Inflight Coverall Garment, Trousers, Irwin, Unflown
These trousers are part of a four-piece inflight coverall garment assigned to astronaut James Irwin for use during his Apollo 15 mission in July 1971. However, they were never used.
The complete garment consists of jacket, trousers and boots which had a circular Velcro patch on the soles. It is constructed of a Teflon-cloth which is highly fire resistant, and the "slippery" qualities of the fabric enabled the astronaut to don and doff the garment with ease in a weightless environment.
The jacket had a US flag on the left shoulder and a NASA "meatball" logo on the upper torso. Flight garments also had a mission symbol attached to the upper torso.
Transferred from NASA to the Museum in 1978.
