Giveaway: The Space Jacket

By: on March 16, 2015

When I was a young boy I told my mama when I grew up I wanted to be a spaceman. And instead of saying, "Aww honey, that's wonderful. You can be anything you set your mind to," and then giving me a trophy for eating one bite of my oatmeal before throwing a hissy fit until she replaced it with Fruity Pebbles, my mama said, "Aww honey, that's wonderful. But you're nowhere near smart enough to be an astronaut, and you can't even go on long car rides without vomiting all over my seats. Now you can either eat that oatmeal yourself or I can shove it down your throat." The moral of the story is: not every kid can grow up to be an astronaut. But thanks to Betabrand, now every kid can grow up to dress like one. Click here and enter to win a pimped out nod to NASA, The Space Jacket. A $295 value!

This giveaway is open to US residents only.

About The Space Jacket

Steven Wheeler designed the Space Jacket as a tribute to...A-MERica! F yeah!...in space. As the legacy continues across our solar system, so too does it leave its mark on our runways. The Space Jacket features a Tyvek shell with a nylon taffeta lining aesthetically reminiscent of the EVA suits astronauts wear during space walks and "foil" MLI (multi-layer insulation) used on satellites' exteriors. Quilted stitching lines emulating paneled spacecraft surfaces round out the jacket's visuals.

Space Jackets are stuffed with Primaloft Sport synthetic insulation for lightweight, compressible, soft warmth. Elastic binding around the cuffs and hood opening replaces drawcords and Velro. The Space Jacket also features a replica of the STS-53 shuttle mission patch NASA used from 1975-1992, plus an America flag shoulder patch like those sewn on EVA suits.
