Inspiration: flash patterning
Flash patterning allows moths to change from camouflaged to brightly colored in a heartbeat. When threatened, these moths lift up their forewings to reveal brightly colored hindwings. This quick color change surprises predators and gives the moth an extra moment to escape.
The final jacket
The Underwing jacket can quickly transform to meet a hiker’s visibility needs at any time of the year. A system of magnetic flaps on the jacket front and sleeves allow for swift color changes on the go.
