Forget the bank. Kickstarter proves itself to be the number one source of funding for creatives and entrepreneurs yet again. Bergaffe has taken to the popular crowdfunding platform to raise capital for its new and incredibly functional outerwear, raising over 200K in the first two weeks of its campaign.\r\n\r\nBergaffe\u2019s outerwear is 100% windproof, 100% waterproof, built from recycled materials and packs an impressive number of features. The lightweight outerwear fashion will keep you warm and functional on your next outdoor adventure. Bergaffe hails from Austria, so it knows a thing or two about the cold.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe explorer Primaloft Jacket is designed to keep you warm and dry in colder climates and the long winter. It\u2019s extremely lightweight and soft, made using water-repellent Sympatex \u2013 a special membrane that absorbs water and sweat vapour then removes it through the clothing. This keeps the body warm and dry even in extreme situations. Other standout features include a reinforced aluminium coating on the inside, built-in gloves, a phone pocket, goggle pocket, storm hood and fanny pack.\r\n\r\nThe Ultimate Active Jacket is a lightweight, 3-layer, all-around performance jacket designed for mountain activities. It\u2019s waterproof, windproof and also features a breathable Sympatex active membrane. The Ultimate Jacket packs underarm zip vents, anti-slip protection, a high windbreak collar and phone pocket with integrated headphone access; all optimised to keep you protected and functional while high in the mountains.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Ultimate Active Pants are the ideal companion for low and high-altitude ski mountaineering or alpine tours giving you the wind and water protection you need. With internal RV zipper ventilation, hook and loop fasters for adjustable sizing, gaiter hook and loop fasteners and linkable snow protection, The Ultimate Active Pants are, well, the ultimate active pants! You better believe they also feature an active Sympatex membrane.\r\n\r\nBergaffe is campaigning via Kickstarter to raise the necessary funds for its active outerwear. With over two weeks of the campaign remaining, Bergaffe has amassed an impressive AUD $217,000. You can pre-order the active outerwear now for up to 63% off the future retail price.
