    I wonder if they'll sell any - and even more, I wonder if anyone will actually wear it outside.

    I'd buy and wear this, provided there's one in my size, and if I can even order it from Canada.

    If I had the money, yeah, I'd get it. And I'd wear it in public.

    Of course, I also wore my DS9 uniforms on the bus on my way to see Star Trek Into Darkness more than once, so I could give a damn what the public thinks of my geekery.

    I'd wear the hell outta something like that. Both the ENT and BSG jackets look badass.

    I'd wear it if I was a male. It's dorky, but it's good.

    Amen! Wish more people would just embrace who they are and not worry what others think.

    And hell yes I would wear that!

    Takin' a lesson from my late grandmother - the older I get, the less I'm gonna give a flyin' fuck.

    It is dorky looking. They could have done without the breast patches -- makes it look really cluttered. Speaking of patches, thats not the Ent patch on the right shoulder. I would think that it had better be on the left shoulder.

    I'd wear it without the breast patches AND as long as there was an Ent patch on one of the sleeves.

    It appears the sleeves will have the Starfleet patch and the NX-01 patch, according to the description. But I agree, while the excess patches may be appropriate to a "flight jacket", it takes away from the overall look.

    Quite frankly, I would've jumped at this if the front patches were optional. In fact, without and patches may even be better.

    Star Trek merchandise doesn't need to scream "STAR TREK!!!". Subtlety is good. Fans would recognize the jacket design, and others would just wonder what the gold lines on the shoulders are about on this dork's jacket...

    The patches are a little bit of over kill. It's trying too hard to imitate the flight jackets worn by fighter pilots - it's not a million miles away from the jacket Tom Cruise wears in Top Gun - but it just falls flat.

    You should have seen the jacket a month ago when I had 7 patches on the prototype.

    Until February I WAS in the USAF, and four patches is NOTHING on a pilot's personal flight jacket. Try to design something people will like...

    Hola John, thanks for the feedback! I don't doubt that the multiple patches on the flight jacket are reflective of real contemporary flight jackets; I just suspect those wishing for fewer patches would rather the jackets be more like regular ENT uniforms in jacket form than NX-style flight jackets per se. ;)
