When designing outerwear, the first priority is function. I take great care that every detail from the shell fabric to the pockets, jacket liners and every bit of materials used are the best possible. Many brands say this and some really mean it, surely I do.
Our outer shell is a tightly woven broadcloth using 2 ply yarns for extra strength and wearability. Originally this construction was designed for the RAF during WWII to save downed British pilots who had to ditch in the English Channel. Their planes were shot to pieces over the continent while in combat. The tightly woven fabric construction was the flight suit shell as well as the liners, preventing thermal exposure long enough to raise the survival rate from 20% to 80%.
Bringing you back to today, since the original jacket was designed, I have dded a phone and tablet pocket. These pockets are great for your your outdoors and especially helpful when you travel and need to go theu airport scanners. Just load your stuff in the jacket, put the jacket in the tray and go easily thru the body scans.
Here are the pockets:
