There’s no need for a carry-on with Adv3nture Jackets’ built-in pillow

Why bring a neck pillow on your next flight when you can just bring your jacket? No, we’re not suggesting that you ball up your outerwear and stuff it between your neck and whatever uncomfortable surface your head may rest upon — we’re suggesting a closer look at the Adv3nture Travel Jackets. The latest offering from entrepreneur and comedian Zane Lamprey, the Adv3nture Jackets have managed to raise well over $430,000 on Kickstarter as of press time from nearly 2,000 backers. And it probably has something to do with the 23 feature and functionalities these four coats purport to have.

Included in each of the jackets is a convertible travel pillow, a beverage pocket, a bottle opener, passport pocket, and sunglasses pocket. Plus, the coats feature magnetic closure pockets and the option to integrate your base layer with the top layer to help keep you extra warm.

The base layers available are the Voyageurs Hoodie and the Badlands Fleece, both of which can be zipped into the water and windproof Wind Cave Windbreaker or the cozier Glacier Parka. The hoodie seems a bit overwhelming, what with its multitude of pockets, zippers, and a beverage opener, but if you’re looking for a jacket that can do … everything, this may be for you. The Badlands Fleece, on the other hand, promises “strategically placed quilted patches [to] offer abrasion resistance on shoulders for backpack straps, and elbows for commuting and working at your desk.”

As previously mentioned, the Wind Cave Windbreaker is waterproof with its taped seams and waterproof zippers, while the Glacier Parka has 10 pockets and a faux fur collar for your winter hikes or ski days.

This isn’t the first time that Lamprey has taken to Kickstarter to raise funds for an innovative jacket. The original Adv3nture Hoodie claims to be the most successful fashion Kickstarter in history, having raised more than $1.8 million.

“Building on the enormous success of our Adv3nture Hoodie, Adv3nture Jackets have more innovations than our original hoodie, are designed with an extraordinary attention to detail, and seamlessly integrate into each other to provide varying levels of warmth and protection,” said Lamprey. “When traveling, it’s tough to be able to pick two or three jackets that will work in any weather. That’s why this jacket line is doing so well on Kickstarter. When worn alone, you’re wearing one of the warmest — and coolest — jackets you can find. When layered, they’re a game- changer.”

Of course, you should always exercise caution when backing a crowdfunding project, but if you’re intrigued by these new Adv3nture Jackets, early bird pricing starts at $99.

I had written off bicycles, until e-bikes unlocked an entire world for me
Himiway C5

I have a lot working against me when it comes to riding a traditional bicycle: collapsed foot arches, bad knees, and nerve issues that extend into my pelvic floor and make it challenging for me to sit for any extended time on a standard bicycle seat. For all those reasons, I gave up on any chance of comfortably bicycling as an adult.

But when Himiway offered to let me try its new C5 e-bike, which features a motorcycle-style saddle that is both wider and longer than the average bicycle seat, I reconsidered. I cautiously hoped it could improve my ability to enjoy bike riding. However, I didn't expect it to completely change my life for the better.
The making of an e-bike guy
From the Engwe M20 to the Ride1up Revv1, e-bikes have embraced the motorcycle aesthetic, and the larger seats that go with them. For most riders, it’s just a cool look. For me, it opened a whole new world.

I ditched my car for a month of e-biking. Here’s what I learned
Aventon Abound rider with plants and store bought items on road.

Since settling into my life as an "e-bike guy," I've been testing new bikes left and right. So when someone suggested trying to replace my car with an e-bike for a month, it didn't take much to convince me. With a growing variety of bikes at my disposal, it sounded exciting to challenge myself and to find out just how much of my normal routine could be maintained with two wheels and a battery.

Though I live in a rural county just outside of Atlanta, my townhome community is located right beside a commercial strip packed with restaurants, department stores, banks, and gyms. So while I've historically used my car to get around, I've always known I could easily reach anything I need on foot or by bike in a mere few minutes if needed. Now, it was time to put that knowledge into action.

Imagine this: The summer heat is baking down on you from above. You're close to overheating, and you desperately need to cool down. The problem is you don't have quick access to a vehicle, nor can you retreat indoors to cool down quickly with central AC. Drinking some water and staying hydrated might help, to a point, but otherwise, you're stuck in that heat, dare we say, suffering. That's the perfect time to throw on TORRAS' COOLiFY Cyber, a cutting-edge wearable air conditioner. Wait, what? That's right, it slips right over your neck to keep you cool and comfortable. Thanks to the 6,000mAh rechargeable battery built-in, it can provide up to 13 hours of cooling on a single charge. But that's not all it does.

So, it's incredibly versatile and one of the most innovative personal comfort solutions on the market. Let's talk a little more about why you might use it.
