Their Baker Miller Pink Hoodie is the world’s most relaxing piece of technical clothing. Whether your mind is racing the night before an event, you’re counting down the hours to the race start, or you’re ready to collapse with exhaustion on the plane home, this is the ultimate hoodie to zone out in. Engineered to chill you out, it’s designed to improve performance and speed recovery by activating your parasympathetic nervous system. The second is an ultra tough alpine jacket designed to help save your life, that’s been described as “adventure armour” by Discovery. Both products and accompanying experiments are available on their website www.vollebak.com
