Mavari is a cleverly conceived "surf cloak" that uses a triple-layer fabric to keep you warm and dry in bad weather, and dry you off after a session in the water. Its versatile design also means that, like the Vamoose jacket, it can be folded into a backpack.

Designed primarily for surfers, the multi-purpose Mavari would also be suitable for other watersports enthusiasts and sporty folk in general.

The reversible cloak is made from a patent pending triple layer fabric which has "waterproof, wind-proof, absorbent, wicking, breathable and antibacterial properties." One side is a waterproof polypropelene, the other side is an absorbent microfiber, and in between the two is a breathable membrane. Completing construction is a water-resistant coating, and rust-free buttons and zips.

This all means Mavari can be used a number of different ways: to dry yourself off after a session in the water, to hide your blushes while you change in and out of your wetsuit, to stay warm and dry in light rain, or even transformed into a backpack.

Mavari is expected to retail for US$215, but a pledge of $145 should be enough to secure one through Kickstarter, where the project has raised funds well in excess of its $30,000 goal. Delivery is slated for April 2015.

The one guy looks really hostile, I suppose because he knows he's got a water snuggi strapped on back there. I steered as wide of this as I could.
