SYNC launches latest Kickstarter campaign for Engineered Down Jacket, reaches goal in 8 hours

by Geof Ochs on March 12, 2019

At SYNC, we love Kickstarter for it's ability to help small businesses launch products. As an independent, Colorado based company, we can gauge demand before placing huge orders. Gaining valuable insight into sizes and colors helps us order intellegently. Those benefits to us mean we can offer early backers up to 50% off retail pricing. It's win, win!

The Engineered Down Jacket is our latest foray into the Kickstarter world. Using a brand new technology that removes stitching from baffle construction, we are able to create the stretchiest skiing down possible. Removing those stitch holes also means water, wind, and snow stay out, combined with YKK Aquaguard zippers, this is also much more weatherproof than the traditional down jacket.

Check out the Kickstarter Engineered Down campaign page for the complete story, along with a video created by our friends at FlipArt media.

Thanks to the quick backing, this jacket will go into production and will be available for $399 this fall. During the Kickstarter, grab one at an early backer price of $199 while supplies last.

Sync Neckies

Sync's race suits are the absolute best, and the matching neckies looks great, and are a great way to keep both neck and face warm on cold days!

Kellen Blue Adult Race Suit

Sync race suits are the absolute best - Exceptional quality, with fast and sleek design. The padding size and locations are perfect, and the suit fits perfect. The superb quality of the suit's material should provide many seasons of wear.

Shelter Ski Parka Rocks!!!!

Had to update my Ski Racer's coat for next year. This was an awesome edition. He can't wait until the snow flies. Thanks again


The material you have chosen is excellent, but the sewing matching from arms to the body (shoulder ) is done very poorly and suggests quality control is not in place.
I can send pics if you would like.


Hi Steve,

Thank you so much for your recent purchase and review. I am so sorry to hear you are not fully satisfied with the quality of your gear! Please keep an eye out for an email from We certainly want to resolve this for you and make sure you are stoked on your SYNC gear!

Great shirt

Super comfortable, breathes and wicks well, and the fit is great. I like that it forms to your body and flexes with your movements. This shirt is great for working out, wearing around the house, or out on the town.
