First look: Beacon jacket
A jacket with integrated lights that's designed with performance in mind. You heard it here first!
When we first got our hands on this awesome-looking jacket, we had all the usual reservations: it's bound to be heavy, sweaty, £2k and there won’t be a dedicated women's cut. Wrong on all counts.
The brains behind new brand, Métier, have developed a performance-cut jacket that packs in high-intensity LED lights. It weighs a respectable 360g (with battery and silicon cover). It’s breathable, waterproof, wind-resistant and fully washable, it retails at £250 and it’s available in women’s fit. Win!
Our first date with this jacket was really positive, with the fabric and cut feeling spot on and those stylishly integrated lights eliciting ooooooo's and ahhhhh's from the whole office.
We’ll be bringing you a full Road Test review in the next few weeks, but in the meantime you can see it in action above.
