Zegna’s Solar Powered Jacket

Ermenegildo Zegna’s Solar-Powered JacketErmenegildo Zegna is launching a new jacket with two two-inch-by-three-inch solar panels embedded in the removable Nehru-style collar. The panels are wired to a battery in the breast pocket which is the size of a deck of cards: with four hours’ worth of sun, the battery can be used to charge five- and six-volt appliances like cell phones and iPods. The jacket is slated to hit stores in November. In the meantime, you can read about the experience of a New Yorker who tested the prototype after the jump.
