Check out this graphene jacket from Eurobike 2018.
 

“Graphene, a carbon-based material that seems to get imbued with mystical properties, has made its way into a garment by Biemme. Yes, graphene: it’s not just for Vittoria tires. Biemme says graphene can conduct heat throughout the jacket.
 
To keep the heat from dissipating, the company has added an insulating membrane. Since the jacket is a prototype, it will see further testing this coming winter. Biemme has proposed a late 2019 release date for the Graphene jacket.”

“Vollebak also says the graphene layer will equalize your natural body temperature by redistributing heat from warm parts of your body to colder areas. The material disperses any extra humidity, too, and the jacket design itself contains no seams. Its pieces–which are laser-cut to avoid waste–are thermally sealed, instead. If moisture does end up inside, the graphene material will halt any buildup of bacteria since it can’t reproduce on its surface. In addition to being bacteriostatic, the company claims, the graphene layer is “hypoallergenic, anti-static, and certified as nontoxic.”
 
We think graphene’s ability to conduct heat and power and withstand insane forces, while adding zero mass, should make it central to the story. And when clothing can start conducting heat and electricity all sorts of cool things can start happening. It means that over the next decade your clothing can start to become a platform for other innovations. And that’s really what we’re interested in.”
