Vollebak is a company that prides itself on creating “Clothes for the future.” The Vollebak Martian Aerogel Jacket is so futuristic, its materials have already been to Mars.
Vollebak designed this state-of-the-art jacket to be unmatched in durability, flexibility, style, and functionality. The jacket’s interior insulation material is partly aerogel, constructed by the same lab currently making the next Mars Rover’s aerogel heat shield.
This new aerogel and organic foam insulation features hundreds of laser-drilled micropores that result in a rugged, flexible, insulating, and waterproof material. It’s drastically thinner and more lightweight than traditional down insulation. It can also be soaked in water and continue providing insulation and warmth. A volunteer tested the jacket while sitting still in a room cooled to -4 degrees Fahrenheit. Their core temperature remained stable despite the jacket’s ultra-thin, lightweight construction.
The Vollebak Martian Aerogel’s outer shell is also from a fabric that’s been to Mars. The fabric is an ultra-tough parachute material that also helped land the most recent Rover on Mars. The shell adds to the jacket’s otherworldly appeal with a metallic appearance and transparency that showcases the aerogel technology inside.
The Vollebak Martian Aerogel Jacket isn’t just a talking piece. Although, anyone wearing it is sure to receive comments on its futuristic yet chic appearance. It’s a technical piece of outerwear designed to keep people warm, dry, and comfortable without bulk or weight. Five zipped pockets, a two-way front zipper, and a cozy aerogel hood also make this a highly functional piece for even the most rugged winter activities. Interested buyers can join the waiting list for the Martian Aerogel Jacket on the Vollebak website now.
