Named as one of TIME Magazine's Best Inventions and as Sports Gear of the Year by WIRED, the Solar Charged Jacket is made from a highly responsive material that can be instantly charged and made to glow in the dark by any light source you can find. Whether you’re writing on it with your iPhone torch, drawing on it with a flashlight, charging it up underneath a lightbulb, or wearing it out in the sunshine, as soon as you take it somewhere dark it glows like kryptonite.

And while this is the kind of tech that would normally only work in a lab, the Solar Charged Jacket performs amazingly out in the real world. With every detail laser cut and welded, it’s waterproof, stretchy and so soft and lightweight you can roll it up into your hand.

You can charge your jacket with the sun

The Solar Charged Jacket is naturally fuelled by sunlight, so one of the easiest ways to charge it is by wearing it outside during the day. Whether it’s for 2 minutes or 2 hours, the jacket will store the energy from the sun and start glowing as soon as you head somewhere dark. Even if it’s a cloudy day or you leave it near a window, daylight is bright enough to charge it up.

At 230g it’s good for any adventure

The Solar Charged Jacket is the Swiss army knife of jackets. At 230g it’s ultra-light and packable. So even if it’s been stuffed in your bag all day, it takes very little space or weight and the tech can’t fail. You can use it day or night for any type of sport or adventure to light you up and keep you safe and dry. Whether you’re heading out training in the dark, running an ultra through the mountains, climbing, riding, or out on the water, it works as a phenomenal lightweight rain jacket, windbreaker, emergency layer or safety device.
