About this project
The Drinking Jacket is a feature-packed hoodie and the ultimate accessory for anyone who consumes liquids! This high-quality hoodie will help you open, transport and consume the beverage of your choice. All backer levels include free shipping inside the US!
The Drinking Jacket is so cozy and comfortable, it's destined to be your favorite hoodie. But, besides keeping you warm, it will also keep your drinks cold! It has a built-in bottle opener, neoprene koozie pocket, hidden flask pocket, drinking mitts, sunglass holder and many other features to make this the best drinking jacket ever!
New Stretch Goal
We hit $500,000, so the limited edition color BLUE HAWAIIAN is unlocked! Which means, if you back the project, when the campaign is concluded, you will be able to choose between CHARCOAL GREY (dark heather grey), MERLOT (heather maroon), CHARRED OAK (heather black) or BLUE HAWAIIAN (heather blue).
BOTTLE OPENER ZIPPER - the front zipper is a durable bottle-opener in a gun-metal finish. Get back all of that time you’d spend looking for a bottle opener, because you'll always have one within reach!
BEER KOOZIE POCKET - a neoprene-lined breast pocket to hold your beer can or bottle. Instead of searching for a place to set your beer down, keep it close in the koozie pocket. It can also hold your phone quite nicely - just not at the same time as your beer!
SUNGLASS HOLDER - don't lose your sunglasses again when day-drinking turns into night-drinking! Or outdoor-drinking turns into indoor-drinking! The loop will keep your sunglasses secure, while the fleece strap keeps them from flopping around.
DRINKING MITTS - slip resistant drinking mitts are built into the sleeves. Keep your hands warm whether you’re drinking or not. Don’t need the gloves? Fold the cuff over and they’re gone!
HIDDEN FLASK POCKET - an inside pocket to hide things… like your passport, iPod, wallet, or our optional metal-detector-proof flask.
SNAPPABLE I.D. AND MONEY POCKET - keep your ID, credit cards, bartender tips, or cab fare close at hand in the arm pocket.
DEEP POCKETS - Use the deep pockets to keep things in. May we suggest a few more beers?!
REFLECTIVE LOGO - The stylish logo lets people know you’re ready to drink - and it’s reflective to help passing cars see you!
ZIPPER COVER - The zipper cover will keep the bottle opener zipper from hitting you in the face. And, it looks stylish!
OWNERSHIP LABEL - Write your email address on the inside label, so it can be returned to you should you, um, have too much fun and leave your amazing hoodie somewhere.
HIGH-QUALITY FABRICS - The hoodie is made from high quality fabric for maximum comfort, durability, warmth, and movement. The hoodie and zipper flap are lined with a Pleepleus® pattern fabric.
Give the Drinking Jacket as a Gift this Holiday Season!
Since the Drinking Jacket won't go into production until after this Kickstarter campaign is funded, it will not be ready in time for the holidays. So, we've made some emailable and printable cards that you can give your friends and family to let them know that you bought them the Drinking Jacket for the holidays.
VIDEO eCARDS - The video eCards will feature Zane in funny videos for Christmas, Hanukkah, Birthday or just to say "You're Awesome"! You can email the video or pull it up on your phone to show them in person. It's a fun way to let them know that a Drinking Jacket will be shipped to them soon!
PRINTABLE & EMAILABLE CARDS - We've also made some nice cards that you can print or email, so you have something physical to give as a gift.
STRETCH GOALS - The CHARCOAL FILTERED (heather grey) hoodie is now unlocked. It became available when the campaign reached its goal. The MERLOT (heather maroon) and CHARRED OAK (heather black) are also now options!
When the Kickstarter campaign is completed, you will be emailed a survey, at which time you may select your size, color, and give us your shipping info.
THE DRINKING JACKET - The ultimate apparel for any drinker. It has so many cool features, it's like a Swiss Army drinking hoodie.
