TONS of features for the Urban Biker!

Clear hood, reflective profiles, mud back flap, waterproof pockets, directional arrows, removable patch, first aid information and protection from wind and rain. ALL in one jacket.

We have integrated all this features to give you more protection, more visibility and more safety when you cycle around town.

Elegance and practicality: an unbreakable bond.

We've worked hard to create a discreet stylish jacket. The reflective strips allow for a clean design resulting in a product which is perfect for use anywhere.

From the young professional to the trend savvy student; anyone working on two wheels can use the Jungle Jacket in their daily lives!

Why should I choose Jungle Jacket?

The Italian origins of the Jungle Jacket are evident in our great attention to detail and passion for this product. For the Jungle Jacket we used the best waterproof fabric on the market, which guarantees up to 15,000mm of water protection from the rain.

Jungle Jacket is completely developed and produced in Italy.

The Italian origins of the Jungle Jacket are evident in our great attention to detail and passion for this product. For the Jungle Jacket we used the best waterproof fabric on the market, which guarantees up to 15,000mm of water protection from the rain.

'Stamperia Alicese', a 100% Italian company based in Biella (Piedmont) and leaders in the technical clothing field, will be in charge of the production and packaging of the jackets at the end of the campaign. We decided to use their vast experience to ensure the Jungle Jacket is finished with the superior quality it deserves.

The ankle and key chain reflectors were made by the creative team MNMUR, who are pioneers in the field of creative recycling using inner tubes and all types of tyres. We love them! You can find their bags and accessories on theri facebook page or https://www.facebook.com/mnmur.design/?fref=ts or at http://www.mnmur.com.

​The material is unique and incredibly light!

The Jungle Jacket is made from Plastotex which belongs to the Tekseries® line of fabrics. Consisting of fibre polyurethane, nylon and elastane, it is a waterproof and wind-proof fabric designed to be used year round. Heat taped seams gives even more protection to bad weather.

Another great advantage of this material is that it's lightweight. Despite the high level of protection, the Jungle Jacket only weighs 860 grams!

Change patches, change styles! Whenever you want!

​Who created the Jungle Jacket?

After years spent working with textile industries and big achievements obtained in the sportswear field and industrial production, we joined our forces and created a whole new product line. Our experiences made possible the beginning of a new brand with a different approach to products and design.

The development team is composed of:

Alberto Gallo, marketing expert and hardcore urban biker

Ludovico Spagnolo, sporty communications professional

Davide Oddone, engineer between videos and food

Lorenzo Diego Carrera, a young film maker with a passion for singing and drums

Stefano Lattanzio, a freelance graphic designer who lives between Turin and Fribourg

Carlo Camorali, unchained creative talent and teacher at Polytechnic of Turin

And, as you imagine, we can't wait to see our project became reality.

​Contribute now to the success of the project!

Smart Payment available

We designed a pocket on the right wrist that allows you to use all latest smart payments technologies. What does it mean? That you can place there your smart devices (phone, card or token) and get your receipt from enabled systems with one simple movement. Or rent a bike, buy from vending machines, open the garage door and so on.

Do-it-yourself 2.0

We wanted to create a feature to replace the handlebar bell but in a useful and interactive way so we decided to put a totally new whistle on the left sleeve.

The whistle is yours to create from scratch, using a 3D printer and a file that you can download for free HERE.

After the download, put the file on a USB stick and take it to wherever there's a 3D printer. You can see a map of 3D printers near your you at https://www.3dhubs.com.

Q&A

I decided to change my reward, how do I update my choice?

Enter the private site Eppela and click on "Rewards". In that section you can modify your preferences and change your bid.

Will the model that I see in the video will be identical to what I receive at the end of the campaign?

It will not be identical because the prototype used in the video has been slightly modified and adapted. The main changes concern the front pocket which has been replaced by a Hydro zip, and the reflective strips will be black (which will only reflect when hit by light). Further changes were made to the hood to maximize side visibility and make adjustments easier, we've altered the zip, chosen the finest materials, and modified the visor. We are sure you'll be amazed by the developments!

Why should I buy a Jungle Jacket and not another bike jacket?

Simply because there's no equivalent product on the market. An "all in one" solution to problems faced on two wheels.

I just placed my order. When do I get the Jungle Jacket?

Orders will be processed by the end of July. The Jacket will be shipped by the end of September. In the meantime, you can follow the updates and the progress of our developers at www.junglejacket.com and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/junglejacket or see us behind the scene on Instagram @instajunglejacket.

What about the color?

A stunning black.

And what about the sizes?

Jungle Jacket is a UNISEX product and will be available in S / M / L / XL size.

I've received my Jacket, can I change the size?

No problem! Send an email to [email protected] with the subject "change size" but remember that both shipping costs will be charged to you due to stock limitations.
