Clothing Arts is known for their Pick Pocket Proof™ shirts and pants that have now prevented 24 confirmed thefts around the world. Building on the brand’s success, they now introduce an innovative and commonsense jacket perfect for international travel to anywhere, in any weather; the Cubed Travel Jacket.
The Cubed Travel Jacket is designed to deliver performance in a package that appears inconspicuous (invisible) to would be thieves. On the outside, it looks sleek and fashionable, but on the inside it has 8 pockets that are large enough to hold entire books. In addition, the dual Napoleon pockets have patent pending internal and external access; something so common sense it is not surprising that no one even checked to see if it is patented.
The Cubed Travel Jacket is designed on a foundation of performance. First, the shell is literally the most advanced breathable waterproof DVStorm™ membrane by eVent. It is an articulated fit design with quiet (looking at you windbreaker!) soft, natural-feel fabric on the outside, and tricot, lightweight 30D backing on the inside. It has a removable hood, Velcro-tightened sleeve cuffs, a scarf-friendly collar, and invisible waist-cinchers that hide in the outside hand pockets. In addition, it has minimalist stitching with taped seams for maximum water-protection.
The Jacket is available for $280 early bird special in three colors on the just started Kickstarter, and comes with a defect and construction guarantee, as well as a replacement for jackets that don’t fit.
DISCLAIMER: My name is Milosz Pierwola and I had secret early access to the jacket to provide feedback and photograph it for the Kickstarter campaign. I have no financial interest in the jacket at this time, and I am excited to see it come to market because I believe it is a great product based on my experience with it so far.
Note: We get to keep most of the gear that we test out. While this is a perk, we try hard to give everything an unbiased review no matter what.
If you end up buying something through a link on our site, we generally get a small commission on the referral, this won't cost you more, but helps us keep the lights on around here!
