You can now safely throw away that old bubble suit because the Germinator Jacket has arrived.
There’s now outerwear that can seemingly defend against germs one might find on public transit. With anti-microbial fabric on the cuffs, users can grab onto handrails without any direct contact. The coat also comes with a few concealed pockets for items such as bus passes and mobile devices. And for days when the subway may be a bit too warm, it has ventilation to keep you cool.
This invention may just seem like an easy cash-grab for a company with a buzzworthy idea but truth be told, at $200 its price and aesthetic are highly similar to brands such as North Face and Columbia, except this one’s designed to protect you from getting sick.
