A Designer Created The Ultimate Winter Coat With NASA-Inspired Technology
Wheeler, a long time NASA fan, designed the jacket as a tribute to the legacy of American spaceflight."I wanted it to embody everything I loved about the space program, and to eventually serve as an actual flight jacket for present-day astronauts on missions to the ISS (International Space Station)," Wheeler wrote on Betabrand.
The outer layer is made from Tyvek, a light, breathable, and resilient material made from high-density polyethylene fibers, and was modeled after the EVA (extra-vehicular activity) spacesuits worn by astronauts during actual spacewalks. And for true NASA-enthusiasts, the Space Jacket has a replica of the STS-53 shuttle mission patch, the infamous NASA "worm" logo, and an American flag shoulder patch. Needless to say, this jacket would be the perfect thing to take with you on those possible future space travel expeditions - or just to use on a really chilly day.
