‘Stormy Trail’ Jacket Inflates to Cool You Down

Workouts are invigorating, for the most part, but the cool down process can take a long time sometimes. You'd look pretty stupid fanning yourself but I find a lot of people do that when their heart rates are still up and the heat just seems to much to handle.

Cue the upcoming Stormy Trail from North Face jacket, which has a built-in cooling function that inflates to make you more comfortable during your run so you don't overheat at the end of your workout.

The secret lies in the jacket's elasticized cords that are hidden in the front pockets. When the cords are pulled, they tighten and create a 'flow chamber' that allows the air to pass through the jacket while the wearer runs.

It'll be available next July for $165. Wait for it.
