DUOKET - Jacket & Bag Transformed in Seconds (Canceled)
No more carrying an extra jacket or bag, only a DUOKET. Everything stays in original pockets without repack. Revolutionary & Stylish!
The Huffington Post - Duoket is the stylish bag that transforms itself into a jacket and is a necessary addition for anyone traveling from cold to hot or vice versa. The duoket is the innovation needed for any packable bag as it maximizes portability by providing two functions. The coolest part? The pockets remain the same between the jacket and bag meaning if you put an item in your bag pocket, it will end up in that same pocket for your jacket. This two in one package deal will for sure be a packable necessity for any travels.
Every time when we are going out, we would trouble what we need to wear, and how to carry all essentials (wallet, keys, mobile phone, iPad, pens, notebook, sunglasses, small electronics, cosmetics… and definitely Tool Pens); we hurriedly grab a bag, move things from A to B to C. In addition, we may also consider taking a jacket or not, in case there's a sudden change in the weather or temperature drop. What a fuss!
Most people are in similar scenarios all the time. Every day we waste 5~10 minutes on such a maddening thing, then we’ll totally lose 2.5 days a year. How dreadful it is!
In order to have a spare jacket, you may carry another heavy-size backpack or duffel bag to stuff it, but in fact, you don't need to take many things with you most of the time. Why did we never see a utilitarian design that combines and offers the functions of both Jacket and Bag?
Now, we have made this dream come true! Let us introduce "Duoket" - a smart & versatile transformer of Jacket and Bag, poised to help you through your daily journey comfortably and fashionably.
Duoket is the world’s first “real” and the most innovative “Jacket + Bag” design. Why do we call it “real”? Because everything you pocket will be stayed in the same position, no matter which one you put in jacket or bag, you don’t need to take out, move, or reorganize anything when making it transformed. (Try to imagine… if you have to leave the driver’s seat first while a car becomes Optimus Prime or Bumblebee, can we recognize it as the real Transformers?)
Making Transformation of Jacket & Bag is simple and easy
Duoket is much more than a travel jacket or a carry-on bag. It comes stocked with plenty of pockets, and our patented structural design especially makes it one of a kind, you'll conveniently switch the functions whenever you need. As becoming a bag, it can be draped over the shoulder, carried like a briefcase to formal meetings, or transformed into a modern sling for zealous cyclists.
Again, the transformation only costs you a few seconds. A perfect Time Saver!
With a right apparel, anything becomes possible. Duoket will simplify the daily pack-and-prep for carrying your essentials in the event of commutes, street walk, outdoor adventures, sport & exercise, or all kinds of leisure outings. It's the right companion to help you navigate through any time and any occasions.
Duoket is made of the lightweight and durable materials (Shell: 100% Polyester ; Lining: 100% Nylon). There are 5 beautifully timeless colors for your selection initially – Black, Cardinal Red, Khaki Brown, Duck Green, Shady Blue. All these 5 colors are coolly understated yet stylish, perfect for either jacket or bag, and fit to everyone’s personalities.
In this project, we partner with a Taiwanese textile manufacturer who has its own production factory specialized in yarn spinning, weaving, dyeing, and finishing. Over more than 20 years, it had supplied OEM/ODM services for many global top brands of sportswear and outdoor apparels. We’ll leverage its advanced technology and well-certified experiences, thus you’ll get a superb-quality Duoket with the same characteristics of luxury jackets.
We are team “mininch” (pronounced by “mini-inch”) that had created and well-fulfilled three Kickstarter projects - Tool Pen, Tool Pen mini, WRENCHit since July, 2014. We love this great community and we always like to present our new ideas to Kickstarters first, thus we can collect and learn some comments or suggestions from all backers directly, which help us keep doing better and make more innovative designs thoughtfully & sophisticatedly.

Risks and challenges
The Duoket is mininch’s 4th Kickstarter project, and we have strongly-proven track records in project management & fulfillment. As demonstrated by prior campaigns, most bakers were highly delighted with our products and services that truly exceeded their expectations.
However, it’s our first time to create a jacket, we realize the production process and complexity are totally different from metal works. Fortunately, we have lined up a well-qualified textile manufacturer with 20+ years experiences of serving 1st-tier international brands. Behind the scenes we also worked meticulously, and had executed 4-runs prototypes to ensure every details are rigorously verified and thoroughly accepted. The R&D time and investments of this project were spent much larger than original estimations. All we want to do is make sure everything will be delivered as what we promise.
We're ready to please you again. Thank you very much for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
