I remember seeing these ads in all sorts of magazines, but I did not encounter one until I was at my friend’s house and we found one in his Mom’s coat closet. The thing looked a lot like a spacesuit. I am pretty sure if she had not come home while were taking it off the hanger that we would have taken turns wearing it and playing astronaut. It was disappointing at the time, but knowing what it was used for, it is kind of a relief that I never climbed into this thing.
Plus the thing looked really fragile and we would have wrecked it and my friend would have been grounded for sure.
