The original Adv3nture Jacket was the MOST SUCCESSFUL Fashion Kickstarter EVER, and we're back with FOUR amazing jackets!
Adv3nture is made up of amazing people with experience in premium apparel and technical product design. We pride ourselves on making on the BEST garments in the HIGHEST QUALITY with no gimmicks. We only integrate features and innovations that are actually useful. (OK, and a bottle opener for "Beverage Emergencies")
The Incredible ADV3NTURE JACKETS!
Built to make traveling more enjoyable, but so comfortable, you'll want to wear them every day. Our everyday travel hoodie, tactical full-zip fleece, waterproof windbreaker and performance parka all have amazing innovations, are premium quality, but our BASE LAYERS integrate into our OUTER LAYERS.
When traveling, it's tough to be able to pick two or three jackets that will work in any weather you'll experience in your travels. That's why our garments work with each other. When you combine them, you get the benefits of both!
For example: The hoodie is great for the plane. The windbreaker is great for a rainy day. But what if it gets unexpectedly cold and rainy? No problem! Zip the hoodie into the windbreaker for an insulated, waterproof jacket.
HOW DO YOU GET THEM?
Choose a reward to become a backer of this project. It's that easy!
You will essentially be pre-ordering one of our jackets. By getting your jackets here, you'll get a special backer discount, and you'll receive your apparel before it is available in stores.
After the campaign, you will be sent a survey, where you will tell us the style(s), size(s) and color(s) that you would like, as well as your shipping info. At that point, you will also be able to add onto your order. It will all make sense when you get your emailed survey! Just make sure the email address associated with your Kickstarter is one you check often.
Still, still confused? The only bad questions are the ones you don't ask! Email us!
Like our amazing Adv3nture Hoodie, that was backed by over 13,000 people here on Kickstarter, our new Voyageurs Hoodie and all of our Adv3nture Jackets are loaded with incredible innovations and plenty of features that you'll love every day. Our premium garments are meticulously designed and manufactured to ensure that they are durable and comfortable and enhance your journey, whether you're traveling around the corner or around the world. Your Adv3nture Jackets are perfect for any season, and will be the perfect companion on your trip. But, they are destined to be your go-to jackets for every day use.
One of our coolest innovations is the pillow conversion. Adv3nture created the first hoodie/jacket to covert into pillows, and we are very excited about our new-and-improved pillow conversion.
All of our hoodie and jackets convert into pillows in the same way-- with a microfleece-lined inside pocket, that turns into a microfleece pillow. Watch this video to see how easy it is to convert our Glacier Parka into a full-sized travel pillow. Imagine using your Adv3nture pillow on a flight, as a passenger in a car, or staring up at the stars! It's SO comfortable!
Previously known by over 13,000 backers as the Adv3nture Hoodie, the evolved Voyageurs Hoodie still offers 23+ pockets and features along with our updated quality of fabric, overlock stitching, zippers, pillow conversion, and an updated beverage opener. The Voyageurs Hoodie is the world's most comfortable and versatile hoodie. It was designed to travel, but is destined to be your favorite everyday hoodie. It easily zips and secures into the Wind Cave Windbreaker and the Glacier Parka.
Here's a close-up of some of the features and construction. The Voyageurs Hoodie is built for comfort, functionality and durability.
Named for Badlands National Park, this is a sophisticated full-zip fleece jacket. With many of the same features of the Voyageurs Hoodie, it zips and secures into the Wind Cave Windbreaker and the Glacier Parka.
The Badlands Fleece offers you a stylish and functional option wherever where your plans take you. Strategically placed quilted patches offer abrasion resistance on shoulders for backpack straps, and elbow for commuting and working at your desk.
WIND CAVE WINDBREAKER
The Wind Cave Windbreaker is a waterproof shell that had taped seams and waterproof zippers. Either of the inner layers zip and secure into the windbreaker, making it waterproof and warm.
The Glacier Parka is a premium winter jacket with 10 pockets and a faux fur collar. It's perfect for winter hikes, walking around the city, and it's durable enough for hitting the slopes. With either of the inner layers zipped in, it is rated to sub-zero temperatures.
THE OVER 23 FEATURES
Each of our inner and outer layers comes with a bevy of incredible features. The objective was to make something that looked great, where the innovations where seamlessly integrated into the garment, so it also looked great.
All of our garments come with built-in "emergency" bottle openers. They are clipped into the passport pocket, but can also be clipped into the paracord in the side pockets.
WE PLANT THREE TREES
With every purchase of an Adv3nture product, we plant three trees. We have created a tree program whereby we plant three indigenous trees in areas of the US that have been affected by forest fires and deforestation. We work with arborists and environmental scientists to ensure that the trees that we're planting are the best for the location that we'll be planting. Every product backed in this campaign will have three trees planted in the US.
We want to encourage people to get outside, and disconnect from the digital world so they can reconnect with the natural world. We're as passionate about the environment as we are with making the best possible products. So, we have named our garments after US National Parks. Our Voyageur (French for Traveler) Hoodie is named for the national park in northern Minnesota. The Badlands Fleece is in honor of one of South Dakota national parks. The Wind Cave Rainbreaker is named after one of the longest caves in the world, also located in South Dakota. The Glacier Parka is named for Montana's northern most national park where the temperature often dip far below zero.
ZANE LAMPREY is the founder of Adv3nture. He has spent more than a decade as the host of of travel shows on National Geographic Channel, Travel Channel & Food Network. He used his design degree to created original garments, beginning with the Drinking Jacket (a hoodie with various features) including the first beverage pocket and bottle opener zipper in 2012. Desiring to create the world’s best traveling companion, he released the Adv3nture Hoodie in 2016, which became the most successful fashion Kickstarter ever. With the success of the Kickstarter, Zane formed Adv3nture, LLC and surrounded himself with talented people to help grow the Adv3nture brand.
While traveling the world, Zane saw things that solidified his concern for the world’s natural habitats. Living in California, among extreme droughts, monumental forest fires and occasional deluges of rain, Zane has also become acutely aware of detrimental environment conditions impacting communities. With a deep appreciation for nature and the environment, Zane devised a plan where the Adv3nture brand would produce premium quality garments while also bringing attention to the environment and giving back to the planet with a tree initiative. So, for every Adv3nture product sold, three trees will be planted.
MEL LAMPREY was a television producer on one of Zane’s television shows. This unexpected meeting allowed/forced them to travel extensively together throughout the world and to experience the goods and the bads that come with such an opportunity. Mel brought her passion for the outdoors, and for the endangered environment into this relationship. A long-time hiker, world traveler, and National Park lover (self-admitted, obsessive), their marriage combined their mutual enthusiasm for the natural world with their passion to create and inspire. The Adv3nture brand is the result of 8 years of travel and exploration experiences, and their desire to improve the planet’s health. Mel is committed to “fix our shit,” as she all too often, and somewhat inappropriately likes to say. Other passions include; animals, indigenous and domestic rescue, food, and her twin sister.
ERICA ELSTRO is a Michigan native who was raised with a natural love for the outdoors and all seasons. After moving to LA, she began working in the apparel industry, specifically concentrating on products and garments known for exceptional quality and function; and with companies willing to give back to the Earth. The passion and skills she developed there led to a seamless transition towards the Adv3nture brand. Erica is a world traveler, always willing to explore the unknown, and seeking to fulfill her best life with her husband and family while giving back to her community. A secondary passion of hers is doughnuts, which she is no longer allowed to bring to the Adv3nture office, no matter how fancied up they are.
HESS WESLEY is no stranger to adventure. At seven years old, he and his family relocated from his native country of Haiti to the United States in search of the opportunities that some might take for granted. This “American” opportunity, plus the hard work, high moral standards, and respect instilled in him by his preacher father led him successfully through college, collegiate sports, and on into his career as creative director in the burgeoning era of start-up era businesses. Hess landed at Adv3nture when looking for a new project that combined his desire to positively affect the planet with his experience in fashion and business. When not out experiencing life, Hess can be found in the office, eating truffle Mac-n-Cheese and a cat on his lap after a hard CrossFit workout.
We've set some "stretch goals" for our campaign. When we hit certain milestones, we will unlock new colors of our apparel. So, when we reach $250K in pledges, we will unlock the "Triple Black" Voyageurs Hoodie, which is a black hoodie with black buttons and accessories. At $500K, we'll unlock a "Triple Black" non-camp Wind Cave Windbreaker. And at $1M, we will unlock a Navy Glacier Parka for Women and an Olive Glacier Parka for Men.
To best way to determine your sizing in Adv3nture apparel, we recommend laying your favorite hoodie, fleece or jacket on a table to compare the measurements with ours. This will help to ensure the best fit. Our inner layers (hoodie & parka) will zip into the outer layers (windbreaker & parka) of the same size. Below is a chart showing the measurements for our garments and an image to show how to take the same measurements on your garment.
The Adv3nture Jacket System was designed to enable you to get a wide range of coverage from a minimal amount of apparel. So, when you are packing for a weekend getaway or a long voyage, you can pack light, and stay warm and dry.
Risks and challenges
In 2016, we launched the Adv3nture Hoodie, which went on to become the most successful Kickstarter fashion campaign ever. That 2016 campaign built the Adv3nture brand. Starting out with just it’s founder, Zane Lamprey, Adv3nture is now a mulit-faceted company made up of amazing people with experience in premium apparel and technical product design. It’s a company that has evolved tremendously over the past two years, and only intends to continue to grow and improve. This year has been especially exciting with the long-awaited launch our tree planting initiative. Three trees are planted for each item purchased!
We have forged new relationships with manufacturers since our last campaign and are confident that we have partnered with the best manufacturers in the industry. We have spent countless hours with our manufacturers to ensure that quality and durability are paramount in the production of our garments. We are also working with new shipping solutions to ensure that your products get to you as quickly and reliably as possible.
We spoke with thousands of our original backers and have gotten invaluable insight that we have taken to heart. We have redesigned our hoodie from the ground up, and have improved it in every conceivable way, making sure it is a garment that will last. We have taken that same approach and care with all of our apparel, to ensure that our products are the finest that you will find anywhere.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
