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

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:

Here’s a video showing off some of the different options and features of the Whistler self-healing 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

What do you think of this jacket?  Planning on backing this?  Leave your experience in the comments!
