Cubed Travel Jacket
If there’s one thing to take the drudgery out of the wet and drab rainy season, it’s a sick rain jacket with enough pockets to stash your entire EDC and then some. The Cubed Travel Jacket from Clothing Arts has the features to stand up to harsh downpours and a low-profile, street-ready aesthetic to keep you and your gear dry in style. Clothing Arts’ design philosophy is something we EDCers can get behind: “it begins with pockets.” And on the Cubed, you get way more of them to work with compared to traditional outdoors rain shells.
It’s got two Napoleon chest pockets that you can access from the outside of the jacket. The key here is you won’t need to undo the main zipper to get to your gear, which can be especially risky if you want to keep your core warm and dry. The Cubed boasts six more interior pockets for your less frequently used gear as well as travel essentials like your Passport and documents. To secure it all, built-in clips connect to the zipper pulls and lock your gear in place.
While Clothing Arts believes it begins with pockets, it must end in the details. The Cubed features hallmark qualities of technical outerwear and EDC gear alike: functional materials, durable construction, and minimalist design. It’s made with a DWR-treated, breathable/waterproof eVent membrane for high-performance rain and wind protection. The zippers and even the taped seams on the jackets are waterproof too. A detachable, stowable hood, multiple adjustment cinches, and an articular fit for improved range of motion round out this feature-packed tech jacket. You won’t have to raid your rainy day fund too hard for one either, with discounted early bird pledges still available on the Cubed’s fully funded campaign below.
