Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 18, 2016
Smart Parka, the world's first complete winter coat, continues to stay extremely hot by reaching another major milestone of $2.0M (CAD) raised ($1.54M USD) and is now the most funded campaign currently live on Kickstarter.
With an original goal of $30,000 CAD, Smart Parka has re-defined the definition of greatly exceeding expectations; surpassing its goal by a whopping 6700%.
Normally at this time of year, people are thinking about putting away their winter coats, but the Smart Parka and its 5500 backers can't get enough of this coat, no matter what the season.
“We are thrilled beyond words with all of the attention and support the Smart Parka has generated,” said Jamil Khan, founder of North Aware Inc. “We can't wait to see people wearing our coat from coast to coast and know this is the new standard of what a winter coat should be.”
Smart Parka features built-in gloves that allow users to operate touch devices, a built-in scarf, tech pockets for smart phones and tablets, a length extension, removable lining for two-different temperature ranges, and a hat pocket, along with other features.
Smart Parka comes in four different styles for women and three different styles for men.
“We have something to fit every personality,” added Khan. “Not only does it address technology needs, but it finally recognizes the need to incorporate all other winter accessories into one single integrated parka.”
North Aware is now planning manufacturing, growing its line of winter wear, and expanding into new geographic markets outside Canada and the US.
The final product is slated for delivery in August 2016.
