Light-up Lumo clothing returns to Kickstarter with new jacket, gilet, and bag

Chichester-based company hoping to raise £30,000 on return to crowdfunding site

Upcoming events

After successfully finding Kickstarter backing for its initial lines of jackets and bags back in 2014, Lumo is back for another crack at crowdfunding, with a new jacket, gilet, and bag, all of which will come with significantly lower price tags than the original range.

While the original Lumo Harrington jacket and Regents Parka jacket came with pretty eye-watering price tags of £208 and £333 respectively, the new Clissold Bomber jacket will be a relative bargain at £175, although Kickstarter backers will be able to buy it for £125.

Alongside this jacket, Lumo is also releasing a windproof Holloway gilet and a Brixton messenger bag, both of which will eventually come with an RRP of £150, but will be available to Kickstarter backers for £99.

Watch: buyer’s guide to bike lights

All of the new items include the LED lighting that Lumo has become known for, making them apparently visible from up to 400m away, and being powered by a battery pack that will keep the lights running for up to 14 hours on a single charge.

Away from the lights, Lumo’s kit has clearly been designed with British conditions in mind, with the gilet being made from a Schoeller fabric with a waterproof membrane, the messenger bag having a waterproof inner lining, and the bomber jacket being water-resistant.
