There would be a great benefit to owning a Mask Jacket or two in certain parts of the world. Many people in Asia bulk-buy face masks to protect themselves from urban pollution on a daily basis, so why shouldn't this disposable gear be stitched directly into clothing?

From the China Academy of Art and Zhejiang University, a group of designers got together to create a zippered windbreaker that would also block toxic chemicals and dust from being inhaled through the mouth and nose. The Mask Jacket integrates this simple, washable material just inside the high collar, enabling the wearer to easily pull it over his or her face when the conditions are dangerous for one's lungs and general health.
