The Whistler windbreaker is made of 100% nylon with a DWR coating that repels water from light rainfall. However, it's not just any nylon material- it's "HiloTech," which is said to have specially woven nylon strands that consist of microscopic fibers. These fibers stick to the leg of an insect like the hair, and if you apply a little heat and friction by rubbing the material with your finger, the fibers may adhere to cover a small hole.
In addition to being able to heal small punctures, they include a glove inner pocket, a cell phone pocket on the outside, handwarmer pockets, a chin guard, hood and waist cords, elastic cuffs and a reflective logo on the sleeve. If you do not wear the jacket, you can put it in the front breast pocket. This creates a compact package with which you can travel comfortably. The filled package even has a carabiner loop that allows you to hang the jacket on the outside of a travel bag.
While the product is interesting and Coalatree undoubtedly deserves the benefit, it would be nice to see a more thorough demonstration of the types of damage that you can reasonably expect to endure to be repaired. The demo video shows that thorns or small nail marks could be wiped out in seconds, but one author from The Inventory said he was not lucky enough to "heal" a small linear cut with a pair of scissors. What about small holes fired from campfire heat into the material?
Whistler shipping is scheduled for March 2020. Kickstarter prices start at $ 72 for a single jacket – $ 57 less than the expected retail price. The size of XS to XXL and as a reference the size of the medium weighs seven ounces.
Announcing on yesterday's Kickstarter site, Coalatree said it had managed to reach its original $ 50,000 funding target. That amount reached $ 62,275 at the time of writing, and the company says that if it can reach its $ 100,000 "stretch target" on Kickstarter, it will turn red into its current selection of black, blue, and green Add color option. Considering that the campaign has 27 days left and only now enters the news industry, it seems quite possible to reach $ 100,000 or more.
As mentioned, this is not Coalatree's first outing to the stranger side of fashion after he has previously funded it and dispatched a hoodie made from recycled coffee grounds. This project has received support of $ 558,796 and is available today for $ 109 with cheap reviews on the web. The company also boasts that it was not too late to realize a single Kickstarter project.
