Today we can give you an exclusive first look at the exciting new LED jacket by young technical outerwear brand Nemen from Italy. The Nemen L.E.D. Jacket is an experimental project which expresses the brand’s passion for research in textiles development and functionality in sportswear garments. In this very unique take of a reflective jacket, optical fibers are woven within the fabric, thus creating an area which is entirely lit by a system of 12 integrated LEDs powered by two rechargeable lithium batteries (8 hours durability). The outer fabric is a monofilament of nylon and steel with a polyurethane transparent film which, while working as a shield to protect the optical fibers, emphasizes the depth effect created by light passing through it. The inner fabric features a special aluminum coating which reflects body heat in order to ensure maximum protection from cold weather and wind, while the inner membrane insulates the body guaranteeing protection even in extreme weather conditions. The Nemen L.E.D. Jacket stands for state of the art protection in urban and suburban environments, guaranteeing high visibility, maximum protection in harsh weather conditions, and extreme comfort thanks to a meticulous ergonomic study during the development stage of the garment. Due to the complexity of the garment and the endless hours needed to assemble it, the Nemen L.E.D. jacket is manufactured only at the specific request of the customer at a price of $3,000 (2,400 euros). For more information on this unique new garment, please check out the official Nemen website. Here below you can get a further look at the functionality of the jacket. We can safely say that we have never seen this before.
