We’ve all been there: You leave the house on a chilly morning, all snuggled up in your cozy hoodie. Maybe it’s for a jog, a hike, a music festival or a visit to the zoo — whatever it is, the weather changes. Should you tie the hoodie around your waist? Toss it over your arm? Drape it over your shoulders, yachtie-style? There’s really no good option...until now.

The Quikflip Reversible Backpack Hero Hoodie is a jacket with a secret power: It converts into a fully functioning backpack. At $32 today only, the why-didn’t-I-think-of-that hybrid is almost 30 percent off (down from $55). The unisex hoodie comes in four neutral colors: heather gray, charcoal, black and heather navy.

The brainchild of third-generation jiu-jitsu master Rener Gracie, Quikflip was born out of necessity. Gracie would start the day wearing a hoodie and then get annoyed that he had nowhere to put it when he wanted to take it off. The lightbulb went off, followed by an appearance on Shark Tank—and now we all get to reap the benefits.

Made of French terry (60 percent comfy cotton, 40 percent wrinkle-resistant polyester), the medium-weight hoodie has hidden backpack straps — no one can tell what lies within. Once converted, the backpack features two storage compartments— one large and one small— for things like your wallet, keys and phone.

“Move over pet rock...This is definitely my new favorite hoodie, and a billion dollar invention on top of it,” says a five-star reviewer. “It is also the best made hoodie I have... VERY high quality. I would say the fact that it quickly converts to a backpack is actually a bonus, I would have been happy with just the quality and comfort of the hoodie...It's brilliant, and every time I have converted it in public I think I have sold one...”

“Athletic cut, nice medium weight, so much fun to show off,” raves another convert. “I love this thing so much more than I expected. Fits great with a more athletic cut that I like. Super easy to flip into a backpack and back. I’d say it’s about average in weight and thickness for a medium weight hoodie. And everyone I’ve shown it to loves it.”
