The ideal jacket for the travelling germaphobe

According to Gravitytank design studio, commuters are endlessly forced to endure a stream of germs around them. Most especially during flu season.

Spying a demand that needed to be met they designed the Germinator Transit Jacket, a handy piece of wearable innovation equipped with such hygienic fittings as a mask to pull over your mouth when your neighbour coughs, sleeves to pull over your hands to avoid touching the handrails and a removable hood so you don’t have to nap on a dirty pain of glass.
