Technological advancements in sportswear have gone beyond fitness bracelets to actual clothing with high-tech features. We’ve seen textiles that incorporate LED lights for cosmetic effect, but this is something a little different, and a lot more useful.
The high-tech wearable in question is the Solar Charged Jacket by Vollebak. The unique sportswear is perfect for night joggers who want to exercise safely at night since the jacket glows in the dark.
Charged by the sun during the daytime, the jacket glows after sundown. It’s all due to a phosphorescent compound that absorbs and stores light before releasing it in the dark. The jacket only takes a few hours to recharge, which may be accomplished in the sun or under nearly any direct light source. It’s equipped to glow for up to 12 hours at night.
Additional features like a waterproof membrane and an extremely lightweight construction make the windbreaker ideal for any outdoor adventure.
The Solar Charged Jacket by Vollebak is available for $350.
