Over the last 25 years, AMABILIS founder Brian Adams has worked with everyone from FEMA rescue workers to elite Spec Ops troops to the Marine Corps Systems Command, so it goes without saying that the man knows a thing or two about designing hard-wearing high-performance apparel. Just take these two tactical-inspired jackets, for instance.
They’re called the ‘Responder Lite Tactical Chore Jacket’ and the ‘Primaloft Shirt-Jac,’ and they each come heavily influenced by Adams’ work with the military. For instance, the former is a riff on the brand’s existing Responder Jacket, offering a lighter, trimmer construction that makes it much more comfortable for day-to-day wear. However, because it’s crafted from a NYCO 50-50 nylon and cotton ripstop weave (that’s both USA-made and mil-spec certified), it’s also incredibly abrasion- and tear-resistant, with 8 different pockets for your carry. And when it comes to the latter, you’ll find that it makes for a welcome alternative to traditional puffers. Made from a melange heather fabric and treated with 3M Scotchgard for a water-repellent finish, it comes with 100g of toasty Primaloft ECO insulation as well as a supple Sherpa fleece lining and some 7 pockets total. You can back them on Kickstarter for $159 and up.
