A new solar powered smart fabric keeps the body warm by generating heat gathered from the sun or artificial light.

A jacket that uses solar power to keep you warm is a real thing. ThermalTech today introduced its patented solar powered smart fabric. Made from stainless steel yarn, the ThermalTech fabric is lightweight and gathers energy from the sun or artificial light to keep the body warm even after the sun has set.

Providing warmth without the bulk found in traditional outerwear apparel, the ThermalTech fabric allows for a lighter and more fashionable look, even when in the cold outdoors.

The company, has launched an Indiegogo campaign for the ThermalTech fabric at to raise funds to bring jackets with the integrated smart fabric technology to market.

ThermalTech’s technology takes a proactive approach to warmth. Whereas most coats and jackets are designed to recycle body heat and slowly warm a person up, the ThermalTech fabric soaks up energy from indoor and outdoor light to bring warmth to the wearer within minutes.

The fabric’s technology generates up to 10°C/18°F of heat gathered from the sun or artificial light in just two minutes, even when it’s cold outside.

"We believe that by introducing this solar-absorbing fabric into the apparel marketplace, the next generation of outerwear will provide the consumer with even more of an optimal temperature & fit,” said Carlos Cortes, CEO of ThermalTech. “This will allow everyone from the snowboarder to the fashionista to be warmer in colder climates."

The first use of this fabric will be a jacket available in three different styles for both men and women for use in a variety of outdoor activities - Street is fashion inspired, offered in dark blue and green; Explorer is designed for casual, every day use and comes in light blue and red and Extreme is intended for outdoor sports and consumers have the choice of black or gray.

The Extreme and Explorer styles are perfect for staying warm in any outdoor setting or situation; from snowboarding to commuting to work in the winter.

People hitting the slopes will be able to say goodbye to two to three pounds of weight and bulk without sacrificing warmth. The Street jacket allows even the most discerning fashionista to keep warm without compromising their style.

A limited number Early Bird specials of 50% off MSRP (on all jackets) will be available for purchase. Find out more about the ThermalTech on Indiegogo. Jackets start at $139 plus shipping.
