Ever wondered why there isn’t a rain coat for your legs? After all, when conditions change, wouldn’t it be nice to just zip on or off the same protection for your lower half as you can for your upper body? Well, in a classic case of “why hasn’t someone done this sooner”, the VEAR Legs Jacket presents just that, and it’s quite well thought out, too.
Available in two materials, they start at just $89 in their Kickstarter Super Early Bird deals for the basic version. Or opt for the Performance version and you get a higher tech fabric. Both are waterproof and windproof, feature reflective sections on the lower leg and fold up into their own pocket. Oh, and they can be put in on under 15 seconds…
The material protects you from the elements and fits over most jeans or dress pants. It’s also breathable, so you won’t be soaking yourself from the inside out just to keep the rain off. They use YKK zippers the full length of the legs on the outside, letting you easily zip them into place without having to remove your shoes.
The project just launched on Kickstarter and is well on their way to meeting their modest $22,000 funding goal. If they hit bigger targets, they’ll add more sizes, colors and even a kids version.
