Gecko Hawaii X HYPERFLASH - Heat Activated Color Changing Tee!


This is a tee called "Happy Gecko" and it's one of the first tees that we have re-issued from the 1990s. 

It was hand-drawn by surfers over a few weeks... a little bit added to it each day.
To us, it looks like an awesome doodle that you would have found in a "Trapper Keeper" back in 1991 -- at the start of the grunge era.

Back then, you would be wearing this while watching the video for Nirvana's "Smell's Like Teen Spirit" -- or just finding out that Vanilla Ice's "Ice, Ice, Baby" was sampled from a song by the band Queen -- and trying to understand what a "sample" even was...

Please note: The color in these images may vary, because the shirt is so awesomely bright has contrasting colors, it makes it REALLY difficult for us to take the perfect photos with consistent lighting. The main photo is true to color, however it looks WAY COOLER in person!

Gecko HYPERFLASH is a homage and retro flashback to the magical "thermochromatic" color-changing apparel of the early 1990's.

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 made it happen for this SUPER LIMITED collection!



In order to treat the shirt with Thermochromatic pigment technology, the shirts go through a special washing process. They are accurate in sizing, but slightly -- just a tad -- smaller than our usual shirts.  If you are between sizes (in the tummy), we recommend going up a size.
