ANNOUNCING OUR EXACT REPLICA FLIGHT SUITS, COMING Q4 2020!  

HELP US DEVELOP A PRODUCT!  BE A BETA TESTER FOR THESE FLIGHT SUITS.  We have a few sample sizes we can sell with the caveat that they may not fit, and we'll need fit information from you after you recieve it and wear it.  We need this feedback to help finalize the current size chart, and decide if we're making Long and Short sizes of these.  

These flight suits match the original blue Flite Wear suits worn throughout the Gemini and Apollo programs for training, publicity photos, and splashdown.

These flight suits are built from the ground up using historic examples to recreate the original, exactly as they were made for our early astronauts & crews.  These jumpsuits could be worn as coveralls over clothing, or worn alone with undergarments.

All facets match the original flight suits exactly, including custom dyed fabric, vintage style solid brass zippers (all 14 of them!), double pull main zipper, pen pockets on both the left sleeve and right ankle, and mil-spec Velcro Brand hook & loop material sewn to waist adjustment tabs.  Designed and fit like the originals, these run comfortable for long seated flights. 

Each flight suit comes with a vintage-style "Type 2" NASA logo patch sewn on.  These patches are embroidered on original machinery with vintage materials, matching the originals in every way (a $25 value alone). Also sewn to the flight suit is a piece if Velcro Brand fastener loop tape for your name badge and wings on the right chest, as worn originally by NASA astronauts.

U.S. Men's Chest Sizes 36 through 52 will be available. (SIZE CHART COMING SOON)

Price: $380-$399 each, plus shipping. 

Made in the U.S.A.
