The new feature-loaded version of Coalatree’s beloved featherlight, toasty-warm Camper Down Hooded Jacket has raised more than $320,000 as the crowdfunding campaign enters its final days on Kickstarter.

“We appreciate the tremendous support we’ve received from the thousands of backers on Kickstarter, who will be among the first to enjoy the comfort and versatility of this cool-looking, super lightweight jacket,” said Coalatree Founder and CEO Jacob Charles Bessey. “We enjoyed previous retail success with our Camper Down jacket, but these backers will be the first to check out the new features we’ve added during our reintroduction of the jacket on Kickstarter."

Bessey says the material the Coalatree Team used to create the Camper Down Hooded Jacket ensures users can wear it and still move at pace as if it were summer, while it incorporates the technology that will also keep them 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.

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.

Coalatree Camper Hooded Jacket features include:

  • Reflective hood screenprint
  • Adjustable hood
  • Chin guard
  • Media pockets with headphone port
  • Internal stuff pocket (which fits a flask when not in use)
  • Quilted brick pattern
  • Adjustable hem
  • Zipper hoods
  • Adjustable Velcro Cuffs
  • Glove pockets

The Coalatree Camper Hooded Jacket is also sustainably made from bluesign®-approved and recycled materials, so users will know they are making a positive impact on the environment with every purchase.

Coalatree also contributes to the communities in which it works through its #Blanketstothehomeless Give Back program, providing surplus fabric to create warm blankets for the homeless in its hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah. The company also partners with local organizations to maintain and protect hiking and biking trails from watershed.
