Size Recommendations Men:
We tried to be as accurate and true to the original Mini-Gecko Windbreaker as possible when we brought it back. It was created to be just like our "old-school" 80's and 90's windbreakers, so it has the same 80's sizing. This means that is slightly smaller in certain areas and slightly "larger/puffier" in some areas.
For men, we recommend sizing up...
For example, if you are usually a large, and you are used to 2021 clothing cuts and sizes and want a slightly "looser" feel, we suggest getting an XL. Sizing up mostly effects the elastic "waist" of the windbreaker (the elastic is built to last, so it is strong - -however, overtime it will "break-in" to your perfect size. Sizing up also helps with the length of the bottom of the windbreaker, because in the 80's clothes styles were "shorter."
For A Mens's Slightly Looser/Longer/More Modern Fit:
If you are normally a Small, we recommend a Medium.
M = L
L = XL
XL = XXL
XXL == XXXL
Size Recommendations Women:
We recommend ordering in your exact size.
Many times women will size down from a men's size, however because these windbreakers are built to have an 80's look. feel and fit -- they are slightly smaller than a modern cut.

About The Design
This design was originally only a "Front Pocket Logo" from the late 80's & early '90s. It was used on a TON of shirts, but most famously, it was used on the Gecko Hawaii line of "Splatter" shirts. which were some of our most popular shirts of all time.
We decided to create a shirt that was 1/2 original 1980s, with a new 2021 twist. We do this from time to time, as there are changes in technology, color-ways, etc. However, it is important that at the core of any new "twist" design, we keep the complete retro feel.
This shirt was originally set to feature the Green Gecko, but in the middle of the process (right before the final layer of green was about to be implemented) we "stopped the press!" Something about the texture of the puff, the color of the pullover, and the white of the "unfinished puff" screamed out loud to the team -- and we made a game time decision to leave the Gecko "unfinished."
The "white/unfinished" Gecko -- combined with the fact that in the original artwork, the Gecko is broken up into rad little pieces of puffed ink that look like cobblestone -- gives it a MEGA 80s, yet deconstructed feel. That's why we call this one... "Gecko Deconstructed."
Enjoy it -- as it's rare when we change the Gecko's color!

The Look, The Feel, The History of Gecko's Splatter:
Our neon green, pink, white, blue and black splatter was different than other contemporary’s at the time because although we used neon —it was much more subtle — using super small — yet evenly dispersed paint specks all over the shirt. At the time (and still today), most splatter shirts consisted of either one color, multi-color with huge streaks and splashes. That can look cool, but it can also be hard to pull off and can look too busy. We wanted to release something that had a “pop” and was rad — but was strong and subtle. By using the “speckle/splash” technique,it gave the shirt a look as though it was almost part of the fabric itself.
If you still happen to own of the early splatter shirts, you’d notice that the paint had a lot more texture to it. As time went on, with larger mass production, the addition of graphics, and new types of paint — the splatter was flattened in the “flashing” process. However, our goal for the first Splatter shirts, hoodie, jogger re-release was to re-create that first ever splatter shirt we made. It is fully equipped with the original texturized splatter from the late 80’s early 90’s (check out the video, we even used some of the VERY SAME paint from back then!). with a simple pocket logo. This required us to splatter by hand — not by graphic design or digital printer.You can feel the quality and it is AWESOME. As far as we know, there is nothing else out there like it today.
The Gecko Hawaii women's Whie Camo & Cropped Windbreaker is a simple white windbreaker, with extremely subtle grey camo tones.
The pink neon logo is what makes this windbreaker POP! It;s also cropped right above the waist and perfect for the retro gecko gal who likes a more subdued look with a retro feel.
Functional AF -- Totally light -- it can be crammed into a bag without taking up much space at all, and the front kangaroo pouch is a throwback, but keeps your phone and wallet super safe on rollercoasters, boats, or just cruising around.
An awesome and unique windbreaker for warm spring days & hot summer nights!
