39A FLIGHT JACKET
ASTRONAUT FRED GREGORY
Legendary former NASA Astronaut Fred Gregory symbolizes the human spirit – our curiosity and passion for discovery. The Astronaut Hall of Fame inductee was the first African-American to pilot and command a space flight. He has logged 455 hours in space. He’s also a mentor, grandfather, outdoorsman, neighbor and waterskiing fanatic. Each limited-edition jacket comes with a certificate of authenticity signed and numbered by this icon of exploration.
Next-level thermal performance
The limited-edition C41 Flight Jacket is designed using modular SOLARCORE® insulation inspired by the spacesuits worn by NASA Astronauts. SOLARCORE® is powered by Aerogel, the NASA-developed technology used to insulate spacecraft at -450°F. It’s our future-focused, bulk-free approach to warmth.
STEM IS OUR MUSE
In 2014, OROS co-founder and CEO, Michael Markesbery was awarded one of a handful of scholarships from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation. It’s their mission to aid the next generation of students in technology and innovation through science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Led by Michael, we at OROS know science and technology is mission critical. That’s why 10% of the C41 Flight Jacket purchase price will benefit ASF to support students in STEM.
