Worth noting: This looks like a Poly-cotton flight suit, rather than a Nomex flight suit. However it is of the correct style (the only difference being that Gibson & Barnes doesn't put a flap behind the zipper on poly-cotton). Gibson & Barnes' poly-cotton suits are darker and have less vibrant colors in bright lighting compared to the correct Nomex suits used by NASA, and this is due to the differences in the fabric.

Also worth noting: The flag patch is the wrong type and of course the Space Shuttle program patch shouldn't be there, but that would be an easy fix.

Overall I'd say this would be a good purchase if someone wanted a budget NASA flight suit replica.
