We Passed The $50,000 Milestone!
Hello Kickstarter community,
Thank you so much for your support. We surpassed the $50,000 milestone and have more than 300 backers now. We are halfway through our campaign and are so excited. This is amazing! We couldn't do this without you.
GETTING THE FULL SCOPE
If you are not following us on Instagram please do so to get the latest information. Our ambassadors are very active and share some of the most amazing adventures!
We have ambassadors from Germany, France, Australia, Slovakia, El Salvador, and the United States (California, Wyoming, Colorado, Texas, Alabama, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, New Jersey, Michigan, Wisconsin and many other states). It warms our heart to see that they are all connected through our community where they share their culture, values and most importantly their passion for the outdoors!
Our jacket was developed to fill a specific gap in the clothing industry where we saw the need to combine every feature and capability a jacket could have into one specific jacket that has it all. If you research, you will see that most jackets are either very light and lack the capabilities a much more advanced jacket would have, or are packed with features but lack some of the simplest features!
The Packsture Jacket is REALLY a unique piece of art and everyone who came in contact with it couldn’t believe how amazing it feels just to hold it, let alone try it on. We are extremely excited to share it with you and can’t wait to ship it and get your feedback.
THE WATERPROOF STANDARDS:
Whether you are out for an outdoor experience or simply walking your dog around the block, The Packsture Jacket is built with fabric rating of 10,000mm. This means that it is suitable for all weather conditions; great for hiking, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding, or in extreme and bad weather conditions.
MVTR (MOISTURE VAPOR TRANSMISSION RATE)
This is the measure of how much water vapor can pass through a square meter of a membrane within 24 hours. Our Jacket has a membrane with an MVTR of 10,000g/m²/24h and is very breathable.
THE PACKSTURE JACKET SHELL
100% Polyester TPU Membrane with a DuPont™ Teflon® industrial coating
3M™ SCOTCHLITE™ REFLECTIVE MATERIAL
3M™ is a pioneer in developing the science behind retro-reflection and has been advancing the technology in new and groundbreaking ways for over 70 years. Their products are proven to be bright, durable and high quality, with worldwide technical, marketing and lab support.
Yes, The Packsture Jacket is packable. The jacket is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and travelers alike, because it can be rolled into a small compression sack helping you save space in your suitcase or backpack. WE ARE NOT currently offering the "sack". If things evolve and we reach our stretch goals this might be a possibility! Images of the Jacket rolled into packable position are below per one backer’s request (Thank you for the request).
3M™ THINSULATE™ INSULATION
The original thin, light and warm synthetic insulation is used. The extremely fine microfibers in Thinsulate™ insulation help trap air and block body radiant heat loss, making it an efficient insulator. The high warmth-to-thickness ratio of this insulation enables garment designs with less bulk and enhanced freedom of movement.
We received a mention from some media here and there! A great article by the amazing Thomas Oppong a columnist @Inc. Magazine and Founding Editor @Alltopstartups from the U.K. We think that's pretty cool. Trend Hunter mentioned us twice as well, and we had a great review by one of our collaborators on Medium.
Special thanks to everyone who reached out to us to either congratulate us, write about us, offer their services, or simply wanted to say hi! Thank you to all our backers, family members, friends, and everyone who supports us during this journey.
