Aalborg, Denmark (PRWEB) December 19, 2016
Legs Jacket, stylish and eco-friendly bicycle commuter pants created by VEAR, are now available on Indiegogo InDemand after completing a highly successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter – garnering more than $127,000 from backers who purchased the revolutionary windproof, waterproof, breathable and lightweight pants.
“To beat our Kickstarter Campaign Goal of $22,000 by more than five times shows the market is ready for high-performance rain pants that are both stylish and functional,” said VEAR co-founder Valentin Nicoară. “Rain is the number one reason people cycle less, especially when it comes to riding their bikes or motorcycles to work, and Legs Jacket offers those people a way to keep their legs and shoes protected from inclement weather.”
The high-performance Legs Jacket rain pants are designed with the urban biker’s needs in mind, with features that keep cyclists comfortable, dry and safe on their commute so they can arrive at their destination dry and in style. They have double front pockets so riders can easily access their regular pants underneath, an adjustable waist band, and shoe protectors to keep shoes and socks dry.
The pants are also ideal for the millions of commuters who walk to work daily, especially those who rely on public transit, and who must often navigate their way through rain and snow while keeping suit pants, socks and shoes dry.
“In more cities, young professionals are also opting to settle in communities where they can both live and work so they can also walk or bike to the office,” Nicoară said. “For those choosing that type of urban lifestyle, Legs Jacket is a true necessity – and will quickly become a key part of their professional wardrobe on snowy, rainy, damp and cool days.”
Legs Jacket pants can also be used for golf, mountain biking, hiking, motorcycling or any other outdoor activity – keeping people dry and comfortable in bad weather.
Legs Jacket pants are made with special reflective features that remain black and discreet during the day, but also provide 360-degree visibility at night. The pants are lightweight and can be quickly folded and stored in their own back pocket and attached to a bike seat.
The creators of VEAR live, work and commute in Denmark, a country that’s famous for its eco-friendly biking culture -- and also infamous for its rainy climate. This environment is what inspired Nicoară to create VEAR Legs Jacket.
“These are rain pants that are easy for riders to get in and out of, and are also lightweight, compact and easy to carry -- just in case an unexpected rain shower comes along,” he said.
One of the key features of the Legs Jacket is that they are designed so bikers and walkers can easily get them on and off in seconds without removing their shoes -- a great feature for busy urban commuters.
“We also like to promote cycling as a healthy and a sustainable method of transportation,” Nicoară said. “Our focus is to make cycling an easy, safe and pleasurable experience for everyone in any type of weather, and to encourage more people to cycle more often -- and Legs Jacket eliminates one more obstacle to reaching those objectives.”
As crowdfunding continues, backers will still receive special early-bird discounts when they purchase Legs Jacket. To order, or for more information, visit the VEAR Legs Jacket Campaign Page on Indiegogo InDemand.
