Now how convenient is that? You're wearing your favorite jacket, only to find out that, not only does it protect you from the inclement weather, but also has the ability to connect to your devices and maybe even charging them. The future of clothing may be happening right now.

The Radiance Jacket
This regular looking bomber jacket is packing some great power. It's packed with enough gear to heat up your body and also charge your devices at the same time. Your devices are kept accessible thru the front pockets and connects thru an USB port. Very clever design.

Emenegildo Zegna's Solar Jacket
This is another example of solar harvesting piece of clothing. This one packs enough style so you won't look like an 80's Cyborg. You can charge your small devices with the USB connector in the pockets and while charging may take a while, you will be in style with this great looking garment.

Another great design from the Zegna's portfolio is the Sport iJacket, that features iPod controls on your forearm.

Solar Powered Cargo Pants
We know that these pants look like they came straight from an MC Hammer Video, but these are solar powered cargo pants, have USB connection and can provide operating energy thru the solar panels on each side. It automatically adjusts the heat generated by the sun, into power that can be stored for later use or to immediate power up your devices. They look more like pajamas but at least the technology is showing some progress.
