Adam Savage's Mercury Spacesuit Replica

A double dose of space awesomeness! Adam shares with us two prized possessions: a perfect replica of the coveted NASA-issued blue flight jacket worn by Apollo astronauts, and a recreated silver full-body pressure suit used in NASA's Mercury missions. Yep, it's the iconic U.S. Navy Mark IV suit designed by B.F. Goodrich Company and worn by astronauts like John Glenn.

Photo gallery of the suit for an up-close look at the details here.

(For discussion of the Apollo flight jacket replica, see this thread.)

Absolutely stunning. Great reproduction suit from an era not seen as much. Any info on how I can get a similar helmet please e-mail me. Thanks.

Makes sense, I know Savage has a decent A7-series suit replica he's working on to make more accurate.

He was also a model maker on the movie, "Space Cowboys."

The maker of that suit can be found on eBay here.
