For this revolutionary jacket for wheelchair users we rolled the extra mile. The QT Jacket is developed with the help of our ambassadors and quad- and tetraplegics. Together we came up with the 50/50 fit. The ideal wheelchair clothing solution to take care of the ‘belly’ and ensure a good fit around the shoulders.
The outer shell of the wheelchair jacket is made of GEO TECH Storm 3Layer fabric, which is: breathable, windproof and waterproof.
The insulation is guaranteed by Primaloft® Gold ECO insulation, this is known as the absolute epiphany of insulation, there is simply no better option. A bit more on the chest and shoulders and a bit less on the lower back (backrest) and arms (for good range of motion).
The zip we used is a Magzip® • Magnetic base allows for easy starting and single handed use • Minimum dexterity required to close the zipper • Zipper base holds together and meets all industry standards • Easy and natural feel when unzipping
Most important features of this item of wheelchair clothing:
50/50 Fit: The fit accounts for the space needed for the belly the 50/50 fit takes out all the excess material that so often comes with choosing a ‘non seated’ jacket design. Choose your size to fit your shoulders, there will be room for the belly.
12-degree angle on the collar: to fit the position of the neck and head when seated.
‘Rule of Thumb’ wrist closures. Finally, a good looking and functional wrist closure!
Shorter in the front: No more bulky look, designed to sit.
Center Pockets: More ease of use.
Two inner pockets left and right
Magnetic closures on storm flap
Silicon grip on the lower back, prevents the jacket from riding up.
