With the alarming levels of outside temperature, the chilly mountain peaks seem the ultimate escape. Nevertheless, it’s best to be prepared to take on the challenges of hiking and mountain trekking. It might be colder than you expect. As in, way colder.

Also, your backpack might not store everything you need in a quick to get to items way. Rising a substantial amount of support on Kickstarter, Apricoat is a catch-all traveler’s jacket. As the table of contents show, the jacket is indeed stuffed with technology.

Apricoat jacket – exploded view

Starting from the top, there is an inflatable pillow inside the hood, accompanied by a blindfold. A set of fastening cords and quite a bunch of pockets find their way throughout the body of the coat. Every pocket is designed to fit a particular object: a flashlight, ID card, phone, key, sunglasses, and a pen.

Honestly, I’m pretty sure I don’t need a pocket that can just fit a pen. However, the rest looks useful, especially since pockets are not placed at random, but in such way that will evenly distribute the weight of whatever you’re carrying.

A Safety Anchor emergency harness is installed at the waistline. The anchor is able to hold up to 400 lbs (180kg). There is a designated hydration compartment ready to quench your thirst when you’re hanging for dear life, suspended at waist level by the Safety Anchor.

Apricoat is available in multiple sizes, from S through 3XL for men. If you act fast, you can still get the jacket for $119 (40% off the retail price).
