Fed up with buying multiple layers of clothing for different trips? Heading off backpacking and need to travel light? This five-in-one jacket could be the perfect solution.

The outer layer is breathable, light and waterproof, with zipin layers to adapt the jacket for different situations. Simply add extra layers the colder it gets and pack them down when you don’t need them.

Each layer is made from high-performance materials that promise to keep you warm and dry, whatever the conditions. For active pursuits you’ll be pleased to hear it’s breathable, too, so you won’t start to overheat and sweat out.

So far so good, but then you find out the price. The whole package will cost $1,300 when it is released after a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Even for a high-tech piece of kit, that is a huge amount of money — out of reach for most hobbyist mountaineers, let alone young backpackers who wanted a convenient jacket.

It’s hard to imagine why the jacket costs so much and whether it will be worth it is anyone’s guess. However, delivery is scheduled for March 2019, so we will soon be able to see what all of the hype is about.

Culinary Artistry

Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
