It's not overly bulky and is large enough to carry a map.

We worked alongside our elite apparel factory and went through many prototype reiterations until we were 100% satisfied with the results. Now, we're ready to launch, but need your help to meet quantity minimums and bring the Annapurna Softshell to production.

In exchange for your patience, we are offering this very high quality, softshell jacket at only $130 (Free Worldwide Shipping). Don't miss this amazing jacket at discounted pricing!

 

How to choose sizes and 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.

Giving the Annapurna Softshell as a Gift this Season:

Since the Annapurna Softshell Jacket won't go into production until after this Kickstarter campaign is funded, it will not be ready in time for the holidays. However, we've designed an e-mailable and printable card that you can give your friends and family to let them know that you bought them the Annapurna Softshell for the holidays!

Risks and challenges

With our first Kickstarter, we delivered a product that exceeded many of our backers expectations. We look forward to a 2nd successful Kickstarter!

There are several working parts to bring a jacket of this quality to market and as with most manufacturing, we must count on a chain of supply to deliver on-time. Since we refuse to work with factories allowing unfair working conditions, we have to be aware that orders can get backed up. However, we're partnered with some of the highest quality textile mills and factories in existence. It helps insure a consistent, high quality product, while avoiding delays in production. With a very successful 1st Kickstarter under our belt, we trust that our backers have the confidence in us to produce for them exactly what's promised, a Sweet Softshell!
