Details

Outerwear doesn’t get much cooler than Alpha Industries' classic MA-1 NASA Astronaut Flight Jacket. This genuine astronaut flight jacket features the Alpha signature utility or pencil pocket, knit collar, cuffs and waistband to keep in warmth, as well as a 100% water repellent, nylon satin flight shell with polyester interlining. The jacket is also emblazoned with the NASA logo, 100th Space Shuttle Mission and American flag patches. It’s out of this world!

The MA-1 was adopted by US Air Force and Navy pilots and ground crew in the mid-1950s. Designed for use in temperatures between -10 and 10 degrees C, the MA-1 originally had a wool knit collar, waistband and cuffs. The MA-1 discarded the mouton fur collar of its predecessor, the B-15, because it interfered with the parachute harness worn by pilots. The jacket included tabs to which the oxygen mask could be clipped, and  to hold headset wires. In 1960 an indian orange lining was added to the jacket. In the event of a crash, a pilot could then reverse the jacket making them more visible to rescue personnel. As equipment changed, and the jackets were adopted by other branches of the armed forces, many of these features were removed from the jacket.
