Description


Apollo Constant Wear Garment worn by Dan Schaiewitz during his EMU LM prep and post evaluation procedures and EMU lunar surface procedure evaluations during Apollo 17 crew training exercises. The manufacturer's tag is sewn inside the collar, reading: "Constant Wear Garment, P/N SEB 13100061-208, Size ML, S/N 1361, Date March 1969, Contract No. NAS 9-7721, Contractor Atlas Underwear Corp." In very good condition, with scattered staining, a few small holes, and some short tears along seams. Accompanied by a large 27 x 21 framed display identifying the various pockets and openings on the garment, as well as a detailed informational packet compiled by Schaiewitz, including several images of him in the Apollo 17 space suit.

The Constant Wear Garment (CWG) is a one-piece cotton undergarment designed to be worn against the skin, and is designed to provide general comfort, absorb perspiration, and hold the biomedical instrumentation system. It absorbs excess body moisture and prevents the crewman's skin form becoming chafed by the pressure garment assembly. The CWG is donned and doffed through the front opening, which is kept closed by five buttons. Although it may be worn under either the CMP or EV pressure garments, it is normally used during IV phases of the mission or during EVA work from the CM. As Extravehicular Crew Training Engineer at KSC, Dan Schaiewitz wore space suits to help develop, troubleshoot, and verify procedures used by the astronauts. This example was worn by Schaiewitz while evaluating EMU procedures during Apollo 17 training exercises.
