About this project
Clothing Arts Featured in:
The Cubed Travel Jacket™ is a 4-season jacket combining distinctive style, innovative pocketing and an eVent® DVStorm™ membrane, the most technically advanced waterproof/breathable fabric in existence.
The Cubed Travel Jacket™ is the one jacket you will never want to leave home without. It's the culmination of years of development and offers more pockets and features than any other waterproof shell available on the market today.
Reinventing the Waterproof Shell: It Begins with Pockets
A great waterproof shell is your best friend on the road, whether you’re in the city or the mountains. If you've traveled in one, you know what we're talking about.
However, waterproof shells were born in the outdoor industry, which means they’ve been traditionally designed for extreme weather protection during specific outdoor activities like mountaineering. So shells are made with the pockets placed to stay out of the way of a harness and shoulders wide enough for swinging ice axes. This is great if you’re dangling hundreds of feet above a glacier, but impractical for daily life.
So we chose the most practical and beautiful pockets in the jacket world: Twin Napoleons. But with a twist...
Our twin Napoleon INT/EXT PKTS™ (Interior/Exterior accessible pockets) allow you to access essential items without undoing the main zipper. Something we wished we had when attempting to retrieve a wallet or phone from our jackets during rainstorms…
We designed the pocketing on the Cubed Travel Jacket™ to accommodate everyday life, while retaining the advancements of technical waterproof materials. With 8 pockets total, you’ll have all the carryability you need to go anywhere.
Cutting-Edge Waterproof/Breathable Jacket Tech… For Everyday Life
We independently tested every leading Waterproof/Breathable membrane on the market today and concluded the eVent® DVStorm™ membrane lead with perfect waterproofness and awe-inspiring breathability.
Waterproof/Breathable technology has come a long way since your 90s windbreaker. Our fabric withstood a 20000 mm/24HR water-column test (water accelerated to twice the velocity of a hurricane), while being air permeable (so you don't sweat buckets while climbing a flight of steps), with an incredible 20000 G/M2/24HR breathability rating.
Far less toxic than most DWRs (Durable Water Repellants), and used by environmentally minded companies like Patagonia, the short-chain C6 DWR is our repellant of choice, protecting you and the environment.
The jacket is fully taped-seamed, which means every exterior stitch is backed by a line of waterproof tape to form a total seal.
We have years of experience designing articulated patterns to facilitate complete freedom of movement, without the bulk you'll find in other technical shells. Go ahead and stretch, it feels great.
Styled as an urban travel jacket, you can go anywhere with it and feel right at home. We chose a highly durable face fabric with a natural feel, which isn’t shiny or noisy like the plastic-feeling face fabrics found on most waterproof shells.
You won’t find a single stitch down the front of the jacket (besides those securing the Napoleon Pockets), a feat achieved by an innovative manufacturing technique where the internal pockets are sewn directly into the taped seams.
We designed the collar so it’s not too high or low, but just right, with ample room to accommodate a scarf.
We've worn a lot of jackets over the years. Some we've loved, others not so much. The Cubed Travel Jacket™ is the culmination of our experiences pushing the boundaries of what a waterproof shell can do for your everyday life.

Risks and challenges
We at Clothing Arts are proud to have our clothes travel with our customers on their adventures around the world. Founded in 2009, we’ve experienced the range of challenges that come up during production. The Cubed Travel Jacket is our next big move, which is why we’re launching here on Kickstarter. Our past customers know that we’re dedicated to delivering what we promise.
We want you to have your jacket by Fall 2016. We don’t expect any issues, however, as this is the first jacket we’ve launched, it’s important to note that there can be factors that we haven't anticipated.
As the jacket has been in development for two years, we have great relationship with the manufacturer and have already smoothed out a number of production hurdles.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
