Official NASA Gear is a store owned and operated by the NASA Ames Exchange, an instrumentality of the US Government, located at NASA Ames Research Center in the heart of California's Silicon Valley. Official NASA Gear is a brand created with the sole purpose of supporting NASA employees, so 100% of the proceeds from all Official NASA Gear go directly to NASA employees in the form of morale, welfare, and recreation (MWR) activities.
All of the gear we offer is custom designed for NASA and space enthusiasts.
All of our clothing is ethically sourced following the World Responsible Apparel Practices standards.
Operations for Official NASA Gear are paid for with non-appropriated government money, not federal tax money.
