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. of U.S. & Imported Materials

Fantastic jacket and customer service!

I'm amazed with the quality and the accuracy of these jackets and am definitely going to be considering acquiring some of LRs other offerings in the future.

Max and the crew at LR are super helpful sorting out any issues you may have, cannot suggest these jackets enough.

No matter where I go with this jacket, it often brings in comments and compliments.

Outstanding, absolutely outstanding.

From every stitch, zipper, clip and fold in this jacket, you will only find perfection. The quality is amazing, with durable materials being used. The jacket fits and feels great and customer service is truly next level compared with genuinely any other place I’ve ever shopped. An absolutely gorgeous replica jacket, well suited for any space enthusiast’s collection.

Fantastic Flightwear

I’ve worn this terrific jacket for a year now, and my appreciation for its topmost quality and really impressive craftsmanship keeps growing. From the first moment opening the NASA-styled stowage bag, to every time it receives compliments from space enthusiasts and impressed bystanders, I’ve been delighted. I chose this design and color because the early 70s were my prime NASA era, and putting it on takes me there. Brilliant work, Max and crew!

Historically Accurate

After purchasing the Type 2 flight jacket and falling in love with it I had to set my sights on this Type 3 flight jacket. Upon arrival, I once again was amazed with the quality, craftsmanship, and historical accuracy of this jacket like it's crewmate the Type 2. I enjoy wearing this jacket with either the custom made NASA MSC name tag purchased through Lunar Replicas or a fitted piece of Velcro displaying mission lapel pins from a particular astronaut's missions, for example Gene Cernan's Gemini IX, Apollo X, and Apollo XVII lapel pins. I highly recommend the Type 3 flight jacket. Wear it with pride honoring those astronaut's who proudly wore them before when we as humans took the BOLD leap for all mankind.
