We’re excited our campaign for the Camper Down Hooded Jacket got off to such a great start, but we’re also excited that more people will get to enjoy wearing this cool-looking, super lightweight jacket.

The new feature-loaded version of Coalatree’s beloved featherlight, toasty-warm Camper Down Hooded Jacket has quadrupled its campaign goal on Kickstarter to raise more than $250,000 with less than a month left in its crowdfunding campaign.

“We’re excited our campaign got off to such a great start, but we’re also excited that more people will get to enjoy wearing this cool-looking, super lightweight jacket,” said Coalatree Founder and CEO Jacob Charles Bessey. “The material we used for the Camper Down Hooded Jacket ensures you can wear the jacket and still move at pace as if it were summer, while incorporating technology to ensure you stay toasty even on the coldest winter days.”

Made from recycled and upcycled materials, the Camper Down Hooded Jacket is an all-purpose jacket that combines the warmth and comfort of a down jacket with the style and function that makes it ideal for outdoor adventure, travel and city living. Since it can also be packed down into a tiny pouch for easy transport, or a comfortable travel pillow, the jacket is ideal for travel.

Windproof and water-resistant, the jacket is lined with strategic pockets for carrying gear and it’s made with eco-friendly insulation. Its sleek, lightweight design makes it an “everyday, mountain-to-city must-have.”

The jacket is designed with Dupont™ ComfortMax™ Fiberfill, a multi-layer padding for low temperatures that offers warmth down to minus-20 degrees Fahrenheit. This insulation provides up to five-times more insulation warmth than other similar fibers. Each layer of fiberfill weighs only five-to-10 grams, which provides multi-layer protection from the elements with superior performance.

Bessey said the previous retail success and popularity of the original Camper Down jacket prompted the company add new features to make it “improved and better than ever” for its reintroduction on Kickstarter.

The new design elements include multi-layer insulation with additional air pockets for increased warmth and performance. Also, a vapor-coated, durable water repellent (DWR) finish helps to keeps liquids at bay while retaining 93 percent of its warmth when wet. The jacket also has an antimicrobial finish – allowing users to do more and wash less.

With plenty of zip pockets, an adjustable hood, and cuffs and hem, users can easily carry any gear while staying comfortable. If it happens to heat up outside, the jacket can be easily folded back into its own front pocket and stored until needed.
