MATERIAL: WATERPROOF / WINDPROOF

“We wanted a jacket that was as functional as it was iconic – first step, the fabric. We went with a really special waterproof material that has went under water pressure and wind pressure tests to make sure it can do the job. It’s a three layer material that can withstand rain and wind, yet allow your skin to breathe as you commute around the city.”

DETAILS: POCKETS FOR YOUR GADGETS

“Like to listen to music on your way to work? We’ve added a waterproof pocket to keep your devices, well, water- free. We’ve also included a hole for your earbuds to stick out for some proper jamming on your way to work.”

BREATHABILITY: HOLES, MESH, & VENTS

“To aid in air flow, we’ve added perforated vents in the underarms (1), mesh at the shoulders  (2), and back vents (3) – three features even the speediest bicycle commuter could and should count on.”

(1) Laser cut ventilation holes under the pit of the arm

(2) 3D Mesh that separates the jacket from the back for extra ventilation

(3) Back vents to allow your back to breathe and moisture to escape

FINISHING TOUCHES: TAPED SEAMS AND BAR TAGS

“We’ve taped each and every seam to ensure no moisture gets through from the outside. You won’t be climbing Mount Everest in this, but you might be trudging through the rainy Danish springs – and somedays that feels nearly the same.”

“We’ve also done heat transfer bar tags along the pockets; which not only looks cool, but makes for more durable edges while maneuvering your way through the city.”
