Bringing Kickstarter the Ultimate Excursion Jacket & The Comfy 2

We brought Kickstarter our first performance jacket with style back in 2014, we  raised over $82,000 and were one of Kickstarter's top 10 campaigns for their first year in Canada. Thanks to you, the backers and Kickstarter, a small company like ours is here competing against outdoor companies that are half a billion dollars in business. We are beginning to emerge thanks to your support. Each time we develop a new product, it drains our resources. We have minimum production to deal with and an early production deposit. You have truly kickstarted our business.

The Ella (Comfy 2) & The Coast (Ultimate Excursion Jacket)

Sweet Clothing is a small company that designs and produces the brand names Mia Melon and One Man Outerwear. Our niche is multi-use weatherproof fashion outerwear. We find that there is very little options to have a fashionable "city look" when the weather conditions are poor. We are committed to fashion and stay away from large, sporty and intrusive branding. Our product is great for students, soccer moms and dads that want to watch their kids play soccer in the rain or snow, minimalists, people that like to travel to other places, commuters, and so forth. We are in a very capital intensive industry with a niche group of products that serve our customers very well. However, the more we grow, the more it costs to stay competitive. To keep the costs down for affordability reasons, we need to make hundreds at time. We hope that one day, one of these campaigns will not only support the project we are trying to finance, but maybe help finance the company so it can function more smoothly and keep innovating. Thank you in advance for supporting our campaign as we feel the new excursion jacket is amazing and could be the most practical jacket to take on your trip or hiker. For those that have backed previous campaigns, we thank you from the  bottom of our hearts, because you are the reason why we are in business and are starting to thrive.

We bring you the Excursion jackets. As we get feedback and images from our travel club, we know there is a need for us to make a supped up Mia Melon and OMO jacket. We have developed a new fabric that is really soft to touch, doesn't wrinkle easy when packed, has taped seams and a 10K/5K membrane with a DWR treatment. On the outside of the sueded cotton fabric is a special heat treatment known as a DWR (Durable Water Resistance) which is our first defense against mother nature. This treatment allows the water to bead off.

We have been told that when you go on an excursion, you could use another pocket, so you don't need to bring your purse or bag along with you when on your favorite trail or out traveling the world. We are introducing the revolutionary "purse pocket" This miniature purse is large enough to hold your essentials such as cash, credit cards, passport, lipstick and make up. It snaps conveniently into the inside of your jacket and remains hidden and secure. Leave your purse or bag in the trunk of your car, hotel room or house and only bring  what you need on your excursion.

The jackets do a have a breathable membrane but in addition we have also added strategic zip venting.

It's great if you are a minimalist and don't like big bulky parkas. Stunning and flattering to wear.




The Comfy 2

We brought you the Comfy through a previous Kickstarter campaign. This is a new extra-soft version with a teddy faux-fur lining instead of the mesh lining from the previous design.It has our standard membrane that is wind and waterproof and also has a DWR treatment. Compared to the Excursion jackets, it is more of a casual, laid back performance jacket that doesn't have the travel features but it incredibly cozy and is very fashionable. It's so comfy that you might even want to wear it inside while watching TV! :)

True to the test!

Any of you backers on our travel club? Our jackets have been tested and have been taken all over the world. We know our NEW excursion jackets will add to one's travel experience by  offering the additional protection and features.

Risks and challenges

Thanks to your support we have done 10 successful campaigns all helping with our production. Most rewards have been delivered on time or sometimes early. As we grow, our production gets bigger, we have more quality concerns to deal with, and more can go wrong to cause late shipping. Especially when it is a really difficult fabric to develop. In the end, we always come through.

We are offering a number of styles and colors and some styles and colors may not be popular enough to produce. This does happen but not very much. If you do pick an unpopular style, we can substitute for a more popular style or even return your reward if necessary.

This new fabric in this project shouldn't have many challenges but there are a lot more details coming with the female jackets such as the purse pocket and the layering pieces. There isn't anything we are concerned about, just that there is more to mange and to arrive on time. We are planning to ship in October but we are scheduling the goods to arrive in September to give us a little cushion.

Once again, without your support we would not be here. We are hoping our new product group will be a home run.

Thanks again,

Todd Listwin
