That is an outdoor gear company I had never heard of. But even their non-graphine shirts range in price from $290 - $345.

I'm going to hold off on this one until I see the review from Critter.

Maybe I'm being a bit fussy, but for $695.00 I think they could do better than 370 grams (13.0514 ounces), and there's no mention of any provision for securing the pockets closed.

The hood is a deal-killer. Gotta lose the hood.  down.gif

Graphene can self-repair holes in its sheets, when exposed to molecules containing carbon, such as hydrocarbons. Bombarded with pure carbon atoms, the atoms perfectly align into hexagons, completely filling the holes.

Guess it's the last jacket you will ever need to buy - any punctures can repaired by dousing yourself in gasoline.

Graphene makes LiPo chemistry batteries really sweet, but this jacket for this money looks like a status signal.

And if the cost stresses you out they have a "portable sensory isolation tank" hoodie for chilling out.
