Ultimate is an adjective that gets tacked onto titles to make items sound more appealing than they really are. Although when you read about all the features included on the Ultimate Lumen jacket, you will come to realise there’s no word more appropriate to describe it. From the innovative minds at Project Shadow, The Ultimate Lumen Jacket suits all the needs of the urban traveller. Spread across three designs – Shadow, Ghost and Olympian – the jacket can glow in the dark, is reflective and water repellent.
But wait, there’s more! The jacket is super lightweight with a mesh lining that vents the chest and back for maximum airflow to keep the user dry. A large pocket on the side can hold a water bottle, while another smaller pocket on the chest can hold a phone, keeping it hidden and dry. A detachable magnetic earphone patch keeps the earbuds secure instead of dangling around the neck when you’re not using them. The patch is compatible with all earphones.
While Project Shadow have designed the jacket for the urban traveller, they point out that its also incredibly practical for camping, jogging and commuting. The Ultimate Lumen jacket is campaigning right now on Kickstarter with some great discounts for ‘early bird’ backers.
