This Six-in-One Jacket and Vest Combo Is Versatile in All Kinds of Weather
If you live in an area with varying weather patterns, it’s important to invest in a jacket with a little versatility to it. But when you're talking about needing a heavy jacket for the winter, a lighter one for fall, and an even lighter vest for spring, things can get real expensive and cumbersome real fast. But the company LiteTravel is looking to solve that with the SMOL, a six-in-one jacket and vest combo that just launched its Kickstarter campaign.
The SMOL set, which is both water- and wind-resistant, comes with a jacket, hood, and vest. The hood can zip off, depending on your preference, and the vest can be zipped underneath the jacket for added warmth as temperatures drop. If you become a backer now, $109 will get you both the jacket and the vest with two travel pouches for 45 percent off its retail value.
According to the company, the vest can keep you warm in temperatures as low as 32°F; the jacket keeps you toasty in temperatures as low as 14°F; and the jacket plus the vest can keep you comfortable in temperatures as low as -4°F. LiteTravel also says that their insulation is both eco-friendly and 100 percent cruelty-free (and they will plant one tree for every jacket sold). The jacket and vest can also compress into a travel pouch that’s about 7 inches by 10.5 inches, making it easy to pack into a suitcase.
Not only does the SMOL allow you to adjust to different weather scenarios, but to outfit choices as well. The jacket comes in black and gray; sage and navy; and beige and wine, so you can mix and match with a variety of colors.
With more than $235,000 raised, the campaign has already surpassed its original $9500 goal. But you can still back this project until March 14 by heading here.
