To get the Graphene Jacket from Vollebak, you’ll need to get on the waiting list quick. That’s due, at least in part because it’s made of the only material on the planet to win a Nobel Prize. This hooded zip-front jacket is made of graphene, which is invisible and only a single atom thick. Just 10 layers of it stacked together are more bulletproof than steel. It’s so strong and stretchy that the fibers of a spider web coated in graphene could catch a falling plane. It looks pretty sick, too. Get on that list.
