What's New, Now

Today in Gear: The Heated Jacket You’ve Always Wanted, the Perfect Keychain Knife and More


February 22, 2018 Briefings By Photo by Ministry of Supply

We’ve made some new adjustments to Today in Gear, including a new publishing time of 4 p.m. in order to capture all the day’s new stories. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


Ministry of Supply Mercury Jacket
Ministry of Supply’s new jacket makes cold-weather layering obsolete. A sleek and highly-intelligent heated jacket, the Mercury has a custom micro-controller system that gathers information like temperature, motion data and whether you feel too hot or cold to learn your temperature preferences to keep you comfortable on your commute. The jacket is also built to handle the elements and is waterproof, windproof and filled with recycled polyester. The smart technology in the jacket takes 90 seconds to heat up and has a dedicated run time of 4.5 hours. Settings are also adjustable via app and voice commands, so you’ll always have the final say in ‘just-right.’
