Japanese biomaterials company Spiber joined forces with The North Face to create a winter jacket made from full-blown scientifically engineered spider silk, which was surely a recipe stolen from Peter Parker. 

The material they developed, thanks to some serious science, is equal to steel in strength and less dense than cotton, which means it could very well be the next big thing in athleticwear.  

Here's a cool look at how it was made and a few clips of the parka in action. It's a pretty spectacualar process.

Can this go from "prototype stage" to "ready for purchase" ASAP, please? The Spider-Man in us all needs to own this.
