When social distancing is not always possible, we simply pull up our hood, deploy our mask and visor, click and zip the magnetic zipper, and we’re protected in seconds

Gabriel3 launches two new hoodies on Kickstarter: The antimicrobial Guardian with added protection against viruses and the Thindown™ Breakaway that protects from cold and rain, thereby answering the global need for innovative apparel that combines the best of technology, science, nature and design to give customers the protection they need and deserve.
The Guardian hoodie helps protect from viruses, bacteria and flu; is always at-the-ready. With a hidden visor, face mask, and 30 features that matter, it transforms the traditional hoodie into exceptionally crafted personal protective gear, while serving as the everyday go-to hoodie for comfort and style.
Designed by seasoned experts in apparel, manufacturing and sterilization, the founders understood early-on that without a readily available vaccine, the only way to prevent getting COVID-19 is to protect oneself. So, they formed a ‘dream team’ of textile engineers, designers, doctors, innovators and fulfilment veterans to create the ultimate solution.
“The Guardian is designed to help restore freedoms the pandemic has taken away,” said David Cockrell, Gabriel3 design director. “When social distancing is not always possible, we simply pull up our hood, deploy our mask and visor, click and zip the magnetic zipper, and we have extra protection in seconds.”
Inside the hood lies a treasure of hidden features. A washable reusable triple-layer face mask can be pulled-out from the hood and a visor glides down with ease to protect your eyes. The Guardian also includes a retractable anti-pathogen glove for opening doors and pumping gas; and a stylus pen for using at ATM’s and point of sales.
The Gabriel3 Breakaway hoodie protects from cold and rain with its water-resistant Storm Cotton® shell and ‘Move-Free Floating Liner’ made with patented Thindown™ insulation. Ronie Reuben, the inventor of Thindown™ proposed this sustainable down liner as the solution for the Breakaway since it is super light, warm and reverses to a vest over the hoodie. Made by a revolutionary process that converts down fibers into a down fabric; it is down re-imagined, with no bulk, no cold spots and no seepage.
Like the Guardian, it is ideal for travel and is loaded with functional pockets for carrying all essential accessories.
Both the Breakaway and Guardian hoodies are available in zippered and pullover models. Multifunctional antimicrobial pants made for comfort and style are offered as well to complete the set.
In the cold or in a crisis, count on Gabriel3 for stylish and exceptionally crafted protection apparel.
