We’re very grateful for the support from travelers so far for our Flite Jacket, and we look forward to reaching even more crowdfunders as the campaign continues through the month.

Presales of the versatile new Flite Jacket from lifestyle brand Thin Air Global Pty Ltd have surpassed the initial crowdfunding goal – raising more than $12,000 so far on Kickstarter.

“We’re very grateful for the support from travelers so far for our Flite Jacket, and we look forward to reaching even more crowdfunders as the campaign continues through the month,” said Thin Air Global Founder Daniel Hooper. “Our backers will be the first to enjoy the Flite Jacket, which offers lighter packing, greater comfort and ensures you can carry your personal belongings securely…and at an affordable price.”

Featuring multiple zipped pockets, the Flite Jacket is designed with soft polyester and spandex material that gives wearers an experience that is light, breathable and durable – and it has a UV protectant. The Flite Jacket also has four zippered pockets specifically designed to securely hold items typically carried while traveling, including cash, chargers, headphones and wallets. The jacket has a hood, along with sleeve thumb holes for extra warmth and comfort.
It can also be folded so it fits inside one of the zippered pockets, making it easy to store until its needed next – and reducing excess bulk in carry-on bags.

Available in black and grey, the Flite Jacket comes in men’s (Small to 3XL) and women’s (sizes 6/8 up to 22/24).

As an additional incentive for crowdfunders, Thin Air is including an RFID (radio-frequency identification) protected passport wallet along with the jacket during presales on Kickstarter. The slim wallet includes a neat size pen, two card holders and one boarding pass holder.

Hooper came up with the idea for the jacket while visiting a shop in Melbourne, Australia before taking a trip to China – developing a lightweight jacket that would be comfortable on the flight and practical for travelling between cold and hot climates.

“While the Flite Jacket was specially designed as a lightweight jacket for comfortable travel, we had activewear in mind, too…so it can be worn when jogging, exploring and playing sports, and for everyday casual wear,” Hooper said.
