We grew up wearing coach’s jackets to school and always loved the classic simplicity. Inevitably, the materials were always the lowest common denominator and hardly protective on any order of magnitude, aside from a cool breeze. Adding much needed utility to this design, we’ve upgraded every possible element, keeping only the classic front snap closures. Our waterproof breathable shell fabric is fashioned with raglan sleeves to create a more seamless construction around the shoulders. The addition of action pleats behind the elbows and knit cuffs where elastic binding once lived adds to the functionality of the piece. The evolved front snap closure is a hidden fly front in our version. A zipper welt chest pocket extends from the covered front placket to provide a much needed secure storage compartment. Our hand pockets are applied utility-patch pockets w/ brushed jersey lining, making for a thoroughly rugged yet protective design.
