Female-led Company LOOMIA Launches A Stylish Women’s Smart Jacket #Wearables
As a verified freeze-baby this jacket appeals to me, Via FashNerd
LOOMIA has spent the past three years developing a soft circuit layer that allows for wire-free heating systems. Using their patented technology, LOOMIA has managed to create a versatile heated jacket that is thin and form-fitting rather than puffy and uncomplimentary. Designed for the woman on the go, the H1 jacket is a self-heating jacket can be worn in the office, on a plane, or under a winter coat.
On their latest innovation, Maddy Maxey told FashNerd Managing Editor Mano ten Napel, “Most heated jackets are designed for men with a smaller women’s version, but research shows that women get cold more easily. We thought this seemed like a great opportunity to put our wire-free soft circuit systems to work to make a slimline jacket that could blend in anywhere”.
The H1 heated jacket has three back heating sections, providing warmth and comfort in any environment. While the LEL can withstand a series of washings, the team recommends hand washing to preserve the layer’s top heat. The included battery pack lasts up to two hours before needing to be recharged and can also charge your phone or other devices. The jacket is controlled with a simple on/off switch. The team chose to make this technology app-less for ease of use (no need to pull out your phone to control the jacket).
