Functionality: A reversible and returnable jacket that comes with a duo-color hood and collar, the Icone is a multipurpose jacket that offers so many possibilities of wearing it. It can transform into 20+ different styles. You can wear it inside out. Wear it with the zipper in front and with the zipper at the back.

Attach the bicolor-collar for an elegant look or attach the bi-color hood for a sporty look. You can change the style or color or both and wear it in the direction you want. With the minimalist style and neutral colors, it goes well with all kinds of clothing styles and colors. The design is unisex and this jacket looks good on both men and women.  

Convenience: One jacket you can wear in twenty different ways, the Icone is the ultimate in versatility and convenience. It is a great travel jacket that will enable you to pack light and yet have you covered in all kinds of situations.

It is the perfect travel jacket to take with you when you want to pack light. If you want to carry it with you in unpredictable weather or if it gets too hot while on the go and you have to remove it, it stuffs into its own hood transforming into a shoulder bag. 

Weather Protection and Comfort: The ICone is designed to offer comfort in all kinds of weather conditions. The soft and warm cotton fabric and the hood will keep you warm and cozy when it is chilly and windy. You can add some layers underneath the jacket or wear a winter coat over it in the winter. The breathable fabric and anti-perspiration armpits will ensure you don’t get too hot and sweaty when you’re active or wearing the jacket in warm conditions.

Safety: Intelligent Clothing takes safety seriously. Both the fabric and magnets have undergone and passed stringent tests for harmful substances. They carry the OEKO TEX Standard 100 label for safety. They don’t contain any toxic chemicals and won’t harm your health or that of the environment.

The fabric is 100% cotton and doesn’t contain toxic chemicals. The magnets are made of neodymium-iron-boron and coated to resist corrosion. They are then bonded to the fabric using silicone-based glue. They don’t contain nickel and don’t release gantry.

Magnetic Zipper, Collar, and Hood: Closure is via a magnetic zipper, which is way easier to use than the conventional zipper. All you have to do is bring the two ends together and the magnets will attract each other. Opening it is just as easy – just pull the two ends apart.  

The hood and collar also attach via a magnetic rim that makes them very easy to snap in place or detach and ensures they stay put even in the face of strong wind. They have used extra-strong magnets with an estimated lifespan of 20 years and positioned them optimally for precise alignment. Don’t worry – the magnets are designed not to interfere with the working of other devices such as pacemakers or credit cards and to pass security checks without issue.

Pockets: As a multitasking jacket, the Icone offers pockets when you need them and hides them out of the way when you would rather not have them. It is equipped with pockets on the grey sporty side for storing essentials you need handy when working out, traveling, or exploring the outdoors. When you need it elegant for the office, the black side doesn’t have pockets.

Wash and Care: This cotton jacket is easy to clean. You can machine wash it at 60 degrees. The fabric is strong enough to hold up well with numerous washes. The magnets can also withstand all kinds of washing without losing their properties. The material is also wrinkle-resistant so you don’t have to iron it. It is also safe to iron if you would like to, as long as you use the appropriate temperature and setting.
