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.

Perfect ski parka

Warm, dry, and comfortable, and fits perfectly.

Great Pant

Great Pant, wish the inseam was an inch or two longer though, or you offered longs.

Jacket Feedback

Fits great and very functional. I recommend this jacket.

New favorite

Daughter wanted a coat for those cold gate training nights and race days.. something warm and long to wear over her GS suit , and had been eyeing mine for some time ( I coach, and this is my go to coat). As a 5'7" - 110lbs teenager who wears women's Small, the unisex XS fits her perfectly. She now also uses as an all around pre/post training coat for cold nights in our northwest ski resorts. Huge pockets, and helmet friendly hood.. Her new go to coat.

Training Short

Everything is perfect about these shorts. Great fit and quality
