What is it?

Design Council award winning, patented, pocket system that can be added to existing jacket designs. The simple structure means any jacket can be stashed into its pocket, turned into a bag for when the conditions change.

Why is it different?

The system allows the wearer to access the same pocket space in jacket and bag mode. Perfect for keeping access to small items like phones, keys, wallets, running gels, ski goggles, ski passes, or curios depending on the application.

 

Benefits to brands and brand groups.

  • Patented in UK, extended to USA.
  • Design Council Award winning.
  • Negligible expense to add to existing designs.
  • Simple to add to existing designs.
  • Range of applications – running, urban, travel, snow sports, children’s jackets.

  • Many different angles for marketing.

 

Key benefits to users

  • Keep access to your small items and stay comfortable, adjusting to changes in;
    • the weather.
    • Being indoors/outdoors – pubs, shops.
    • effort and perspiration.
  • Keep your hands free without anything tied around your waist; feel free to keep going.
  • Keep items close to the body so they don’t swing about; less distraction from enjoying your activity.

Thanks to the Design Council, as of November 2017 the full UK Patent has been granted and extended to the USA. This is not a simple design patent that can be altered, it is a full development of technology and process, that can be applied to any apparel with a pocket.

Having come up with the concept for travel, several other markets for the pocket adaption have been actively suggested by kit enthusiasts, customers and design professionals. This includes applications for fitness running, triathletes,  jackets for children, snow sports, equestrian and weatherproofs for festivals.

You can be ‘hands free’ and never have to carry or tie your waterproof or insulating layer around your waist again – or carry a rucksack just to put your jacket in.

I’m investigating possibilities, with cutting edge brands, to collaborate on products that suit their own market… get in touch. The full patent details are available on Espacenet.
