I found that there weren’t a lot of options for a functional lightweight jacket specifically for travel, and that’s when the idea of the Flite Jacket was born.

Thin Air Global Pty Ltd, a travel and lifestyle brand, has introduced the versatile Flite Jacket on Kickstarter.

Ideal for travel, featuring multiple zipped pockets, the Flite Jacket is designed with soft polyester and spandex material – offering wearers an experience that is light, breathable and durable – and has a UV protectant.

Thin Air Global Founder Daniel Hooper, who combined his experience with supplying travel products for global retailers and his love of travel to create the brand, came up with the idea while visiting a shop in Melbourne before a regular trip to China.

“I was on the lookout for a lightweight jacket that would be comfortable on the flight, but also practical for travelling between cold and hot climates,” Hooper said. “I found that there weren’t a lot of options for a functional lightweight jacket specifically for travel, and that’s when the idea of the Flite Jacket was born.”

The Flite Jacket has four zippered pockets specifically designed to safely and 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.

The jacket 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.

“This jacket offers lighter packing, greater comfort and ensures you can carry your personal belongings securely…and at an affordable price,” Hooper said. “However, we designed the jacket with active wear in mind, too, so it can be worn when jogging, exploring and playing sports…and for everyday casual wear.”

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.
