The model looks super thrilled to be in that thing.

EDIT

Also a completely wasted opportunity to wear Moon-Boots, the original Uggs.

You should be able to hook it up to your air supply at night to keep it nice and dry inside.


#4

That’s. Totally. Ridiculous. I may or may not want one.


#5

Do you have to pay extra for the attitude or does that come with?


#6

Oh yeah, that has I’m going to get laid tonight! written all over it.

/“Why is the number 73 silk-screened onto your bed sheets?”


#7

I think it’s part of the $65 s/h charge.


#8

Who’s a sad wittle astwonaut…

Looks fun. Priced out of my market segment, it’s merely a garment after all, but fun anyway.

For that price, the air supply should be included. It is a good idea, could be operated by sweat sensors and act as a thermal stabilization system within the garment. The cooling system of the original space suits could be taken for inspiration, though it was liquid-operated. This version could use the same layout of coolant channels, but use air instead, with small holes to leak the air out and assist with drying/evaporative cooling.

It’s a $200 sweatsuit, dag-nabbit!


#11

As someone descended from Northern Europeans now living in the American south, I like that idea a lot, and given some purported medical benefits of sleeping cool, I’m willing to try for insurance coverage.


#12

It looks terrible. And the $65 s/h is offensive, why no just be upfront about the price? If you really want overpriced space threads, go with betabrand: http://www.betabrand.com/mens-white-thermal-space-jacket.html


#13

reads SH as Space Helmet

I can understand someone buying the $65 costume space helmet without the ridiculously expensive $140 sweatsuit, but I can’t really understand the reverse. But they don’t say how much the gloves and costume backpack are.


#14

Depends on where it’s being shipped from and how, though. Domestic regular shipping? Yeah, that would be a total rip off. Overseas air shipping? Might not be worth it, but the charge would be more in line with costs.

Handling? That’s always a rip off. There’s no such thing as handling that is distinct from the store’s other costs, such as inventory depreciation, rent, salaries, income tax, etc. What’s next, a “cash register” fee at brick and mortar stores?

(Cough) nerd (cough)


#17

lol, was going to say exactly the same thing. Maybe he could try something like this:

Best smile ever.


#18

The lesson is simply that even hot models can’t make sweats look good, and they know it, and they resent the fact.


#19

I felt this needed a separate reply because OMFG those are awesome and I need these in my life.


#20

I can’t see anything to substantiate the $65 S/H. All I saw when trying to check out was $25, which is ridiculous to be sure, especially for clothing, but it’s not clearly profit-making concealed as shipping costs.
