If you manage to make a coat that can glow like kryptonite, then you must be dealing in top-notch technology. Vollebak certainly has risen to that occasion! A jacket made of “highly responsive” material that can be charged by exposure to virtually every light source, from the sun to your smartphone flashlight. The Solar Charged jacket has a waterproof membrane that absorbs light during the day to deliver luminescence in the dark.
The hood and waistband feature elastic strings. The jacket has a waterproof zipper fitted with a storm flap for extra protection. The cuffs are laser cut and fit well. On the back, the jacket has a waterproof bag for your smartphone, wallet or keys.
The jacket is waterproof, stretch, lightweight (230 grams) and costs € 325,-
