Coalatree Bridges the Gap Between Function and Fashion with the Introduction of the Most Sustainable, All-Purpose Camper Down Jacket
Following a very successful launch in retail outlets, Coalatree has unveiled a new feature-loaded version of its beloved featherlight, toasty-warm, Coalatree Camper Down Hooded Jacket on Kickstarter.
Made from recycled and upcycled materials, the Camper Down Hooded Jacket is an all-purpose jacket that combines the warmth and comfort of a down jacket with the style and function that makes it ideal for outdoor adventure, travel and city living.
Windproof and water-resistant, the jacket is lined with strategic pockets for carrying gear and it’s is made with eco-friendly insulation. Its sleek, lightweight design makes it an everyday, mountain to city must-have.
“Our super lightweight material ensures you can wear the jacket and still move at pace as if it were summer, while incorporating technology to ensure you stay toasty even on the coldest winter days,” said Coalatree CEO and Founder, Jacob Charles Bessey. “The Camper Hooded Jacket looks cool whether you’re walking around town or hiking in the mountains. It’s also ideal for travel because it can be packed down into a tiny pouch for easy transport, or a comfortable travel pillow.”
The jacket is designed with Dupont™ ComfortMax™ Fiberfill, a multi-layer padding for low temperatures that offers warmth down to minus-20 degrees Fahrenheit. This insulation provides up to five-times more insulation warmth than other similar fibers. Each layer of fiberfill weighs only five-to-10 grams, which provides multi-layer protection from the elements with superior performance.
Bessey said the previous retail success and popularity of the original Camper Down jacket prompted the company add new features to make it “improved and better than ever” for its reintroduction on Kickstarter.
The new design elements include multi-layer insulation with additional air pockets for increased warmth and performance. Also, a vapor-coated, durable water repellent (DWR) finish helps to keeps liquids at bay while retaining 93 percent of its warmth when wet. The jacket also has an antimicrobial finish – allowing users to do more and wash less.
With plenty of zip pockets, an adjustable hood, and cuffs and hem, users can easily carry any gear while staying comfortable. If it happens to heat up outside, the jacket can be easily folded back into its own front pocket and stored until needed.

Coalatree also contributes to the communities in which it works through its #Blanketstothehomeless Give Back program, providing surplus fabric to create warm blankets for the homeless in its hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah. The company also partners with local organizations to maintain and protect hiking and biking trails from watershed.
