Xiaomi is known for its affordable smartphones, but lately the company has been launching many Internet of Things (IoT) devices. After launching the Mi Washing Machine, the Mi Robot Vacuum recently, and introducing the Super Filter Kettle L1 under crowdfunding, Xiaomi’s latest product is an ultra-light jacket, called ’90 Minutes’. The 90 Minutes jacket comes with a windproof and water repulsive outer coating, and the inner-padding is made up of DuPont Teflon fabric that helps maintain the body temperature.

The jacket is manufactured by wearable brand 90 Points, and can be used by both men and women. The 90 Minutes Jacket is available for 229 Yuan, which is approximately Rs 2,200 via the Mi crowdfunding platform, GizmoChina reports. The 90 Minutes jacket is also available for registration on mi.com, but the company says that shipments would only start from October 18 in China. As is the case with Xiaomi’s Mi ecosystem products, there is no word on whether the 90 Minutes jacket would be introduced in other markets like India.

Xaiomi says that it has made sure that the jacket has been manufactured using high-quality materials. Another interesting aspect of the jacket is the unique YKK zipper, which the company says can be used to hold your headphone cable. The 90 Minutes jacket comes in different sizes ranging from small (S), medium (M), large (L), extra large (XL), and extra-extra large (XXL) for male, whereas, only small (S), medium (M), large (L) and extra large (XL) sizes are available for females. Men can choose from colors like black, bright gray, dark blue and military green, while women can choose from black, light gray and rose red colors.
Unlike some of the smart products in Xiaomi’s ecosystem, the 90 Minutes jacket doesn’t really have any smart capabilities. But coupled with the Mi Umbrella, Xiaomi only seems to want its users to look good during rains. Recently though, Xiaomi did introduce the Super Filter Kettle L1 on its Mi crowdfunding platform, which does come with smart capabilities. The $38 kettle purifies water and can be controlled via Xiaomi’s Mi Home app.
Recently, Xiaomi had launched a screwdriver, called Wowstick, which comes with a built-in LED to help users look at the screws in dark, and a removable battery that offers up to 8 hours of continuous work or up to 180 days of standby. Xiaomi’s growing Mi ecosystem includes products like drones, air purifiers, and washing machine among others.
