Alomar rider’s jacket transforms into a backpack for your gear
By Mc Staff
New Alomar Jacket transforms from a fully armored riding jacket to a useful backpack to carry all your gear.
Here’s an interesting product for motorcyclists; a fully armored riding jacket with a special pocket to hold your laptop that, once you get to your destination, transforms into a backpack to carry your riding gear and your laptop computer. Just as intriguing as the product is its online launch on Fundable, a “crowdfunding” site designed to help capitalize startups by generating paid product orders from early adopters of new technology.
Motorcyclist Will Schroter, founder and CEO of Fundable, alerted us to the product and provided the following information:
Gone are the days of sacrificing safety for convenience. Now, motorcyclists can have it all.
The Alomar jacket transforms into a fully functional backpack to carry helmets, riding gear, and valuables in seconds. Now, riders can stay safe on the road and not worry about their gear being stolen once parked.
The first multifunctional jacket of its kind, the Alomar combines unprecedented storage capabilities with the functionality of standard road-worthy jackets by incorporating CCA approved removable shoulder, elbow, and spleen guards, front and rear reflectors, adjustable drawstrings, and a sleek design. Weighing only approximately four pounds and made from water resistant 600 Denier Polyester Nylon, it can be used in all weather conditions. The Alomar offers storage capabilities even while worn as a jacket for storing important flat lying gear such as a tablet or laptop.
The Alomar is being launched on the crowdfunding platform Fundable in order to raise the funds necessary to rev up into production. A successful fundraise will put the Alomar onto the market and immediately improve the lives of motorcyclists everywhere.
Created by bikers for bikers, the Alomar is the solution motorcyclists have been waiting for. Pre-orders of the jacket can be made through an online pledge at http://www.fundable.com/alomar.
