The Xip3 jacket was conceived during a cold, spring day outing to New York’s, American Museum of Natural History.
While lugging her family’s coats under the herd of elephants in the Akeley Hall of African Mammals, the inventor, Carine Elen began to ponder a practical way for kids to carry their own coats.
The concept for Xip3 was born while Carine perspired her way through the extraordinary, 98 degree live, tropical butterfly exhibit in the museum’s Butterfly Conservatory.
Xip3’s practical design enables you to do more with less by effortlessly converting the jacket into a backpack or a pillow with the ease of a zipper pull. Xip3 transforms every sport and leisure activity. Xip3 enhances outings and travel by train, plane and automobile. Xip3 lightens your load at the mall. Xip3 keeps you from overheating and saves you from lugging the jacket around. With Xip3, you’ll never have to snooze without your very own pillow!
