About this project

The revolutionary new AyeGear® J-25 is a stylish and versatile utility jacket providing the ultimate in connectivity, accessibility, mobility & security.

At the heart of the AyeGear® range is the need to adapt to the growing technology sector and to provide practical solutions to tech-savvy consumers who wish to stay connected whilst on their travels. This challenge prompted the company to design a range of quality travel garments, providing CAMS (Connectivity, Accessibility, Mobility & Security).

We need your help. We are looking to boost our production for our latest garment, the AyeGear J25. Being a small business, we often have to jump through hoops in order to balance our resources without compromising on quality, as the quality of our garments is crucial to the AyeGear brand. With your help, we would be able to increase our output in the production facility.  Your support would mean we could not only place bulk orders in one go and have stock readily available, but also keep retail costs down. The garment quality, finish and even the production skills used for the AyeGear J25 are exactly the same as, if not better than, those being used by high-end retail stores around the world today.  The only difference is that we are giving our customers outstanding quality and superior functionality at a cost which is affordable.

The AyeGear® J-25 has 25 separate compartments designed to provide wearers with added security and accessibility to all their valuables, gadgets and travel essentials. Whether you're travelling through airports (enabling you to save on baggage charges and be given prompt security clearance), commuting into work or participating in sports, the J25 is an all-rounder and a truly invaluable asset.  The AyeGear® J-25 has been carefully designed (registered design 4035213) and engineered to ensure the wearer feels comfortable with or without the pockets loaded. Our unique 3-layered design allows for the weight of the loaded compartments to be balanced and thus eliminating any bulge.

The AyeGear® J-25 not only boasts great functionality, but the fabrics used in it's construction have been upgraded for ultimate performance too. We approached our supplier (who produces garments for some of the leading premium clothing brands) and we insisted on nothing but the best materials for the AyeGear® J-25. After numerous consultations and trials, the end result was exceptional.  A perfect blend of Cotton and Nylon was chosen - also referred to as Ottoman fabric, known in the textile world for its supremacy.  Even the zippers used in the AyeGear® J-25 are of the highest standard to ensure they do not stick, feel cheap and are easy to use.
The AyeGear® J25 is suitable for both cold climates (with a concealed hood for rain/snow protection and waterproof lining) and hot climates (with removable sleeves and breathable lining).  The garment is the epitome of all four of our core aims: Connectivity; Accessibility, Mobility & Security (CAMS). 

The AyeGear J25 incorporates the following features:

At AyeGear, we are no strangers to implementing complex designs. The AyeGear J25 is our sixth product in our growing portfolio. We have recently approved all of the AyeGear J25 accessories (zippers, zip pullers, key retractors, plastic film) and the fabrics with our supplier.

Risks and challenges

We have done our best to mitigate the risks and challenges for this project.

We have been working with two pre-production prototypes. Once we received our initial prototype, we were taken back by what we seen in terms of the concept and quality. However, minor detailing such as the look of the icons on the pockets and the fabric colour on the inner side just didn't sit right - so we pushed the factory to send out a second sample before we hit mass production. We were able to turn this around swiftly with the help of our partners.

The challenge initially was to locate a factory who could turn this concept into reality. To produce a complex garment required a special kind of workforce - and we spent four months looking for the right partner to help us achieve our goal, albeit a little pricier but worth it in the end. We opted for a production facility who have had ample experience in the outwear business - both past and present. Not only this, we wanted to work with a factory who produces specifically for leading travel brands so that there is a vigorous set standard for quality, workmanship and professionalism.

Once the project is funded, we do not expect to see any issues. We will communicate with our backers throughout the campaign to keep everyone informed and up to date on our progress - feel free to follow us on social media for updates.
