Under Armour has teamed with Virgin Galactic on some new space apparel, something that Virgin Galactic passengers will wear when they're throwing down $250,000 to fly into space.
The new spacesuit looks pretty slick, like it's ripped right out of Star Trek with a blend of Fallout 76 with Under Armour retrofitting the UA RUSH -- the mineral-infused fabric that it sells to athletes. Under Armour says that its new spacesuit will help regulate temperatures and sweat management, which is very important.
I'm digging the blue style that UA has gone with here, but an interesting fact is that the gold accents used on the suit are inspired by rays of sunlight. Under Armour adds that each iteration of the spacesuit went through heaps of testing, with UA getting pilots, spaceship engineers, medical professionals and astronaut instructors to test them out.
There are a bunch of different features built into the suite, with a Star Trek-inspired intergrated communication system, and a heap of pockets. On the chest is a clear pocket for wearers to insert a photo of a loved one, while the suits also have a removable patch that can be transferred to (what I'm hoping are) equally-as-fashionable flight jackets for everyday wear.
The matching boots are inspired by racecar drivers' footwear, with Under Armour making them lightweight -- versus huge, heavy boots.
