I put this in space exploration because, as the Apollo missions were many-fold in historic breakthroughs in everything from navigation to materials, this is from the era of such discoveries and inventions.

This was a coat offered by McGregor licensed by NASA/APOLLO, utilizing new space age materials developed for the astronauts and available through a mail order ad.

Shortly after delivery, a notice was sent recalling the coats with some explaination, (I don't recall, this info was from the original purchaser).


This one was not returned and I now am in posession of the coat.

It has a snap hood and is lightweight with a thin lining, but extremely warm.

I wore it at 18 degrees F, and it's moist here by the sound.

I was almost to warm. The picture is a scan of the tags at collar.

It has pat. #'s and some NASA/APOLLO tag.



What do you think?

Awesome!

Couple of questions-

How much did it set you back?

How did you find it?

It sounds fascinating that you mangaged to acquire the coat!

Are you able to provide us with further images of the coat?

I realise you might not want to wear it and have and identifying personal features in shot, but if you could drape the coat over the back of a chair and snap some pictures of it front and back to let us get a good look at it, that would be great.

What materials is the coat made from? Are there any other identifying features to it?

Looking forward to more info.

Well, I seem to have had to actually work awhile, but here's a few more pics.

Not that exciting looking, but it is what it is.

Here's the back

The jacket is made by McGregor, not NASA...

...and NASA seems to have done a pretty good job getting the rovers to work on Mars 2500% longer than planned...plus they did a pretty good job getting the Cassini probe to Saturn, and the Galileo probe to Jupiter, and the Stardust mission to comet Wild 2, and the NEAR mission that landed on the asteroid "Eros" -- not to mention the 2 Voyager spacecraft that are almost to the edge of the solar system and still working.
