About

One jacket for everything. Based on a dream to own less but better gear we made one jacket, for all travel and all sports. Whether you are skiing in winter, sailing in summer, cycling in spring or running in autumn. This 5-in-1 jacket has got your back.

A 5-in-1 jacket. The One is the outer layer which is extremely breathable and light but at the same time fully water and wind resistant and strong. The One can be combined with two interchangeable zip-in layers. The Hybrid is made for high intensity conditions and The Freeze is made for extreme cold.

Extremely lightweight and packable. We made sure you can pack our jacket in your bag, backpack or duffel bag. And we provide you with a water repellent cover to keep it safe. 

The most innovative jacket ever. You do not want to be limited. Not by your gear. Therefore we have sourced the best materials invented to date, developed for the America’s Cup Sailing Race, The US Special Operations Command and developed by NASA.

Tested and validated by pro athletes. We have tested One Shell with pro athletes who have been world champions or won olympic medals. From mountaineers to skiers and from triathletes to sailors. One Shell is based on their continuous feedback.

The ultimate shell jacket. The One is extremely breathable and light but at the same time fully water and wind resistant and strong. This might very well be the best shell jacket ever. 

The One: Material

Made from the most innovative materials. The One is made of Dyneema®, a material originally developed for the high-tech sails in the America's Cup Sailing Race. It is known as the world’s strongest fiber or the greenest strength (lowest carbon footprint per unit of strength). On the inside of the jacket there is an eVent membrane with a C6 DWR treatment.

The One: Quality

Offering unprecedented qualities. We want you to be able to use The One in every condition and in any circumstance. That's why The One is equipped with extreme performance power.

The One: Features

16 innovative features. After testing with adventurers and professional athletes we have chosen 16 innovative features so The One can perform on the highest level in all conditions.

The One: Comparison

Better price, better performance. We believe we have created a unique shell. But you don't have to take our word for it! Just compare yourself :)

Warmth without sweat. To add warmth for high intensity activities like running, cycling or sailing we have developed The Hybrid using Polartec Alpha® insulation. This layer you can zip-in to The One or wear as a standalone jacket.

The Hybrid: Material 

Made from the most innovative materials. The Hybrid is made with Polartec Alpha® insulation. This is an innovative material developed for the US Special Operations Command for the start stop conditions of combat.

Polartec Alpha® strikes an equal temperature balance by limiting the cold air that enters, while moving excess heat away from the body. The more you move, the harder The Hybrid works to keep your temperature regulated.

If The Hybrid gets wet, it only takes limited time for it to dry up, as the material is incredibly fast drying. This Hybrid can be used with The One or stand alone, depending on what the conditions require.

The face fabric of The Hybrid is made of a two way stretch, lightweight material (60g/m) and has a C0 DWR treatment making it durable water repellent. The side panels are made of spandex for maximal stretchability. 

The Hybrid: Quality & Features 

High quality features. The Hybrid (400g) is made of high quality materials and is produced with an eye for perfection. It has multiple innovative features to allow for great performance.

Extreme warmth for weight. To add extreme warmth for climbing, skiing or hiking we have developed The Freeze. This is an animal friendly down substitution layer featuring Primaloft® Insulation and Plume. This layer you can zip-in to The One or wear as a standalone jacket.

The Freeze: Material 

Made from the most innovative materials. The Freeze is made with Primaloft Gold® Insulation with Cross Core™ Technology and Primaloft Silver® Thermoplume with Cross Core™ technology.

The PrimaLoft® Cross Core™ series fuses multiple PrimaLoft® technologies with aerogel, a structure originally developed by NASA for use in aeronautical applications. Silica aerogel is a highly porous, low-density structure that forms a temperature barrier – locking out cold and heat. Aerogel is composed of more than 95% air and is the lightest solid material known to man.

The face fabric of The Freeze is made of a two way stretch, lightweight  material (60g/m) and has a C0 DWR treatment making it durable water repellent. The bottom hem and the sleeves have a stretch finishing. 

The Freeze: Quality & Features 

High quality features. The Hybrid (525g) is made of high quality materials and is produced with an eye for perfection. It has multiple innovative features to allow for great performance.

Which layer to chose? To help you decide if you need one or both inner layers for your activities please see our comparison.

Tested by professional athletes. We have rigorously tested our jacket with professional athletes in a variety of sports. If you click on the pictures you can see the testing videos!

We bring you One Shell at the lowest possible price by cutting out the distributor and retailer. About 80% of our price is for material, production and shipping costs. Only 20% is for marketing and our margin.

Because we bring you the highest quality by using materials and techniques not used by big outdoor brands, our price may still seem high. But don't forget that you now have one jacket for all your travels and all your sports. And that saves you a ton of money :)

One Shell is produced in Vietnam in the same factory used by big outdoor brands. But what makes One Shell stand out is firstly the use of multiple state of the art manufacturing techniques such as ultrasonic welding and laser cutting. And secondly the fact that we put a lot of care in our products resulting in all jackets essentially being hand made.

We have come a long way, but the best is yet to come :) With 50+ years of experience in manufacturing we are confident that we can deliver in March 2019.

At One Shell, we are adventurers and athletes ourselves. That is why we have made this jacket. Without any compromise in terms of quality. And now we are bringing it to market for you. 

Our team has 50+ years of apparel experience and for many of us this is not the first company we have built. We have experience in design working for big brand and manufacturing producing for big brands.

  • We promise to work with environmental friendly materials;
  • We promise to produce in a eco-friendly and sustainable way;
  • We promise to produce so that you can own less but better gear;

We would like to thank the following people without whom this project would not have been possible.

  • Trip To The Moon Films (Jan, Max, Fergus, Floris, Koen)
  • Photography (Jamie, Lauren)
  • Pro-Atlethes (Kaj, Lasse, Anthon, Seye, Marc, Tobi)
  • Family (David, Rolanda, Willem, Jan, Jan Willem, Renee, Jan, Daan, Julia)
  • INSEAD community (Nicolas, Pablo, Koloina, Sola, Lionel, Julian, Matteo, Ardi, Momo, Mayumi, Camille, Rita, George, Alienor, Faizhan, Gijs, Maarten)
  • All our friends who have supported us (Manus, Roos, JW, Lucas, Mees, Gisbert, Arthur, Pi, Jette, Nien)

Risks and challenges

The designs for the One Shell have been finalised and the samples have been built and tested extensively. In other words, the jacket holds up :)

The most difficult in terms of timing is to predict customs and package arrival times that differ per country. Thats why we have accounted for an additional buffer in our planning for shipment and delivery.

We will give you updates along the way. You can count on that :) We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Kickstarter community for your help in bringing this product to market.

There is no way we can do this without you!!!
