With so many gadgets to power up, it would be really awesome if there were a jacket which allowed for the juicing up of these gadgets all in one place?
Well there is when you use a solar jacket. Many clothing manufacturers are looking to harness the power of the sun and make their clothing not only great looking, but functional as well.
A solar jacket usually has holes and compartments fitted in strategic locations which allow the placement of either an mp3 player, a digital camera or other small electronic. And then there are built-in solar panels usually on the back of the jacket or sleeves, in the case of the solar jacket pictured above from ZEGNA it’s in the sleeves.
How much juice could you get out of the Zegna solar jacket? It would take approximately five hours of sunlight to juice up your iPod or cell phone.
Not bad if you’re on an extended outdoor trip or jaunt.
The ZEGNA solar jacket comes in the color black and the solar panels are detachable as well if you prefer to not carry around your green cred.
