About this project

Introducing the Parker 

The Parker is an outdoors and water sports garment designed for warmth, moisture management and as a protective barrier. Want to keep warm, dry and your car seats clean? Maybe you are conducting water sports and need an extra layer of thermal protection? You’re at a football ground or outdoors where there are no changing rooms available and you need some privacy? The Parker is perfect for you.

Galliot Clothing Limited have over 30 years’ experience in the garment industry and we pride ourselves on quality products. We work directly with all our factories to ensure the quality and also minimize overheads which pass on cost savings to you the customer.

What makes our product special? 

We spent a long time prototyping our product to ensure we were incorporating features that matter.
The fabrics we choose for the Parker embody the best of both worlds. The outside is a Tri-laminate 100% polyester woven fabric that has been backed with a PTFE coating, this makes it waterproof and windproof. 

The inside is a luxury towel lining that provides superb moisture management & comfort.

The product is ¾ length which provides excellent protection against the wind and rain, it also serves as a privacy cover allowing you to get into your swimwear or wetsuits in locations limited by facilities.

It has raglan sleeves that provide greater flexibility and movement for the arms.

There is a double headed two way zip, that can be undone from the bottom during wear, meaning that when you sit down your legs aren't restricted by the product and you have a full range of movement, this is important when driving.

The top of the zipper has a cover to stop any chaffing against the neck and chin by the zip itself.  

There are two spacious zipped pockets placed for a more casual stance when your hand are in the pockets and provides storage for small valuables and items.
The cuffs are elasticated with button fasteners to minimize wind penetration. 

The hood has been extended so it can protect your whole face from the rain and provide greater warmth. 

Finally we made sure the product is machine washable and won’t lose its performance after washing.

What next? 

We already have the prototypes completed and the factories in place to start producing the product. All we need is your support for funding to get the project off the ground, then we can start shipping internationally providing no hiccups by April 2015. This makes the product an ideal gift for the cold months ahead or the warm ones if you live south of the equator!

What happens when we surpass our target? 

We would love to produce an even better product with more colors and additional features, however we are trying to manage our expectations and stick to the core basics of a great product at a reasonable price with minimum orders in mind.  

Just to give you an idea of what we have in store: inside coat pockets, 3d moulded pullers, bungee cords, vented underarms, specialized bags and more!

Finally 

Thanks for taking the time to check out our campaign and would love to hear any feedback or comments you may have, check out our website here www.galliot-clothing.com for more info.

Risks and challenges

As with any start-up company there are challenges involved with getting our new product off the ground. We need your support to take the Parker from prototype to reality, with the minimum orders we need to send off to the factories.
