City life can throw a lot at you, which means you often don’t know what you need to bring when you head out the door. Ukrainian techwear brand Riot Division has addressed the on-the-go urbanite with its Ultimate City Jacket, which automatically transforms based on the wearer’s moment-to-moment needs while also providing plenty of room for storage.

The jacket’s most unique feature is what Riot Division calls its “Parachute System,” a proprietary technology that can automatically adjust the length of the jacket with a simple hand movement. The technology also allows the wearer to adjust the sleeve length as desired for a perfect fit.

“We started working on the Ultimate City Jacket two years ago when we couldn’t find an outerwear that would be specially designed for the city lifestyle,” Riot Division Founders Oleg Moroz and Andrey Titarenko said in a statement.

The jacket also lets you store just about anything one could imagine, boasting more than 10 specially designed pockets for sunglasses, mobile phones, transportation cards and even one pocket big enough to store a tablet. Waterproof fabrics ensure that storing electronics inside won’t be an issue. The jacket also transforms into a tote bag, giving the wearer ultimate flexibility and letting them react to various weather situations as they unfold throughout the day.

Riot Division is launching a Kickstarter campaign for the jacket on September 26. Those who pre-order will receive a discounted price of $139, while retail will start at $199. The jacket comes in two colors (black or white) and is available for both men and women.
