About

What is AiryVest?

AiryVest is the lightest dog vest in the world (weighs from 1,6 oz). It's warm, reversible, functional and stylish.

The Story

AiryVest's story began last year. The idea grew out of Helen's personal frustration of not being able to find a lightweight and warm dog apparel suited for an active urban lifestyle of her beloved dog.  

The frustration tranformed into a true inspiration. She began experimenting with different types of ultra light nylon. The material's distinctive properties gave her the creative impulse to sew the first AiryVest jacket prototype.

Minimalist, modern design was inspired by sports style combining aesthetics and functionality. After many drawings we created a durable product with a beautiful silhouette, exceeding even our expectations of not compromising on any aspect of the apparel.

Since then we’ve become more proficient, but no less enthusiastic, in creating simple and innovative things.

The Design & Features 

AiryVest teaches dogs to enjoy clothes 

From our own rich experience of dog owners, we know that some dogs are totally against wearing clothes. While working on AiryVest design we consulted with dog behaviorists and veterinarians in order to solve this problem.

Dogs are more likely to tolerate clothes if they are taught from puppyhood that it’s simply a part of life. But if your dog missed early puppyhood training, it may be really hard to train him to be accustomed to moving around with some clothes on. Hard. But not too late.

Due to its minimalistic design AiryVest creates a positive association. It doesn’t cover the back legs and tummy and eliminates the need to put the outfit on over your dog’s head, which can be frightening to some pups.

Eventually, your dog will not only tolerate wearing clothes, but will actually enjoy it.

The Deal 

If you were to buy our apparel at a fancy pet store, it would cost more than $40+ per item (smallest sizes). We are cutting out all the middle-men and retail markup, and offering them directly to you at the wholesale price starting at $20 (for our early supporters)!   

However, in order to offer this value, we do have to meet a large minimum order from our factory partners. Your contributions are critical to making this Kickstarter campaign and our product a reality!

A fresh mix of color and style will appeal even to those of dog owners who typically prefer functional gear. AiryVest apparel provides a great combination of fun and function so dogs can be fashionable while keeping warm. 

We want our pets to be with us all the time and having pet clothing that matches our own style.

Color combinations so far include Black & Blue, Blue & Lime, Lime & Orange.

In spite of its ultra small weight, the vest provides an effective, durable and breathable wind barrier and adds appreciable warmth on morning walks.  

Perfect for cold springs, chilly autumns and mild winters.

AiryVest is water-resistant and filled with synthetic insulation sandwiched inside of ultra-lightweight nylon fabric that is DWR-treated to shed light moisture.  

Synthetic insulation is designed to replicate the qualities of down, but retain them even when wet. It’s made with polyester fibers that are arranged in different sized filaments and intertwined, mimicking down’s lofty clusters. These ultrafine fibers trap warmth in air pockets, providing truly great warmth. Synthetic insulation also tends to be naturally hypoallergenic.

Reversible design doubles your style options. Contrasting colorways give you two distinctive vests for the price of one.

The AiryVest is a high-visibility dog wear that extends adventure into low-light conditions. The vibrant fabric (blue, lime, orange) is ultra visible and features an integrated reflective logo to enhance the visibility.

  • Put AiryVest on the dog's shoulders.

  • Find one of the leg holes and put your dog's paw through that hole. Do the step again on the other paw.

  • Fasten the zipper from the top.

AiryVest silhouette is perfectly suited for dogs of almost all breeds. Whether you need a slim fit or a little more room to layer, simply review the detailed sizing guide below and select the size that best fits your beloved doggy.  

There are a few steps to follow to ensure the clothes properly fit.
There are a few steps to follow to ensure the clothes properly fit.
  • A - BACK LENGTH. Use a cloth tape measure along your dog’s body starting at the neck where the collar would sit naturally on your dog’s back, allow the tape measure to lay along the natural curves of your dog’s body, and start at the neck where his collar is, and measure to the beginning of his tail (not the tip).

  • B - CHEST. For midsection circumference measure your dog’s midsection at rib cage.

  • C - NECK. For the neck circumference measure around the neck at base of collar.

*We will be in touch to take your size selections and color preference at the end of the campaign and work our magic. 

We went through countless rounds of sketches and prototypes to rigorously refine and push the design to its optimum. This includes optimizing our product that now allows any dog feel ultra comfortable!  

We have come a long way from our first sketch, and we now have a truly great final prototype.

We have proved that we can achieve what we designed, and our next step is to optimize our manufacturing plan so that everyone can have a chance to experience AiryVest!  

Risks and challenges

We have an extensive experience developing pet products and taking them to the market.

We know how to get the job done and know how to do it right. So you can sleep well at night knowing that your AiryVest will be totally great! We have done our homework, so the risks are minimal. We are also partnered with the best manufacturers in the industry. Our production lines are scheduled and we have priority on the line.

Throughout the entirety of the project we will monitor how much material (fabric, zippers, etc.) we need to purchase in order to fulfill the orders.

We are going to start shipping in January (for early birds). Your doggy will be able to wear the AiryVest this season. What you are seeing in our videos and pictures are prototypes. The final products will be even better!

Being very responsive to any issues that might arise, we guarantee real support to our backers. We will communicate with you and answer any questions. In case of any unforeseen delay, we will notify backers immediately. In any case, be sure you`ll receive your order.

Please feel to reach out to us if you have any concerns and leave a message on Kickstarter for us. Thanks for your support!
