Fullframe Design has introduced lightest reversible jacket, DuoTek, which has generated more than $25,000, five times its initial goal, on Kickstarter. The reflective, reversible and ultralight jacket is an affordable alternative to more expensive versions on the market. Made of high-tech fabrics, it is only jacket with day to night features in the world.

DuoTek’s ultra-performance tech fabric is used to make it the lightest reversible jacket available. DuoTek is the first jacket to make one side reflective at night while the other side offers protection from ultraviolet light (UV) during the daytime.

“Adding pockets and designs on one jacket is not that hard, but it’s very difficult to add features on one fabric while making it still ultralight and affordable…and we are the first and only one to achieve it in the industry,” said Fullframe design founder Jenetta Battle. “While we were amazed by reflective jackets and their ability to keep people visible during nighttime activities such as night running, cycling, and general outdoor wear, the ones on the market were either extremely expensive or sometimes impractical to wear during the daytime. To come up with a better alternative, we developed DuoTek.”

“Making a jacket super lightweight is a simple task, while making a reversible jacket super-lightweight is extremely difficult,” Battle said. “However, we achieved that goal. The DuoTek Jacket weighs as much as an orange, which makes it the lightest reversible jacket in the world.”

Each jacket is equipped with five waterproof pockets and durable YKK Zippers, making DuoTek literally 100 per cent waterproof from the inside to the outside. It’s also engineered to be windproof, breathable and stretchable due to the patented ultra-performance tech fabric.

The DuoTek is made of high-tech fabrics while offering a simplistic design at an excellent value. The reflective side of the jacket is grey, with the other side in black – with two styles of jackets available in men and women’s sizes. (SV)
