Srinagar: A jacket fitted with an electric
heating system, designed by a Kashmiri engineer to keep
bikers warm during their ride in cold weather, was today
showcased here.

Anjum Khurshid, a 25-year-old engineer from National
Institute of Technology, Srinagar designed the jacket `Jethot`
which has an electric heating system that would be attached to
the battery of the vehicle through a port which powers the
system.

"Jethot is a new-age jacket which will change the
entire concept of bike riding and driving in areas where
winters are harsh," Anjum said.

It took one year for the engineer to complete the low-cost
jacket, whose power consumption ranges from 20-30 watts and
has a natural temperature regulation system.
