Made by Osram, the light tubes slide into channels in the garment and will last around seven hours between charges. These tubes can be cut to length, depending on the size of your jacket and are powered by a small external power pack.
The flexibility of the tubes mean they could also be used elsewhere though, such as wrapped around a rucksack or over horse riding kit.
The system costs £69.99 and sits alongside other extras such as a drinks system, available for the Atacama, with the battery pack fitting inside a neat pocket inside. You can see a visual demonstration in the video below:
