The GAMMA graphene-infused heated jacket is touted as a high-performance heated piece of apparel that is lightweight, breathable, waterproof, durable, and perfect for all seasons. Currently, the GAMMA Jacket is raising funds on Kickstarter and has already amassed over $US 1 million. The manufacturer provides a great deal of information on their new design. Let’s take a look.
Year-round comfort for all climates
GAMMA’s creators claim that the jacket is an excellent choice for everyday use, travel, and even activewear. The jacket is graphene-infused, which is a powerful thermoregulator that is breathable, antibacterial, and waterproof. The GAMMA Jacket also contains a power bank to allow for heat settings that warm the upper body. For those who plan on being out in the sun, the jacket offers complete UV protection to protect your skin from the sun and help keep the jacket cool.
There are many features on the GAMMA Jacket that keep it clean throughout many uses and wears. Graphene is a natural anti-odor and antimicrobial, meaning that this jacket naturally repels odor-causing microbes to help the jacket stay fresh and clean. The GAMMA Jacket is also hypoallergenic, making it resistant to allergens and mites. This feature also makes the jacket suitable and safe for all skin types.
The GAMMA Jacket comes complete with ten pockets, two of which are hidden. The adjustable drawstrings, hood, rain hem, and high neck allow the user to choose the level of coverage needed for their climates and the jacket’s functionality. Graphene is an impermeable material that resists degradation and is waterproof, wind-resistant, and chill-proof. The GAMMA Jacket’s manufacturer claims that these features make the jacket a great addition to any activewear wardrobe – especially for those who partake in outdoor activities such as hiking, jogging, cycling, and other hobbies that are at the mercy of the elements.
The properties of Graphene
The GAMMA Jacket’s most boasted feature is that its fabric is infused with Graphene. This layer of the jacket is incredibly thin but is claimed to be stronger than diamonds. Graphene’s thermal properties adapt to the needs of your body. Because it has a lattice structure, it evenly distributes heat around the wearer’s body while also wicking away moisture. Those wearing the GAMMA Jacket can do so without wearing many additional layers since the jacket keeps you warm or cool depending on the environment that you are in. In addition to thermoregulation, the jacket has three heat settings – 40 degrees Celsius, 50 degrees Celsius, and 60 degrees Celsius.
