- B. Welson & Co., United States of America
- Michael Collins
- This is a four-piece inflight coverall garment assigned to astronaut Michael Collins for use during his Apollo 11 mission in July 1969.
- The complete garment consists of jacket, which was equipped with reinforced holes on the upper torso through which the medical connectors could pass; trousers with a snap and elastic waist for adjustment; and boots which had a snap attachment to the legs of the trousers and a circular Velcro patch on the soles. It is constructed of a Teflon-coated beta 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.
- NASA transferred these trousers to the Museum in 1974.
