Technologies created for badass applications regularly trickle into your good-ass life: paddle gear-shifters sped up F1 lap times, duct tape sealed Army ammo cases tight, and Tang saved astronauts the tribulations of squeezing oranges at zero-G. For similarly pedigreed jackets, check out Scapegoat.
Scapegoat's the stylish baby of Sid Factor 7, a Colorado design shop whose know-how's so uncompromising, the Navy Seals turned to them for modular protective-wear that could repel the chilliest elements/the cruelest film critiques of 1990. Consolidating SF7's expertise, each of the seven jackets boast super-technical features, like "laser-welded" seams, Bone-Dry waterproofing, and abrasion film heat-bonded to potential wear areas like cuffs and pockets (sorry "face"). Nevertheless, the styles are crisp: the Standard's the puffy jacket you're not ashamed to wear, the Coaster incorporates military-style quilting, and the Almanac's got enough pockets to fit...mad almanacs.
The whole range is online, though two instant sellouts might not be available again 'til next year: the Hayward and the Fraser, which shares a name with a man who was originally a jocular regular at a Boston bar, but trickled down into a fat-ass pedantic shrink.
