The Feather by Versatyl Wear is claimed to be the world's lightest multi-utility jacket that has been created by an ex-IBM engineer. Weighing less than 179 grams, it comes with a hoodie, has a water-resistant shell as well as a secret compartment that allows it to be folded into its own pouch. The multi-utility jacket can be used on different occasions.

The crowdfunded jacket being launched on Fueladream is the third innovative product by Versatyl Wear after Ultimate Travel Jacket and the Waterproof Bomber Jacket.

The Feather is also mobility friendly as it folds into a secret compartment to turn into a little pouch making it easy to carry even to a business meeting. A pack of 2 jackets is available at a reasonable price and Saneen the creator hopes this will create massive demand for it.

Ex-IBM engineer Saneen Javali, the brains behind Versatyl Wear, says said, "It is exciting to put together the World’s lightest utility jacket. Crowdfunding is a game changer which has helped me build a brand and go to the market easily."

Ranganath Thota, founder and CEO Fueladream said, "Saneen always surprises us with his innovations. We are sure that Indian customers will be delighted with the Feather and make this another very successful campaign." (KD)
