smart jacket

Helly Hansen has released a special tech shell jacket designed to automatically adjust to your body heat. Using a fabric called, Phase Change Material, the fabric acts like a thermometer, it uses paraffin to store and release heat when needed the most. Paraffin is used in sheet rock for residential buildings as an insulator – it melts as it absorbs heat and hardens when it cools down, releasing the stored heat internally. The result is a $550 smart jacket that adjusts to your surroundings whether it be the cold water front in the winter or the hot and cramped car on the el.
