Fashion Spotlight: AETHER Apparel Loop Moto Jacket


Designed specifically for urban motorcycle commuters, the Loop integrates protective shock-absorbing pads into a cleanly styled canvas jacket.

Made from the same abrasion-resistant heavy canvas as our Compass motorcycle pants, the Loop offers breathability with a natural fabric feel. For protective padding, we partnered with D3O®, the industry leader in shock-absorbing body armor. D3O® pads are malleable when handled at slow speeds, but tighten upon impact to absorb energy. The Loop comes with elbow and shoulder pads as well as a back pad, all of which are CE-certified and completely removable.

A padded collar adds extra comfort around the neck, while zippered cuffs can be adjusted to accommodate gauntlet or short gloves. Pit zip vents run from the riders waist to elbows allowing cool air to be routed into the jacket. Two front hand pockets, Napoleon chest pocket, and subtly integrated back pocket offer exterior storage, while an interior pocket offers a place to store valuables.

Perfect for commutes or short day rides, the Loop motorcycle jacket is tough enough to take a hit but clean-cut enough to wear to dinner.

The Facebook jacket that gives you a hug with every like

The jacket designed by Melissa Chow syncs with your Facebook account and each time you receive a “like” the vest inflates feeling like a super hug. The Like-A-Hug jacket recreates that warm feeling we used to get when Facebook didn’t exist and liking something meant receiving the comfort of someone’s arms.

like a hug vest

Once you put a post on your Facebook account and a friend clicks “like” a signal is sent to your phone, which then causes the jacket to take effect and inflate. The jacket or vest was designed by MIT student Melissa Chow and on her site she tells us:

“The project was done as an exercise and exploration in shape display. We came up with the concept over a casual conversation about long-distance relationships and the limitations of video chat interfaces like Skype,” she says.

“The concept of telepresence arose, and we toyed with the idea of receiving hugs via wireless technology. The result was Like-A-Hug.”

The idea of merging the virtual world with actual physical interactions is an interesting concept and one, dare we say, we “like”.

While the Like-A-Hug is an interesting art project, it begins to question our attachment to social media and could this actually be commercially viable product. Do we now cling for emotional physical connections through product in our digital media age? Maybe and maybe not, but the invention is a fun look at ways for us to bring friends closer to our own bodily lives.
