World’s First Spacesuit Engineered for Virgin Galactic. Spacewear of the future. Watch the video for a closer look.

In January 2019, Virgin Galactic Founder Sir Richard Branson and Under Armour CEO and Founder Kevin Plank announced a collaboration. Under Armour became Virgin Galactic’s Technical Space wear Partner. Nine months later the companies unveiled the collaboratively designed space wear system for Virgin Galactic astronauts.   It consists of a base layer, spacesuit, footwear, training suit and Limited Edition astronaut jacket.

It is the first such collection ever created specifically for private astronauts.  The design is a unique combination of comfort and utility matched by the ultimate focus on customer experience.

The spacesuit is made from lightweight flight-grade fabrics.  With cushioning in elbows, knees and the footwear.  It helps provide safety in out-of-seat zero gravity.  It can be worn by both male and female passengers on a Galactic flight.

Materials for the space wear rigorously tested in laboratory conditions which match the measured environment at all stages of spaceflight. Designed to be a perfect fit for any wearer.

Are you a space fan.  Would you want to take a Galactic space journey?  Would you like to wear the new space suit?  It is much different to what we are normally used to seeing astronauts wear in orbit.  What do you think of the footwear?  Do you like the colour?  Would it make the catwalk?  Is the design setting a trend?  Will there be a choice?

It is an amazing venture set up by Sir Richard Branson.  It is his heart’s desire to be the first in space. There’s a launch planned early 2020 will he be on it?  Tourists have already booked seats on his first flight into space.  Others are lining up to take the journey.  What will you wear?  Will you don the new space suit?
