Gadget Clothing, what next!
There’s a first for everything and this is probably the first time we’ve reported on a piece of gadget clothing. It’s known as a PAN (Personal Area Network).
So what makes this vest better than all the other (much cheaper) vests available from any department store. Well for starters it’s got a version number (how ‘sad’/cool is that) and is up to version 4.0 which means all early bugs should now be ironed out and it boosts 29 hidden pockets to lose your keys in (my favourite cargo pants have 12 pockest and I thought that was impressive).
I did like the way ThinkGeek described it so here goes:
Version 4.0 Features
- 2 way front zipper
- Additional ZIP-PIP
- Magnetic Pocket Closures
- SeV Solar Panel compatibility
- Microfleece chin guard
- Microfleece pocket lining
- Ability to accomodate a Camelbak®.
This is the first time I’ve heard of a Camelbak so expect a future post to cover those cool looking devices and I do like the originiality of magnetic pocket closures (rather than the boring zip).
So if you want to make a fashion statement (or fashion anti statement), you can get a few further details and even buy one at ThinkGeek.com. If you encounter problems of tears with version 4.0 you can also remedy it with a patch :)(sorry).
