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.

Massdrop x Naked & Famous 14-Oz Selvage Denim
Looking to upgrade your daily denim? Check out this selvage jean collaboration between Massdrop and Naked & Famous. They've used a custom rope-dyed selvage from Okayama, Japan that has been woven on vintage shuttle looms. The result is a yarn that has waves, bumps and different thicknesses throughout. These are a bit heavier than your typical Levis and they take around 3 to 4 weeks to break in. Like all raw denim, these get better with age and after a few weeks the rigid, durable fabric will produce wear patterns that reflect your own style and use.
Vollebak Graphene Jacket
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.
