Fashion designer Pauline van Dogen designed this solar parka specifically with UNESCO heritage site keepers in mind -- Wadden Sea Rangers to be exact. The jacket's long and wide hip pockets act as portable solar panels that are able to charge a smartphone in two hours.

With a heavy recycled denim outer layer, the coat keeps people warm while venturing out into nature. While providing convenience as a portable wearable charger, the solar parka also acts as a safety measure, keeping tour guides or area experts connected in potentially dangerous weather conditions. The electronics are also button-off and waterproof, making the coat perfect outerwear for adventure lovers who are venturing deep into the great outdoors.

Adding to the wide range of wearable technology entering the market, this solar parka is a perfect product for those who spend a great amount of time outdoors but still need to stay connected in this technologically-laden world.
