The Electro Amp Jacket from Columbia integrates technology to enhances the overall function of the winter coat. The jacket has carbon-fiber threads woven in, that with a touch of a button begins to warm up the jacket. One of the coolest aspects of this high-tech piece is that it can be charged via USB connection.

The carbon fiber used in the Electro Amp Jacket is said to feel like yarn so that it's still a comfy coat. At its lowest setting, the heat can last for up to five hours straight before the batteries completely run out. I never would have imagined a USB charged jacket would ever hit the streets.
