With a knit collar, cuffs, and waistband to keep cold air out, this classic MA-1 flight jacket features assorted NASA Apollo space mission patches. A commemorative Apollo 11 mission patch and a NASA meatball patch decorate the front panels. The American flag arm patch and a utility/pencil pocket adorn the left sleeve. A large circular arrangement of Apollo mission patches fill out the back of the jacket.
Introduced by the mid-1950s, the MA-1 became the flight jacket of U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots and ground crew. Designed for use in temperatures of 14-50 degrees Fahrenheit, the MA-1 had a 100% wool knit collar, waistband, and cuffs.
