Introducing our "Flite Wear" Astronaut line of LIMITED EDITION historic replica Recovery Ship Hats.
These are fitted hats, and have no elastic band or adjustment. Please see the size chart below, paying close attention to the measurements. These hats run slightly loose when new. Order a size down if you prefer a tighter fit right out of the box.
These replicate the hats worn by the Apollo 13 astronauts on the recovery ship, USS IWO JIMA.
Price is for 1, FRED HAISE hat. These are assembled to order, and will be shipped within 3 weeks of purchasing.
Based on the original "Harvard" brand hats used by the US Navy for crew baseball caps, we have recreated these hats exactly like the originals including:
- Navy blue wool shell material
- Green underbrim
- White leather with red trim sweatband
- Sewn vent holes
- Individually chain-stitched embroidered crown patches, matching Fred Haise's original hat
- Chain stitched embroidered "scrambled eggs" patch sewn to the brim
Just like the originals, these come in fitted sizes rather than the modern stretch or tab hats. Feel proud to wear this hat in the 50th Anniversary year and for years to come!
Since these are made to order, returns or exchanges will incur a restocking fee of $30, plus shipping. Please see the size chart below, paying close attention to the measurements. These hats are slightly loose when new. Order a size down if you prefer a tighter fit right out of the box.
