We designed our Hands Free Hoodie to free up your hands for everyday living and to make travel more convenient, because you always seem to have one too many things to carry when checking in.

Aviator today launched its Kickstarter campaign to introduce its newest travel and convenience Hands-Free Hoodie that will change the way people handle their most important items – including smartphones, tickets and transit passes.

Each jacket features innovative “clear touch” forearm sleeve pockets made from a durable vinyl that is thick enough to protect valuables, but thin enough to allow the operation of any phone by touch. The sleeve pockets are designed to hold smartphones, ski-lift tickets, transit-cards and more. With the smartphone positioned in the clear touch sleeve, users can now board planes by just turning their forearm to have their e-ticket scanned.

“We designed our Hands-Free Hoodie to free up your hands for everyday living and to make travel more convenient, because you always seem to have one too many things to carry when checking in,” said Aviator Founder Colby Kane. “Now you can have your boarding pass in a sleeve pocket the with scan code facing out and get it scanned while holding your coffee in one hand and your carry-on in the other.”

Travel is just one of the many applications of the Hands-Free Hoodie:

  •     It’s also great for making a smartphone scan purchase – just turn your forearm and scan
  •     For lift tickets on the slopes
  •     For walking the to the stadium for a concert or sporting event with your ticket for scanning in one sleeve and your smart phone in the other
  •     For transit passes – always have them handy in your sleeve
  •     For quick access to your smartphone – it’s always on your forearm and you can message, call, browse, take selfies – do everything without having to take your phone out
  •     Sleeve pockets fit almost all smartphone sizes including iPhone 6Plus and Galaxy S6+
  •     Frees up clutter purses and pocket space – now you have your smartphone and most important documents (tickets, passes, passport) in sight on your forearm

Additional “on-the-go” features include:

  •     Sleeper Hood (great for travel and transit)
  •     Chamois Micro-Fiber Screen Cleaning Cloth
  •     YYK Black Coil Zipper
  •     Three Way Cuffs That Can Be Worn Standard, Fingerless, Or Full Mitten
  •     Protective pocket inside the jacket for valuables that are best kept out of sight.
  •     All pockets are designed with earphone accessibility.
