One of the biggest bnummers of any sport is the fear of injury from falls and winter sports are no different. Here is a jacket that proposes to act as a protective gear against those accidental slips on the ice, which can be really painful. The design includes an impact chamber filled with water and air that acts as a cushioning. On impact, the air is pushed up the back channel and into the dissipation chamber situated around the jacket’s neck, inflating it. Wear it and show off your stunts, without fear!
Since the neck area gets inflated, it offers a certain degree of whiplash protection and support. It’s a good idea to fill in drinkable water into the chamber; coz once you’re knocked down you may want to replenish yourself with some.
Shaken and stirred!
