Copper jacket can protect you from the weather and diseases (even in space)

Jackets are more than just fashion accessories, especially if you live or visit areas with extreme weather conditions. We’re seeing a lot of brands that come up with lines that can withstand the cold, rain, snow, etc but also will make the wearers look good when sporting them. Volleback is one such brand and we’ve seen several products from them that use materials that are not the usual we see in most of these apparel. Now we’re getting a Full Metal Jacket that is made from one of the most advanced materials available – copper.

Designer: Volleback

When you think of a jacket made from copper, you might think it’s something pretty heavy and bulky. But the process that they made to use copper in this jacket line is pretty interesting. They used 11 kilometers of copper for each jacket, using copper that is both extremely strong and malleable at the same time. Rods of electrolytic industrial copper pass through a machine repeatedly and turns them into thin copper strands. These yarns are then layered with thin coats of lacquer and go through a 6-day curing process and then laminated with an advanced waterproof and breathable membrane called c_change®.

The entire jacket is made from 59.5% copper, 20% polyurethane, 20% polyamide, and 0.5% other metals and is waterproof (fully seam-sealed), windproof, and breathable. Each Full Metal Jacket has 2 fleece-lined zipped side pockets; 2 giant front bellows pockets with angled storm flaps, 2 zipped upper chest pockets concealed behind storm flaps, and 1 zipped internal pocket. Despite the seemingly heavy material and all these features, the jacket is not bulky at all and looks pretty lightweight. There are three colors available – black, copper, and silver.

The reason why they chose copper as a material for this edition is that it can be used for disease-resistant clothing since it’s biostatic. In fact, NASA is now experimenting with the material to create medical instruments that can be used in the International Space Station to protect astronauts. So if we eventually get to space in the future, then this jacket can also help protect us from infection and diseases.

Remember Aerogel? This insulated outdoor jacket has an aerogel layer, giving you -40°F protection

Anyone who even vaguely remembers the late 2000s remembers Aerogel, the ‘wonder material’ that was 99% air, and had the incredible ability to insulate against high heat or cold because of its thermal absorption properties. Aerogel got all the press back in the day, but didn’t really see much consumer application because of how difficult it was to produce. Cut to the year 2024 and a Tokyo-based company has managed to find a fitting application for Aerogel. Meet SpacePeak, an outdoor jacket that sits on the bleeding edge of technology with its own aerogel insulation layer that can protect you in temperatures as extreme as -40°C (-40°F). What’s more, it has a 3-in-1 design with removable inner layers, allowing you to wear it in regular weather too, and it has over 20 pockets for all your EDC and essentials.

SpacePeak has perfected aerogel technology to retain the most heat from your body. From there, heat circulates throughout your whole jacket keeping you warm and dry even in the harshest conditions.

The SpacePeak comes with a two-part design that gives you 3 jackets in one. On the inside, it features a functional puffer jacket, insulated with Aerogel and a thermal layer that helps keep you warm and snug in pretty much any weather. The outer jacket is a waterproof wind-breaker with a hood that helps ensure you stay dry in the rain or during a blizzard. Wear them individually based on what the weather is, or combine them together to give you a jacket powerful enough to brave all the elements. The outer layer is rated 20,000mm waterproof and keeps you from succumbing to rain, storm, sleet, and snow, while the inner aerogel jacket helps build an impermeable barrier between your body temperature and outer temperature.

You can finally ditch your puffy jacket and start wearing something that keeps you warmer with less weight and fluff.

The jacket is rated to protect you in temperatures as low as -40°C (also -40°F), although lab tests show the SpacePeak can easily endure temperatures as low as -196°C (-320°F). While there’s really no place on Earth where humans would endure those temperatures, it’s good knowing that the jacket can handle pretty much the coldest weather possible without giving up. That being said, it’s worth noting that the aerogel doesn’t physically warm you – it creates a thermal barrier between the cold environment and your warm body, so you don’t lose any body heat to the cold outdoors.

Store your laptop or tablet in the back pocket to carry your valuables safely and efficiently.

Chances are that places that hit -40°C aren’t the kinds of places you want to be carrying massive backpacks to either, which is why the SpacePeak packs more than 20 pockets for pretty much all your gear. Strategically placed all across the jacket’s inner and outer surfaces, the SpacePeak has every slot imaginable, with large pockets big enough for iPads, protected pockets for gadgets like cameras and phones, waterproof pockets for bottles and food, and quick-access pockets for keys and money. The 20+ tactical pockets turn your jacket into a backpack of sorts, without all the bulkiness associated with backpacks. Your belongings are strategically placed across the jacket, making them A. accessible, but more importantly B. less likely to weigh your shoulders down because of the distributed weight. Besides, who wants to rummage through a backpack in sub-zero temperatures, right?!

The enhanced 20,000 mm waterproofing doesn’t just stop the rain from getting to you, Its waterproofing makes it wind resistant, and it easier to brush dirt, snow, mud and other muck off your jacket.

That being said, you’d expect a jacket with this laundry-list of features to be extremely bulky, but the implementation of aerogel allows the SpacePeak to be thinner and lighter than your average down jacket. Down (or feathers) works exactly like aerogel, using trapped air to create a thermal barrier – however, what down does with an inch of thickness, the Aerogel does with 1/10th the amount, giving you an extreme-weather jacket that doesn’t turn you into the Michelin man or a human marshmallow because of all that padding.

The aerogel used within the SpacePeak was developed by S. Kistler, a company founded after the American scientist and chemical engineer credited with inventing the material in the first place. The aerogel, despite being highly insulating, is breathable, durable, and will retain its thermal properties even after a 100 washes (even with regular use the jacket can probably use a wash once a year). The SpacePeak comes in 4 sizes, ranging from M to 4XL, with a starting price of $299 and global shipping – just in case you want your jacket dispatched to the Arctic Circle!

This modular heated jacket lets you pick your level of warmth and comfort all year round

Nothing is probably more unpredictable than weather, and temperatures can vary greatly even in the same season. People often prepare different wardrobes for different situations, but it can get pretty cumbersome to keep switching jackets whenever the weather changes. Plus, you might have a favorite that you wish you could use whether it’s chilly, sunny, or even rainy. The good news is that such a jacket is no longer just a dream but a toasty reality, thanks to an ingenious jacket design that not only lets you select your desired warmth but also lets you add or remove parts to match the weather, the season, and your sense of style.

One Jacket, Countless Options – Thanks to the precision engineering of its modular design, you get more than a jacket – you get an ally for every occasion.

Heated jackets have been around for quite a bit, but the majority of them are as effective as shoving a hot pack inside the jacket’s pocket. You only have one level of heat, which may be too little or too much depending on the weather. These jackets are also designed to be thick and bulky to keep your body warm, which means you can only use them for a limited number of months each year. The UZE Heated Jacket changes the game completely, promising a jacket that you can wear in all four seasons while giving you the power to decide just how toasty you really need to be.

Look Cool, Feel Hot – Four Graphene heat zones and three heat settings (120°F, 140°F, 160°F) ensure you stay warm in any weather.

The secret to this unbelievable feat is the same graphene technology that the brand uses for its popular power banks, which happens to be a remarkable material for heat conduction. With four graphene heat zones and three heat settings of 120°F, 140°F, and 160°F, you don’t have to frantically search for the right jacket just because it suddenly gets colder or warmer. With a simple touch of a button, you can select the level of warmth that will make you feel comfortable, whether you’re going out for a brisk morning walk or braving the snow. And you don’t have to worry about your jacket running out of power in the middle of the day. UZE is best known for its power banks, so you shouldn’t be surprised that its Heated Jacket carries one that can keep you warm for up to 10 hours and charges in 45 minutes, 10x faster than your run-of-the-mill heated jacket.

Charge 10x Faster, Instant Warmth – The UZE Power Bank keeps you warm for up to 10 hours and charges 10x faster than typical heated jacket power banks (45 minutes vs. 8 hours).

That adjustable warmth is just one of the UZE Heated Jacket’s superpowers. Even when you don’t actually need that kind of heat, the jacket provides comfort and style all year round thanks to its modular design and stylish looks. Add a fur-lined hood when you want to keep your head warm as well or remove the liner when you want a snug fit. There’s even an underarm zipper for better ventilation, perfect for people with more active lifestyles. So yes, you can even wear it as part of your summer glam or fall fashion with its clean style and modern looks.

No More Raining on Your Parade – The fabric’s membranes are 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water but larger than water vapor molecules, achieving superior breathability.

Everything In Its Place, Always Within Reach – Instant access, all within reach. Bank card, key card or ski pass. Bid farewell to fiddly pockets.

One Jacket, Countless Options – Thanks to the precision engineering of its modular design, you get more than a jacket – you get an ally for every occasion.

With waterproof zippers and the specially-developed UZEShield fabric, you can also wear it under the rain or in strong winds. This proprietary fabric prevents water droplets from getting in while allowing water vapor to escape, ensuring enhanced breathability. Want to travel light without a bag? The jacket has plenty of pockets to carry not just the power bank, but also your phone, cards, and other accessories. It even has a cloth wiper for your sunglasses and a built-in keychain holder so you won’t have to worry about losing your keys ever again. With the UZE Heated Jacket, you’re in complete control of your comfort and your style, giving you the exact amount of warmth and protection you need, regardless of what the weather throws at you.

UZE Heated Jacket goes up to a toasty 160°F to keep you warm even in the Harshest Winters

The upcoming El Niño winter could get dangerously chilly across many parts of North America, which means — if you find yourself trapped in one of the spots expected to experience sub-zero temps with lots of ice and snow — you’re going to want a constant source of warmth. Warmth is difficult to sustain in extreme conditions, but UZE has taken the challenge of designing a jacket that might just be able to withstand what could become a mix of the most unrelentingly wet and debilitatingly cold weather seen across the continent in recent years.

UZE, the creator of the graphene-based BOLD 1, the world’s first 265W power bank, is back with a modular heated jacket that takes its graphene tech to a new height of utility and fashion. The UZE Heated Jacket stands out against other, similar jackets, leveraging its bespoke built-in graphene padding tech and customizable warmth settings at the touch of a button. It’s also breathable; once you open up its underarm zippers and detach the hood, you can wear the UZE Heated Jacket in spring or even in summer months, meaning this could be the only jacket you need for the entire year.

One Jacket, Countless Options – Thanks to the precision engineering of its modular design, you get more than a jacket – you get an ally for every occasion.

The most important part of the UZE Heated Jacket is its adaptability across all four seasons. The jacket’s biggest draw comes from its heating system, which is made up of the UZE power bank, a conveniently located button on the front right, and four of UZE’s innovative graphene heat pads which exert warmth evenly throughout the entire jacket. Two are located under the bottom front pockets to keep your hands warm, and the other two are hidden next to your shoulders, meaning your entire body gets cozy when the jacket’s heating system is powered on.

The UZE power bank is stored in a dedicated pocket, can be taken out to be charged and put back in without any hassle. The bank provides power to the jacket’s heating system, and you can charge it in 45 minutes — a big difference from other power banks, which usually take 8 full hours to completely recharge. That means you can stay comfier much longer, and you won’t wait too long without supplemental body heat between charges. The UZE Heated Jacket’s fast-charging power bank sits comfortably within an enclosed pocket, taking up little space while ensuring that you won’t run out of heat during the winter. The jacket’s advanced modular design includes a lot of other strategically placed pockets as well, making it the best place to store all of your everyday carry items (phone, wallet, keys) instead of stashing those in your pants pockets.

Look Cool, Feel Hot – Four Graphene heat zones and three heat settings (120°F, 140°F, 160°F) ensure you stay warm in any weather.

UZE Heated Jacket’s front button lets you choose exactly how much heat you need in any circumstance, cycling between three different settings (plus powered-off mode, which is technically a setting if you consider it one), ranging between Mild (120°F) and Intense (160°F) — ensuring you can forge your way out into all that snow, ice, and darkness without the extreme discomfort generally associated with braving those freezing cold conditions. This jacket could especially make shoveling snow or de-icing roads a lot safer, and by extension, more tenable in extreme conditions. That means it could lessen the collateral damage caused by winter storms.

Charge 10x Faster, Instant Warmth – The UZE Power Bank keeps you warm for up to 10 hours and charges 10x faster than typical heated jacket power banks (45 minutes vs. 8 hours).

But, as I mentioned earlier, the UZE Heated Jacket is adaptable to far more situations than snow and ice. It’s made for all types of inclement weather, and — whether you’re an adventurer looking for an adaptable and durable windbreaker, or an urban explorer who just wants a fashionable jacket which stays warm and dry in rainy conditions — this is the one you want. Not to mention, its smart design makes it an attractive jacket to keep in your wardrobe throughout the year. It sports adjustable cuffs, fingerless gloves, a detachable hood with a wireframe rim that holds its shape in windy weather, and a removable faux-fur lining, making it the most reliable and customizable apparel you can own when tackling many different adverse weather conditions. Even when things warm up in spring, you can continue wearing this jacket without worrying about overheating, and thanks to its modularity. Simply remove the power bank, inner liner, hood and snow-skirt, and you’re left with a cozy, stylish, and minimal-looking jacket that even looks great over tank tops and other summer wear.

No More Raining on Your Parade – The fabric’s membranes are 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water but larger than water vapor molecules, achieving superior breathability.

If you’re worried water can somehow get into the jacket’s interior and interfere with the UZE power bank, don’t be. The entire jacket is made of UZEShield fabric, which is fundamentally wind-proof, and — yes — waterproof. And, there’s even some science to back that claim: UZEShield fabric is woven out of membranes 20,000 times smaller than a single drop of water, meaning you can rest assured it’ll keep any moisture out of the jacket’s interior, where your power bank is nestled.

Everything In Its Place, Always Within Reach – Instant access, all within reach. Bank card, key card or ski pass. Bid farewell to fiddly pockets.

Combined with its water-repellent zippers and foldable rain hem, you can trust it to remain dry when exposed to extreme quantities of water — even if you bring it with you on a river kayaking expedition. Additionally, you can rapidly close it shut with the magnetic buttons — convenience redefined.

One Jacket, Countless Options – Thanks to the precision engineering of its modular design, you get more than a jacket – you get an ally for every occasion.

One Jacket, Countless Options – Thanks to the precision engineering of its modular design, you get more than a jacket – you get an ally for every occasion.

Designed to be worn across the year, the UZE Heated Jacket can easily shapeshift between a slim windbreaker for cooler days or a decked-up double-layered jacket for heavier winters. The underarm zippers enhance your jacket’s overall breathability in spring and summer months, letting you slip on the jacket for outdoor trips, treks, or even wear it as urban wear on your morning commute. Aside from the inner lining, the jacket also sports adjustable cuffs, fingerless gloves, a detachable hood with a wireframe rim that holds its shape in windy weather, and a removable faux-fur for snowy days. Aquaguard Zippers keep your essentials dry and a magnetic flap lets you instantly secure the jacket around you, while a snow skirt avoids snow or gusty winds from entering from the underside, and a pull-out foldable rain-hem lets you sit on the beach or on wet surfaces without getting your pants wet… but the UZE Heated Jacket’s magic lies in its four strategically located graphene heat pads.

Look Cool, Feel Hot – Four Graphene heat zones and three heat settings (120°F, 140°F, 160°F) ensure you stay warm in any weather.

Charge 10x Faster, Instant Warmth – The UZE Power Bank keeps you warm for up to 10 hours and charges 10x faster than typical heated jacket power banks (45 minutes vs. 8 hours).

Activated by the push of a button on your chest, the heat pads help warm you up in extreme weather. Three settings let you toggle between 120°F to 160°F heat levels, while pads located in the lower front and upper back keep your body as well as your hands warm through the chilly weather. The pads are powered by the UZE Power Bank, which conveniently fits into a hidden pocket in the jacket’s chest and can be fully charged in 45 minutes vs the usual 8 hours with standard power banks.

No More Raining on Your Parade – The fabric’s membranes are 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water but larger than water vapor molecules, achieving superior breathability.

Everything In Its Place, Always Within Reach – Instant access, all within reach. Bank card, key card or ski pass. Bid farewell to fiddly pockets.

Other strategically placed pockets let you carry all your belongings like your phone, wallet, and keys, keeping them either hidden or having them in instant-access areas so you can take them out when you want. All the pockets are secured using UZE’s Aquaguard zippers, along with the jacket’s main zipper which is additionally secured with a magnetic flap. The UZEShield fabric and water-resistant zippers keep any sort of moisture out, withstanding up to 20,000mm of harsh rain.

From Mild to Wild – Adapt with a Zip

Whether it’s its all-season all-year design, or the fact that it comes in as many as 6 sizes, the UZE Heated Jacket takes universality rather seriously. The jacket’s unisex design suits men and women, and its slick, all-black avatar works as urban-wear, athleisure, or even as camping outdoor-gear. The jacket starts at a 50% discounted $299, which includes all its modular attachments like the detachable inner liner, the removable hood with the fur attachments, the detachable snow-skirt, and even the UZE Power Bank to run your jacket’s heating function as well as charge your phone, earbuds and even laptop on the go!

Ingenious Jacket Is Designed To Help You Catch A Nap During Your Daily Commute

Getting some beauty sleep in this day and age has slowly transformed from a basic need to an expensive luxury. With our hectic routines, catching some shut-eye can be a task, but one that we must keep aiming to achieve. Lack of sleep can lead to a whole bunch of problems such as anxiety, depression, chronic health issues, and insomnia. The psycho-physical complications arising from a lack of sleep are quite problematic, and what makes it worse, is that we may find ourselves falling asleep at important times of the day for example when we’re working, or meant to be completing tasks. And when we wake up, not only have we lost a significant amount of time, but we’re also welcomed by some severe muscle pain in our necks and backs But this is where designer Loris Dadda has swooped in with an ingenious solution – Napow (Nap On The Way).

Designer: Loris Dadda

I think the name of the product is quite self-explanatory, but let’s dwell a bit deeper. Napow is a sleeveless jacket designed to help you take a quick nap on the way – this could be on your way to work, or back home, or when you’re off running some other errand. You can transform your everyday commute time to nap time, and a very comfortable nap time indeed.

Napow features a harness that supports your head and neck while sleeping, so they don’t get stressed and cause you pain once you wake up. Napow promotes a healthy and correct posture while you sleep, offering your body the support it needs. The collar has been padded with a double layer of polyurethane, making it quite comfy and cozy to nap on.

The purpose of Napow is to isolate the user from the external light of the environment, to encourage a peaceful nap. It eliminates the external stimuli around you while providing a comfortable framework to sleep on. The jacket can help you nap in various seated positions at airport benches, subway seats, and office seats (but only during your lunch break). Employed synthetic fibers, polyurethane, and eco-leather were used to create the jacket.

This jacket is designed to last a 100 years… and it’s made only with cotton, wool, and silk.

Crafted with all-natural, non-synthetic fabrics, the Century Jacket makes a bold claim – to still be functional in 100 years. The Century Jacket’s designed to be water, wind, fire, and abrasion-resistant, and is backed by maker LIVSN’s lifetime warranty and free repairs for life. So what’s the jacket’s secret? Kevlar? Carbon-fiber? Some high-performance chemically engineered polymer fabric? Nope. How about Cotton, Wool, and Silk? Unbelievable, eh?

The Century Jacket comes from the folks at LIVSN, who’ve crafted a reputation for building some of the most rugged, life-withstanding outdoor gear available. Following the success of the EcoTrek pants, which raised over $500,000 and even found itself featured on Men’s Journal and Forbes, the company diverted their attention to building a jacket to go with their ultra-durable pants. The result? A jacket so strong it’ll outlive anyone who buys it. Made from some of the most durable and high-performance natural fabrics, the Century Jacket’s lifetime warranty probably even covers the potential future where the jacket is worn on Mars. And if it can survive the red planet, it sure as heck can survive our beautiful blue cosmic marble called Earth.

Flattering Fit and Functional Form – Has a tailored fit without compromising functionality or comfort.

Organic Ventile Cotton – Developed by British Intelligence to keep pilots alive in WWII. Ventile Cotton was created to be cool and comfortable in the cockpit, yet warm and impenetrable if it came into contact with water.

The jacket comes explicitly designed for outdoor use, with a construction that’s equal parts durable, comfortable, and functional. The Century Jacket’s durability comes from its use of Ventile cotton – a fabric so tough, it helped WW2 pilots stay alive in frigid waters when their planes crashed over the Pacific. It was even worn on the first ascent of Mt. Everest in 1953, and has stood the test of time as one of the most indestructible organic fabrics ever created, even being able to withstand fire while still being comfortable and breathable.

Twill-weave Silk Lining – 100% silk lining to provide unmatched comfort, even better thermoregulation, anti-microbial properties, and more moisture-wicking power.

The outer Ventile cotton shell is supplemented by a British wool filling that’s designed to thermoregulate you – keeping you warm in the cold, but cooling your body temperature down in the heat. The wool’s also capable of insulating you even when wet, and is naturally odor-resistant, so it won’t smell musty even after an all-day excursion. Finally, an inner lining made from Twill Silk gives you a touch of luxury in the great outdoors, while being soft to the touch, breathable for the skin, anti-microbial, quick-drying, and moisture-wicking.

The functionality of those fabrics is augmented by the Century Jacket’s design itself, which is built for flexibility and comfort. The jacket features articulated shoulders for better flexibility, along with reinforced elbow patches and under-arm gussets that allow the fabric to stretch comfortably as you move around. The fabric patches are double-needle stitched together for extra durability, and the jacket is reinforced at all its stress zones, eliminating any points of failure.

The Century Jacket has an understated style that’s perfect for everything from scaling mountains in a thunderstorm, to grabbing a coffee on a chilly day with friends. Zipper-lined pockets on your chest and waist hold your EDC and let you keep your hands warm, while hidden inner pockets let you store your valuables. All the pockets are silk-lined, for comfort as well as for protecting your valuables, and the outer pockets come with YKK zippers, providing durability while keeping wind, water, and dust out.

It isn’t easy building a jacket that promises to last an entire century, even more so using natural materials, but it seems to be a niche that LIVSN is deeply rooted and invested in. The company’s name comes from the Swedish word “livsnjutare,” which roughly translates to “one who lives life deeply; an enjoyer of life.” Just like the brand’s underlying ethos, the Century Jacket is built for anyone who just needs garments to live life in, whether you’re an outdoor photographer looking for reliable clothing, a camper or trekker who appreciates the rugged tactical nature of your garments, a wanderlust who wants a jacket for all climates, or just someone looking for that one all-purpose clothing to suit their style and last an eternity.

The Century Jacket has a tailored fit, and comes in 10 sizes across two colors – Olive Green and Black Navy. The jackets are designed to last and are backed by LIVSN’s lifetime guarantee and free-repair claim. However, the company does specify the most optimal ways to take care of your jacket to have it serve you for as long as possible. LIVSN recommends dry-cleaning your jacket for ‘longest life’, and spot-clean whenever needed. If you choose to machine-wash your Century Jacket, do so with the zippers closed and the garment turned inside out, on a gentle cycle setting with cold water (preferably separately from other garments). The jacket dries quickly, and LIVSN recommends air-drying it while avoiding harsh, direct sunlight. The jacket starts at a discounted price of $439, which may sound like much on its face, but then again, for a jacket designed to last a century, it works out to a little over $4 each year! Wink wink!

Aerogel-embedded puffer jacket by Vollebak creates an ultralight insulation that protects you from -30°C cold

As someone who has lived in a tropical country all her life, I have no concept of what it means to be really, really cold. Sure, I’ve been to countries where I need to wear thick jackets but I’ve never experienced negative degree weather and have not been able to appreciate jackets that can keep you warm and protect you from freezing weather. Down is one of the most popular materials for these kinds of jackets but it’s not really friendly to animals. So a puffer jacket that uses better materials is always welcome.

Designer: Vollebak

The Aerogel Puffer is made from the lightest solid material in the world which is actually used to line spacesuits and insulate electronics. Aerogel has individual neoprenes that are 10,000 thinner than human hair so it is also pretty lightweight and air will not be able to pass through it. The jacket itself has advanced synthetic insulation and its outer shell uses the ultra lightweight yarn so that you’ll be protected from extreme cold weather (even -30 degrees!) but it also won’t weigh you down totally. The insulation fibers and the aerogel trap the air pockets to your body and is also the thermal barrier you’ll need to protect you from the cold air.

The woven yarns used in the jacket (which weighs under 1 gram for 1 kilometer) has a finishing called circe which actually serves as a seal so that weather elements like wind, snow, and light rain will not be able to go through. It also means that your body heat and the insulation it creates will not be able to get out, so you remain warm and snuggly when experiencing some slightly unpleasant weather. You get five zipped pockets, two large ones on the side to keep your hands warm and the others to hold your stuff like phone, wallet, keys, etc.

The Aerogel Puffer looks like most other puffer jackets but it’s supposedly lighter than the ones made from down. The ultralight water-repellant and windproof jacket has a regular fit and is available in various sizes from extra small to double extra large. It’s available in a black edition and a white one. If ever I would be staying somewhere that is really, really cold, this can be an interesting accessory to have, especially when I’m not used to actual cold weather (and I want to protect the ducks).
