Last month, New York unveiled the world’s first outdoor wear made from synthetic spider silk at a press event held at The North Face store on Fifth Avenue. It’s aptly named the Moon Parka and is being dubbed as a novelty item that’s the first of its kind in the world, being that it’s made from synthetic spider silk.
Very cool! We are likely to see the Moon Parka next year. There is a small catch. We do not know yet exactly how it will perform. But assuming that synthetic silk can be stronger and lighter than kevlar. there is potential here.
