KOVR creates some pretty sick spaceman-like jackets that protect your privacy

KOVR´s jackets and bags are made from nickel, copper, and polyester, and block every in- and outgoing signal, making it impossible to access personal information. The jackets include a special front pocket for when you want to be reached by phone.

Made by Leon Baauw and Marcha Schagen.

Available by the end of this year for an expected retail price of 500 euro per jacket.
