Life Tech Jacket | By Kolon Sport

Design Studio Seymourpowell have designed a new smart jacket for extreme environments called Life Tech, for outdoor sportswear brand Kolon Sport. Seymourpowell faced the challenge of designing a jacket for the most extreme environments with functional elements that would be able to save lives in the harshest of conditions, they worked closely with extreme survival experts, mountaineers and ski guides gathering invaluable insights that have been used to create genuinely innovative and lifesaving features. Technological features of the jacket include a tri-layered waterproof and windproof system and a wearable first-aid and survival kit. Other details include: oversized zip pulls for use with gloves, easy access shoulder and back straps for manhandling a companion in distress, and a wind turbine mounted onto the sleeve of the jacket can be angled to generate power throughout the day whilst the wearer is on the move, you can then charge devices such as GPS & smartphones for essential navigation and communication. A built-in Heatex system provides up to seven hours of heat up to a temperature of 40-50ºC.
