Under Armor and Virgin Galactic presented equipment for space tourists

The equipment follows the shape of the body to ensure maximum mobility. When it was created, special fabrics were used that controlled temperature and sweating. The lower layer should increase blood flow during flight.

The design in blue with gold accents is inspired by the cosmos and the rays of light falling on the Earth.
