Outerknown Evolution Flight Jacket

No matter the time of year, dawn patrols are going to be at least a little bit chilly. Rising surf wear brand Outerknown knows this all to well, which is why they came out with the substantial and fully sustainable Evolution Flight Jacket.

One of the more interesting parts of this early morning ready flight jacket is the material it is made from. Outerknown cut the classically styled bomber from 100% ECONYL, a special proprietary nylon fabric made up of reclaimed fishing nets and other plastics pulled from the ocean. This not only makes the jacket totally sustainable, but it gives it a lightweight feel and helps cut through wind. Not feeling the olive drab exterior? The bomber jacket can be flipped inside out to reveal navy crane print inspired by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. All things said this may be one of the bombers on the market.

Purchase: $245
