Can This Jacket Protect You from Colds and Flu?

Wouldn’t it be ironic if you managed to avoid getting sick in spite of a waiting room full of patients with colds and flu…but then contracted one of those viruses on your daily commute or at a crowded shopping mall?  Sure, you can wash your hands until they’re raw, but sometimes even that isn't enough. Now you can add another layer of protection—literally—by wearing the Germinator Transit Jacket.

The Germinator Transit Jacket

The jacket features silver-infused antimicrobial fabric on fold-out sleeve cuffs and a high collar shield—the latter with a removable and washable liner that helps discreetly protect you from others' germ-laden, airborne droplets. There's also a removable hood, lots of pockets, and interior ventilation. This jacket aims to protect you from autumn cold. . . and colds.

The Germinator Transit Jacket, at least for now, is only available in men's sizes, and only in black. It's currently on sale for $186 (down from an original price of $248) from Betabrand. For more information, or to purchase, visit Betabrand.com.
