The Minimalist Brand is made up of Shawn, Alphonso and Edwin. Together they started out designing minimalist wallets, launching their first Kickstarter campaign in 2014. “Fast forward to 2016, we felt that we were limiting our creative juices to just wallets; we could do more. Since then, we have been designing, tinkering and prototyping all sorts of crazy ideas and bringing the best of our innovations to you.”
Using water-resist, anti-odor and heat regulating technology, the boys are equipping the traveller with a cover-up that comes with plenty of practical features.
“The jacket incorporates convenience and cutting edge technology to ensure wearers enjoy optimal comfort during any activity in multiple weather conditions. It is highly versatile, uniquely portable, and the sheer, lightweight design allows you to fold it into a small, space-saving bundle when not in use.
Available in black, blue and grey, the jacket has an exterior made of waterproof fabric, even the zippers. It’s lined with organic bamboo fabric that has a variety of premium qualities. Bamboo fabric is breathable, has thermal regulating and insulating qualities, and contains innate anti-bacterial properties that enable the fabric to fight the growth of bacteria that leads to odors.
A zippered, detachable hood is integrated into jacket’s design that’s equipped with a sleeping mask. A hidden zippered pocket contains a travel pillow that’s easily inflated with just two breaths and is equipped with a quick-deflate mechanism. Wearers will find a pair of attached hidden gloves for warmth that fold back under the cuffs when they’re not needed or individuals can simply keep their hands toasty in the warming pockets.
The minimalist jacket is designed with eight utility pockets for essentials that include a wallet, passport, pen and keys. The phone pocket is large enough to accommodate an iPhone 7 Plus with room to spare and the pocket for sunglasses includes a frame loop to hold them securely in place. A cable opening facilitates earphone management and the jacket contains a magnetic earphone holder. A combination detachable clip and bottle opener completes the jacket.”
