Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about the Travel Bag buddy organizer, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the SuperTank power tank charger, 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 Whistler travel jacket – which bills itself as a self-healing windbreaker. It is currently on Kickstarter and you have only about a week left to back it (it expires on November 7th)

All Kickstarter / Indiegogo links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.

Whistler self-healing windbreaker features

My first question about the Whistler self-healing windbreaker was what did “self-healing” mean. It turns out that the jacket has a way to repair small puncture holes, allowing you to hike or off-road without worrying about getting your jacket ripped

Here are a few pictures of the Whistler windbreaker:

Whistler windbreaker backing levels and cost

The Whistler windbreaker is on Kickstarter and has currently raised over USD$117,000 from a goal of only about USD$50,000. Here are a few of the levels that you can back the project at

  • $72 for one Whistler windbreaker
  • $140 for two Whistler windbreakers

Again, here is the link to back the Whistler windbreaker – you have less than a week to back it before it expires and currently all orders are scheduled to ship in March 2020
