Burton’s Team USA Uniforms Looks Like Spacesuits

Can you spot the similarities? Burton photo. 

It's official, Burton just dropped Team USA's snowboarding uniforms and... well... they're something.  The North Face took subtle inspiration from NASA for the freeskiers' uniforms in the lettering but it stopped there. Burton went full spacesuit, basically creating an exact replica of Neil Armstrong's duds. 

Burton hasn't been afraid to push the design envelope with its Team USA uniforms. The jean/plaid combo of 2010 is the stuff of outerwear legends and this is sure to join the pantheon of strange snowboard kits.  

The best part of the entire collection is a spacesuit onesie. Can't wait to see Shaun White blasting off in those threads. 

Yes, it is more like the space suit that Neil Armstrong has used in his moon mission. If that helmet can also be attached, it would complete the whole suit. I wonder how feasible would this be for the team.
