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.

Great Product

I wear them everyday, as I used to cut into my liners and skisocks on a regular basis and got scared to cut open my calves. They fit well and also keep your calves warm and snow free when you decide to not put your suit above your boot in slalom.

Essential for any racer

Perfect for training and keeping the elements off. Lightweight and great fit. Essential piece of clothing to keep in your bag at all times.

Men's 8120 Insulated Pant

Great quality, warm, functional, & good looking. What more do you want? I love this pant.

Best Bag Ever!!

Ski racing is one of those sports where you are always carrying a lot of gear. With the Locker pack, you will never have to worry about trying to fit everything in. There will never be one of those mornings where you have to debate what gets brought to the hill and what gets left behind, so you will always be prepared. The intense zippers also make it, so you know everything is protected in there. It is definitely the best bag I have ever used!

Game Changer

My arms have never been covered in more bruises in my entire life. I needed to figure out how to make bashing gates and skiing fast my top priority and not get disrupted by the pain. Once I got the impact top, everything changed. Now my arms are able to take days of GS training without a brutal beating, and I can focus on my skiing. The top fits perfectly under my suit and provides padding in all the right places.
