Most of these jumpsuits were very similar, apart from the one shown on the photos the others were with the same design but of different colors : White with black eagle, dark blue with silver eagle. The only one that was clearly different was the " Indian Feather jumpsuit ". Although these eagle suits looked basically the same, the red version had the eagle facing the opposite way.
