#gravitytank is an innovation firm that wants to take the ick out of commuting.

We’re a bunch of designers, researchers, strategists, dreamers and thinkers at gravitytank, an innovation firm. But most of all, we’re like you, commuters. Whether you take the muni, subway, el, bart, or just the good old train or bus, we knew there had to be a more comfortable, convenient, and less gross way to commute.

Last year, we researched germs, shadowed commuters, and interviewed experts to find a way to make the everyday commute healthier and less gross. This jacket is one result of Project Transfer. We hope that you’ll help us make this jacket a reality.
