Inspired by the iridescent wings of the Blue Morpho butterfly, this new jacket from Vollebak has over two billion microscopic blue glass spheres embedded in resin on the jacket's surface. The glass spheres create an entirely reflective jacket that is constantly changing color while you ski or snowboard. The Blue Morpho is engineered for a max range of motion with plenty of room for a hoodie underneath. The jacket also is fully seam-sealed, waterproof, and includes an ocean-racing style marine hood and high collar. The visibly stunning piece of outerwear acts like a mirror for whatever light conditions you're in, with a liquid metal appearance under the sun that shifts to a bionic blue at night with any camera flash, torch, or searchlight.
