Type 1 - Early-style Gemini/Apollo flight jacket

LIMITED RUN ONLY -  These jackets are built from the ground up using historic examples to recreate the original "Type 1" NASA Flight Jacket, exactly as they were worn by Gemini, and Apollo astronauts & crews.  

All facets match the original Type 1 jackets exactly: including single-piece woven cuffs, exposed sleeve zipper, khaki colored main zipper, original new-old-stock nickel pocket snaps, custom dyed vintage lining fabric, and a soft non-water resistant shell fabric that is indistinguishable from the original. 


Each jacket comes with a vintage-style "Type 3" NASA logo patch sewn on.  These are embroidered on original machinery with vintage materials, matching the originals in every way (a $25 value alone).  Also sewn to the jacket is a piece of Velcro Brand loop tape for your name badge and wings on the right chest, as worn originally by NASA astronauts (and we now make custom vintage-style leather wings AVAILABLE HERE).

This isn't anything you've seen before. Luna Replicas spent nearly a year developing these jackets with our custom manufacturer in Los Angeles, to bring you the finest wearable, museum-quality reproduction possible.  You will not be disappointed. 

U.S. Men's Chest Sizes 36 through 52 will be available in this limited run.

Unworn size exchanges accepted within 5 days of delivery, with a 10% restocking fee plus shipping costs. (Please check the SIZE CHART, and CONTACT US with any questions before you order.)

Immaculate. Just immaculate.

From the moment you pull it out of its gorgeously crafted tote bag, this jacket stands out as the highest fidelity replica NASA flight jacket on the market. The beautiful pastel blues and sharp oranges of the materials stand out crisply in a calm and understated, yet truly beautiful amalgam of creases, folds, stitch work and talent. The materials themselves feel truly robust, with high quality stitch work tying this piece of museum quality clothing together. Looking at photos of the real jackets and this one, you will be hard pressed to ever find discrepancies between the two. This recreation truly is the highest fidelity replica you can find anywhere. It fits well and looks amazing wether you’re wearing it or keeping up for show, a perfect addition to any space enthusiast’s collection. I highly recommend this jacket to anyone on the fence about buying it. I can say with little to no uncertainty, that you will not be disappointed with your purchase.

Great Jacket

Jacket is fantastic having seen an original in person this reproduction is spot on. The customer service is fantastic.

Amazing Piece of Wearable Memorabilia

This jacket looks like it could have been found in a forgotten box in a back room at NASA. It is THAT good. And the fit is perfect. I had thought to go down a size to achieve that “slim look” of the originals, but this jacket fits just as I had hoped. Luna Replicas really hit it out of the ballpark with this project.

Hoping to see more along these lines in the future (maybe a light blue Gemini/Apollo flight suit, please and thanks?)

Great work!!

Not to be corny but they are out of this world!

These jackets are breathtaking. Everything is perfect right down to the fit. Zippers, snaps, patch... everything is perfect. Thank you to Luna Replicas for such pain staking research into the details. Now stop producing amazing products or else I’ll go broke!!!
