Saturn V Escape Velocity by Guy Pendlebury

NASA was founded on 29 July 1958, almost exactly just 11 years later, 20 July 1969, they put Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon. The Saturn V rocket did the heavy lifting. It had the power, with the help of the Moon’s gravitational pull, to put The Lunar Module onto The Moon’s surface and The Command Module into Lunar orbit. Startling, impressive, utterly reliable, a pinnacle of American engineering and altruism. Chapeau!

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
