Jacket stores and powers all your gear


The PowearIN2 jacket has a long list of special features for plugged-in people, but here’s the one that immediately got my attention: a channel in the sleeve where you can thread a charging cable to your mobile phone. That goes along with an underarm pocket designed specifically for power banks and another pocket for wireless charging.

“With the rise of mobile technology, two things have become incredibly important: pockets and power,” says Powerin, the people who created the jacket. “After all, we need somewhere to keep all of our cool gadgets, and none of those gadgets are much use when the batteries die.”

The PowearIN2 jacket is designed using a modular concept so owners can incorporate the element that suit their needs and their gear.

It has storage and charging options for tablets, headphones, smart watches and other battery-powered gear with a hub that will charge up to five devices at once.

Other features include a face guard for blocking the wind and a eye hood for snoozing in the airport waiting area. There are also compartments for earbuds, keys, pens and passports.

Power is currently raising money to put the jacket into production with a funding campaign on Kickstarter. The jacket will have a retail price of $229 when it is launched in the fall but early backers can reserve one for at little as $109.

For a closer look at the jacket, visit the campaign page and check out the video below.
