Crowdsourcing Mornings: Langly Field Photographers Jacket

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

The inspiration for the Langly Field Jacket comes from one of the most iconic utilitarian designs of all time, the M-65 field jacket. Originally developed by the military to function in any climate, the M-65 keeps cool on hot days, warm on cold nights, and dry during monsoons. The four large pockets secure all your necessities within easy reach, while the jacket’s clean lines lend it a timeless quality that still influences contemporary style.  Their jacket features multiple reinforced snap-flap pockets; an adjustable hood and cuffs; a wind and water-resistant shell; and only the finest hardware available. This garment shines in any weather you may encounter in the city — or on the road.

Starting from scratch, they engineered our own state of the art materials.  Their proprietary weather-shield technology keeps moisture and wind outside the shell while still letting your body breathe, wicking away perspiration to keep you warm and dry. In addition, every seam on the jacket is fully tape-sealed, ensuring a completely weatherproof shell.

Mobility and comfort were also top priorities. Their raglan sleeve design offers unrestricted range of motion without bulk or bunching, retaining their ideal silhouette. Downpours will roll right off the adjustable wireframe hood; its pull-cord system lets you simply and accurately adjust the hood shape and size to your liking. In warmer weather, zippered vents under the arms make it easy to let off steam.

Tailored pockets cater specifically to personal devices and the modern globetrotter’s need to access them. Pass-through channels covertly route headphone or battery charger cables from the exterior to the interior upper pockets. They’ve also lined the pockets with an RFID-blocking material to keep your passport, credit cards, and travels documents secure. In photo configuration mode, the Langly Field Jacket features a tether system that can be attached inside the front pockets. The system keeps as many as five much-used accessories at hand.

Every single component, every single process has been considered and measured to make everyday life seamless whether you’re exploring beyond the boundaries or on location getting the perfect shot.
