About

 Do you find yourself jumping between your down jacket and your synthetic jacket? Why should you have to choose between a bulky warm jacket and a light versatile jacket. 

The Outdoor Vitals LoftTek™ Adventure jacket solves this problem. We’ve designed it to be light, warm, versatile, and durable for your all your adventures.

We didn’t hold back on any features. We didn’t design it to hit a price point for a shelf in a store, but rather to be the most versatile ultralight jacket out there. Most jackets don’t have all of  the features we do. If they did, they would be $200 - $300 jackets. This jacket has all the features you need without the heavy price tag.

LoftTek™ is the world's most advanced synthetic down imitation. The loose fill nature of the fibers mimics down’s extreme weight to warmth ratios and packability, while the it’s synthetic nature allows it to stay warm in wet conditions!

Unlike down, LoftTek uses siliconized fibers that dry quickly and always stay lofted for optimal warmth - even when wet.

You get the ultralight warmth and packability of down and the versatility and moisture advantages of synthetic. 

The LoftTek™ Adventure Jacket is the perfect adventure jacket because it doesn’t require much packing space. The best part is, you can pack the entire jacket into its own pocket. Use it when you need and and pack it into itself when you don’t. 

Because of it’s ultra soft material, your packed jacket can also second as a pillow. Another way to save space without compromising your comfort.

Never worry again about the rain catching up to you. Our LoftTek™ Adventure Jacket is coated so that water will bead up and roll off rather than absorb into the fabric.

The LoftTek™ Adventure Jacket is fully weatherproof and can stand up to the harshest  conditions including snow, rain, cold temperatures, and extreme wind without sacrificing warmth or performance.

To give you most heat and stabilization - the baffle design minimizes sewing lines, also known as cold spots, while still keeping the insulation in place and stable.

Because our jackets aren’t technically a down jacket, we don’t need the extra down proof coating. This makes the material more breathable for those active journey days.

Zip up the jacket and feel the hood hug your neck. Now you can keep the unwanted air out and stay comfortable.

For added warmth and protection, we made sure to insulate the entire hood.

For better head movement, our hoods have two different elastic cord adjustments. This allows you to cinch the hood around your face as well as keep the hood tight to the back of your head. No more turning your head and having the hood stay facing forward.

If you find yourself storing too much warmth, use the underarm zippers to release some of the heat. These are especially useful during high activity. 

The thumbholes in the sleeve ends allow the sleeves to stay fully extended and in place, even when layering up or being active. Avoid shivers up your arms - especially during super active use. You can also put gloves on in order to really make sure your hands are nice and warm.

If thumbholes and gloves aren’t enough, dip your hands into your pockets. Carefully designed, the pocket sits behind the insulation of the jacket allowing your hands to stay toasty and protected.

Make sure you don’t lose any of your valuables while on your epic adventure.

The insulation dries extremely quickly so if you need to wash it in a hostel or hotel sink, it can air dry fast and be ready to go the next day.

We believe that some of our best trips are one where we can live in the adventure. During our best adventures we feel prepared and comfortable, which allows us to live in the moment. We designed the The Outdoor Vitals LoftTek™ Adventure Jacket to give you everything you need without holding you back wherever you are. Whether your adventure is bar hopping in the city with your friends, or hiking in Yosemite, you need a jacket that can do it all, so that you can too! And we believe that with the LoftTek™ Adventure Jacket you can. 

This pillow is your saving grace in the backcountry! The stretch nylon material stretches and moves with your head providing a more comfortable night sleep without feeling like your sleeping on a rock for a pillow! The stretch nylon material also feels like a pillowcase to your skin that breathes and feels natural.

Often times as backpackers we use lumpy clothes as a pillow and wonder why we don't sleep well. Well, with the Outdoor Vitals stretch pillow, you'll never consider leaving this little. 2.6 oz luxury comfort pillow behind!

A few years ago our founder Tayson started Outdoor Vitals to help outdoor enthusiasts to “Live Ultralight” through use of premium ultralight products that cut down on waste. We believe Living Ultralight means using premium gear that works in any weather, and is easy to pack and won’t slow you down. It means buying less quantity to fill up our earth’s landfills and buying more quality products that are ready for all your adventures.

He knew that premium gear was inherently lighter, lasted longer and provided better outdoor experiences, however the price of the gear was out of reach for him and his family. He wanted outdoor adventurers to spend less on gear and more on experiences so Outdoor Vitals sell direct to consumers online to save you 40-50% off of retail store prices. He also feels very fortunate while others around the world have not been as fortunate, so Outdoor Vitals donates 1% of revenues to sustainable poverty projects around the world. 

The Outdoor Vitals team is now focused on becoming the next generation outdoor brand to rival the retail giants. Join with us and start Living Ultralight today!

When we started, we only had $500 to put into the company - and we never took venture capital. We determined that a family owned company is better at creating value for customers. While the company has grown to be a 9 figure brand, it's still extremely vital to our growth that we use crowdfunding platforms to help us compete with investment company owned or venture capital backed outdoor brands. We believe that focusing on long term value for our customers is more important than reporting to investors about how to maximize the next months profits.

Risks and challenges

We've worked extremely hard to bring this product to life with multiple prototypes, tests and supplier relations. With any project, there are some risks that we would like to go over:

Manufacturing: We will be using a long term supplier of ours that has produced our high end sleeping bags. Most of their business is apparel and we already know and trust their quality. We've already secured a production time for the jacket if the product hits it's goal!

Fulfillment Timeline: While we have been shipping and importing for multiple years now, it can never be predicted with 100% accuracy. Our experience and relationship in logistics will allow us to smoothly handle the shipping process. We have built in extra time into our timeline for any unexpected delays. We will also keep very open and honest communication with you throughout the process of manufacturing and fulfillment.
