glow like kryptonite with vollebak's solar charged jacket

with a ‘glow like kryptonite’, the ‘solar charged jacket’ by vollebak rightfully claims to be the most technologically advanced coat the world has ever seen. it enhances a phoshorescent compound that rapidly absorbs light, stores it, and then re-releases it in the dark. this highly responsive material works so effectively that almost any light source, such as from a phone, torch or car beams, can be used to charge it. solar power works best but after just a few hours of re-energizing, and even on a cloudy day, the jacket can be glowing for up to 12 hours at nighttime.

as well as storing and re-distributing sunlight, vollebak’s ‘solar charged jacket’ is a complete companion for outdoor activities. it aids wearers when hiking, running, riding, camping and climbing, be it during the day or at night. covered in a waterproof membrane, the clothing protects users from rain and heavy headwinds, whilst being extremely lightweight at only 230 kg. from a semi-translucent gray color during day time, the minimalist-designed jacket transforms as the sun sets, turning to a florescent green.
