NOW IN STOCK!
Luna Replicas brings you the continuation of our flagship line, "Flight Wear" Type 3 Gold NASA flight jackets. These jackets are built from the ground up using historic examples to recreate the original jackets, exactly as they were made for the Apollo astronauts & crews toward the end of the Apollo Program and into the Skylab period.
All facets match the original Type 3 jackets exactly: including single-piece woven cuffs, reinforced sleeve zipper, dark gray colored main zipper, black leather zipper tabs, original new-old-stock black enameled pocket snaps, heavy white "combat nylon" lining fabric, and a water-resistant shell fabric that is indistinguishable from the original.
These jackets are water resistant and ready for any mission! The waterproofing is sturdy out of the box, but softens up with wear or after a drycleaning or two. Wear your jacket proudly knowing that it can withstand the elements.
Each jacket comes with a vintage-style "Type 5" 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 jacket 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 in the 1960s and early 70s (and we now make custom vintage-style leather wings AVAILABLE HERE).
(Also available without patches in a limited run HERE)
This isn't anything you've seen before. Luna Replicas spent over 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. (SEE SIZE CHART)
Price: $329-$355 each, plus shipping.
Made in the U.S.A.
