Graphene is one of the most indestructible and incredible materials known to man; in fact it was actually discovered by Nobel Prize winners in 2010 so you know this is a legit material. Vollebak has taken this fabric and created a ten layer composite that is touted as being more bulletproof than steel and used it to coat their jackets for this upcoming experimental prototype. Each jacket - which comes exclusively in a black Graphene - is one part coat, one part science experiment and one part beta testing of one of the most exciting fabrics being used in menswear. The jacket will launch in the summer of 2018 and the waiting list is currently open on Vollebak's website.

Vollebak Solar Charged Jacket
Wired named this as the Sports Gear of the Year in 2017 and we can definitely see why. Vollebak's Solar Charged Jacket is crafted from a highly responsive material that can be made to glow and light up in the dark by drawing on it with a light source. You can use your iPhone torch or a flashlight to create designs on the surface that will glow like kryptonite as soon as you take it into the dark. Aside from this, the jacket performs great as a real world insulator and is waterproof, stretchy, highly breatheable and super comfortable to the touch. A little pricey at $350, this is a one of a kind piece that will sure to turn heads.
