Travel Shirt with WaterProof Pockets for your Passport and Cell Phone. Also Pickpocket Proof Pockets for your cash and credit cards.
About this project
Hello. I’m Peter Klika the designer of the World’s Best Travel Shirt. I’m 70 years old and have been traveling safely to exotic destinations for over 50 years. From Kathmandu to Timbuktu, from Angkor Watt to Machu Picchu. I designed this shirt for function not fashion, but it looks really good.
It’s designed to keep your valuables safe from the weather and pickpockets. It also keep you organized when you are tired or racing to catch a train or plane. It features two waterproof pockets for your passport and cellphone and two “triple secure” pockets for your cash and credit cards. And there is a separate hidden security pocket, sunglasses and pen pocket, and more.
The material is comfortable 60% polyester and 40% cotton blend that is stain and odor resistant. It has a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 30 and is light weight at 9 oz. (average). It will dry in 90 minutes in direct sunlight or overnight in about 8 hours.
Risks and challenges
I am already making this shirt in Nepal but now want to manufacture it in the U.S.A. The design is perfected and the subject of both a design and utility patent for the waterproof pockets, etc. I have engaged a pattern maker and cutting and sewing operation to make the shirts in Seattle, Washington. I don’t anticipate any production problems or other delays.
