The Whistler Windbreaker is self-healing, featherweight, and functional—in short, it’s the jacket that does it all. Your perfect travel piece, it’s got five pockets for storing your phone, wallet, gloves, and more, plus it’s coated with a DWR application to keep light precipitation at bay. The Whistler will keep you protected from winds while serving as an easy-to-pack layer, from the mountains to the city and beyond.
Our specially-made HiloTech Self-Healing Material uses the friction and heat produced by rubbing your fingers over the material to repair small punctures in seconds. No joke: you can bring your Whistler back to life instantly after it gets small holes or tears!
Made from a unique combination of repairable material and nylon ripstop, HiloTech is revolutionizing the way lightweight jackets are made. Now you can bushwack, fence hop, or scale a crag without worrying your jacket will be destroyed. This hi-tech fabric will even prolong the lifespan of your jacket!
Our HiloTech material utilizes specially woven nylon yarns that are constructed of microscopic fibers. The grid-like weave reinforces the materials and prevents the fabric from ripping or tearing.
Just like the microscopic hairs on an insect’s legs can give it grip to cling to plants and trees, the tiny fibers in the HiloTech material allow the fabric to adhere itself back together, time and time again.
We wanted the Whistler Windbreaker to do everything you need it to and nothing more. Weighing less than half a pound and designed with enough pockets to store the important stuff, it’s an easy item to pack for your international adventures or road trips to the mountains.
Like many of our goods, the Whistler Windbreaker can be packed down to virtually nothing. Stuff it into it’s front chest pocket and you’re ready! Use it as a cozy camp or airplane pillow, or use the carabiner loop to clip it to your pack for easy access while you’re on the go.
At Coalatree we pride ourselves on making our goods functional and packable. That means you can stash your gear in your day pack, car, or travel bag, so it’s always ready to go. Our gear is meant to be used, so get out there and use it!
Risks and challenges
This is our 7th Kickstarter, and by now we've nearly got it nailed down to a science. However, things can always happen that are beyond our control, and we do our best to communicate those challenges up front and as they arise. These include unforseen shipping delays, problems in our factory partners, government shutdowns, and more. We promise to do our best to keep our customers updated with the progress and satisfied with the final product. Your support means a lot to us and we want to ensure you’re happy with the product, people, and company you’ve backed!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
