The Germinator is a jacket that helps ward away the germs and parasites that clog that subway you take to work everyday. Commuting to work is stressful enough because of the crowds, people stepping on your foot and the general annoyance of being underground in a tube for long periods of time -- but the presence of germs makes it even more lethal.

The Germinator jacket is fitted with removable cuffs made from an anti-microbial fabric called X-STATIC -- this lets you hold onto rails and poles without picking up germs.

While constantly wearing a jacket in the subway may seem like a recipe for heatstroke, that won't be an issue with the Germinator because it comes with vented pockets that let you cool down without removing your microbe-mauling Kevlar.

The jacket also has a chest pocket for easy access to your phone and a sleeve pocket for your transit pass so you never have to fumble. At $200, this jacket may be well worth the outlay as it lets you stay healthier and more stylish than your fellow commuters.
