"Gecko Express" HYPERFLASH and LIGHTLY PUFFED Blue to White Heat-Activated Hyper Color Changing Shirt!
This Shirt Is Epic... There is no doubt that a few of you had it as a kid.
The art was originally created by one of our Gecko artists Jeff McKindly and it perfectly re-captures that awesome "classic car" / old school cartoon / "Mini-Truckin' Magazine" feel of the late 80s and early 90's!
At the time, Hot-Rods were beyond awesome.
We specifically remember a few magazines that were in our big brother's room called "Car-Toons" "Mini-Truckin'" and "Hot Rod" -- (shown below) - You can see how they influenced the art of "Gecko Express" at the time.
This Gecko Express Tee not only captures the crazy nostalgic hot-rod feel, but the color-way is epically retro of the time period too.
There is a TON of detail in the art, from the retro Gecko logos on the surfboards --- to the way we blended the inks -- even using the old blend process that makes it look like a "dot-matrix" printer -- or an old comic book.
It will quickly become one of your favorite Gecko Tees...
Proudly dyed and printed in the USA
Gecko HYPERFLASH is a homage and retro flashback to the magical "thermochromatic" color-changing apparel of the early 1990's.

SIZING - PLEASE READ!
How To Choose Your Fit & Size
For HYPERFLASH ThermoChromatic Tees
If you've tried both of our slim fit tees and our classic fit/pigment dyed tees -- the sizing of these is somewhere in between. The closest sizing would be the Hanes Beefy T -- although on the HYPERFLASH shirts, the cotton is a lighter cotton than a Beefy T-- it's about 5 OZ ringspun, combed cotton -- which is thicker than our slim beach tees, but thinner than our more heavy, pigment dyed and classic fit tees.
The reason why HyperFlash Thermochromatic sizing is slightly different than our normal tees, is due to the Thermochromatic dyes, which undergo a washing process. This actually eliminates about 95% of shrinkage prior to your purchase.
So, If you like a looser feel/fit, definitely go a size up. The shirts are normal in the shoulder areas (much like the Hanes Beefy T), but the "stomach" area is ever so slightly smaller from the washing process.
If you are taller, or have a bigger mid-section and like longer sleeves, we also recommend going a size up too. So if you are usually a medium, go with a large ---
However, if you like a normal/slightly slimmer/tighter fit around the arms and mid section -- go with your true to size.
Gecko Hawaii HYPERFLASH shirts are heat activated and change color around 80 degrees, which gives it a super rare, "living, breathing, tie dye" feeling. Think of it as "the mood ring" of t-shirts -- but WAAAAAY cooler!
Thermochromatic technology has improved dramatically since the 1990's, but most apparel companies don't make it, because they are afraid to take risks, and it is REALLY expensive to make. However, our fans kept asking since our relaunch, so we are making it happen again!
