What: No-Contact Jacket
Why: Combing technology and style, this jacket gives a whole new meaning to “fashion forward.”
The No-Contact Jacket was designed to protect women from assailants. When activated by the wearer, the jacket hums with a flowing current of 80,000 volts. Although the woman is protected from the electricity by a rubber barrier, the attacker is shocked upon contact, causing pain and disorientation so that the woman can escape. The jacket is protected from the rain by a Teflon coating and runs on a single 9V battery.
