    Hmmm… Need to get trading standards onto this seller! It’s not a “space suit”, it’s a G-suit, used to prevent blackout in high-G plane manoeuvres. Did they not think that having “inside pockets” might be a bit of a waste of time in a space(or pressure) suit?

      I’d re-think that. I’m not sure if you’d want one for “eight bucks” because adjusted for 1969′s inflation, it would cost you $55 today. And this might have been an ad from earlier than 1969 so that figure is a low estimate!
