(UPDATE 7/13 – last chance to back this travel jacket is Saturday July 14th)

Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about Fluent Forever (an app to learn languages), and the Voyage Travel Bag among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen

Travel related kickstarters:


Today I wanted to talk a bit about the Langly Field Jacket – which bills itself as THE BEST WEATHERPROOF JACKET FOR TRAVEL OR PHOTOGRAPHY (yes, in all caps)

Langly Field Jacket features

The Langly Field Jacket bills itself as made by and for photographers and avid travelers and features a form fitting style.  It’s a 3 layer weatherproof jacket with protection from rain, wind and snow

Here are a few pics of the jacket

It’s completely seam sealed and has snap-flap pockets and an underarm vent for warmer weather

Here’s a video showing off several of the Langly travel and photography jacket features

Langly Field Jacket backing levels and cost

The Langly Field Jacket is not yet fully funded (~$16,000 out of the $50,000 goal), and will only go forward if it’s fully funded by the end of the project date (July 14th). Here are a few of the levels that you can back the project at (all prices in USD)

  • $10 for a Langly Watch Cap
  • $289 for one Langly Field Jacket for Travel (Super Early Bird)
  • $325 for one Langly Field Jacket for Photographers (Super Early Bird).  This additionally contains a few extra accessories good for photographers who are trying

The future retail price of the jacket is $435 so you’re saving a decent chunk off of MSRP

Again, here is the link to back the Langly Field photography or travel jacket kickstarter – you have until July 14th to back it
