Lately I’ve been really interested in luggage and small leather goods. Transporting your quality pieces while you travel is something that’s so important in the world of menswear. Keeping your hats crisp can be cumbersome act especially if you don’t plan on wearing them on the plane. Hats like baseball caps (or fitteds) can be even hard to transport and no one has the time to reshape their hats once they land.
Thankfully, “Skycap”, the first offering from lifestyle brand Life on AutoPilot aims to solve this dilemma.
SkyCap is a patent pending ingenious invention that was inspired by the need to protect the fabric, form, and shape of the baseball cap while in transit. It features a storage compartment within the vessel for personal items that can zip close. SkyCap possesses a clip, which allows it to be fastened to a backpack, pullman suitcase, duffle bag, or directly onto a belt loop. It comfortably holds up to five caps and has a zip pocket on the underbelly for ID cards, passports, boarding passes, and more.
Each SkyCap was meticulously handcrafted, from the sleek silhouette, to the custom hardware and interior design. The aesthetic appreciation of SkyCap is met with astoundment from hat collectors to sports enthusiasts.
Offered in four colorways, this handcrafted leather piece is available for pre-order right now. Check out some pictures below and some video that give you a better understanding of how fresh this carrier is. With an influx of high-end caps and fitteds, the need to protect your headwear is more necessary than ever.
