Product Details

In honor of NASA and the Kennedy Space Center we created the lightweight NASA L-2B flight jacket. The flight nylon shell features three patches including the NASA meatball, a U.S. flag, and a Kennedy Space Center Shuttle experience. The shoulders include snap-down epaulets. This jacket will be restocked for Spring 2017.
  • The NASA L-2B has knit cuffs, waistband and collar.
  • The flight jacket has two flap snap pockets and two interior snap pockets.
  • The left sleeve features Alpha's signature zippered utility/pencil pocket.

Product History

The L-2B flight jacket was introduced in the early 1950s for use in light temperature zones (50 to 86 degrees F). Initially the bomber was only used by the U.S. Air Force which is why the USAF insignia was put on the sleeve. The flight jacket went through many specification updates including the removal of the oxygen tab, snap tabs and epaulets, along with the USAF logo as the jacket was eventually adopted by the Navy and other branches of the armed forces. The L-2B was replaced by the CWU-36/P in the 1970s although some ground crews and USAF personnel continued to wear it into the 1990s. Alpha’s first DOD contract for the L-2B was in 1960 and continued until 1994. In the 1970’s Alpha made the L-2B for the commercial market but put the epaulets back on and added the Navy color.
