What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

It's BACK! The SDJ-02

We heard you. 

We listened to your feedback after the SDJ-01. Because of that, we are proud to say we have improved on the design of the SDJ-02 in every possible way. Improvements include:

  • climate control (heating + cooling modes)
  • USB port for charging mobile devices
  • larger pockets for smarphones/tablets
  • thinner, lighter, and quieter air amplifiers
  • light up, retro-style buttons
  • cleaner,streamlined jacket design
  • and more!

We made the SDJ-02 FOR YOU !

FEATURES 

COOLING MODE

Know that feeling when it's too cold to take your jacket off but just warm enough to make you uncomfortable? The SDJ-02's air amplifiers can draw some cool air into the lining of the jacket, quickly making things "just right".

  

HEATING MODE 

3 heating pads warm the jacket and pockets, making even the coldest day bearable, truly making the SDJ-02 a jacket for all seasons.

  

  

5000 mAh BATTERY

We have upgraded the battery: In addition to powering the jacket, the battery now comes with a USB port to charge your smartphone or tablet. With 5000 mAh of juice at your disposal, you won’t need a Mr. Fusion to keep you going.

AIR AMPLIFIERS 

The air amplifiers are capable of redirecting air with extreme high pressure and flow at rates equal to or surpassing commercially available hair dryers. We have made the air amplifiers in the SDJ-02 thinner, lighter, quieter, and more efficient than the SDJ-01.

The air amplifiers function in the space between the jacket’s exterior and the inner lining. This serves to keep the high pressure air circulating in an enclosed space, maximizing cooling and drying capability.

 

  

SMARTPHONE/TABLET POCKETS

Since this is truly meant to be a jacket of the future, it also includes internal pockets to store your smartphone as well as your tablet for ease and convenience. The position of the smartphone pocket puts it in optimal position for headphone use.

  

 MATERIALS AND FABRIC 

We have identified and secured quality fabric manufacturers who are suppliers to well-known apparel brands. Our jackets are composed of a water repellant nylon outer layer with synthetic insulation.

Synthetic insulation is designed to replicate the qualities of down, but retain them even when wet. It’s made with polyester fibers that are arranged in different sized filaments and intertwined, mimicking down’s lofty clusters. These ultrafine fibers trap warmth in air pockets, providing great warmth. The upside to synthetic insulation is that it is resistant to moisture, and when it does get wet it dries quickly. These qualities combined with the air amplifiers and heating system mean the SDJ-02 dries quicker than any other jacket that has ever existed.

  

  

COLORS 

The SDJ-02 comes in 3 colors:

  • cool CHARCOAL BLACK,
  • sleek METALLIC SILVER, and
  • "Back To The Future" inspired SPECIAL EDITION

  

 

  

 

Risks and challenges

With your help, we successfully funded the SDJ-01 at the end of 2015 and delivered all rewards 7 months later. In the process, we learned a lot about the ins and outs of bringing a Kickstarter project to life

We are 100% certain we can produce the SDJ-02 even more quickly than the SDJ-01. We still have our supply chains in place from the SDJ-01, we know eaxactly what we are doing, and do not anticipate making many radical changes to the design like we did with the SDJ-01.

We are confident we will meet our delivery goal of first shipment by October 2017.
