If you’re ever flying around among the stars and happen to spot someone floating in a white space suit, you should probably stop and help them. Extravehicular Activity Suits (EVAs) are white to reflect the sun’s heat, but also contrast incredibly well with the inky black emptiness of space. Here are our black and white EDC picks for anyone living a stellar lifestyle, on or off Earth.
