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?
