Tommy Hilfiger’s Solar Charging Jackets Are Hideous Yet Practical

 |  |  |  December 6, 2014


I’m sure there is an elegant way to turn a jacket into a garment that collects energy from some source, be it solar, kinetic, auditory or what have you, and dispenses it to your devices.This is not that jacket. This is Tommy Hilfiger’s new plaid and solar panel creation, and it looks like one of Think Geek’s more unfortunate wearables.

The jackets are available on Tommy Hilfiger’s website for $599 (Men’s, Women’s), and while you’ll be out a lot of money and look like a tool if you cop one, you can at least sleep well by knowing that half of the profits ate being donated to the Fresh Air Fund. The Fresh Air Fund is a not-for-profit that helps low-income urban children experience the outdoors by taking them on trips to the countryside.

Regardless, which jacket do you think is less offensive? My vote is for the men’s version.
