Vollebak’s 100 Year Jacket Was Built To Survive A Century Of Hard Use

Finding an advanced outdoor garment that can confront the world’s harshest terrain and weather events is already a complex affair. Thanks to deviations in design principle, ideology, and textile use, the industry’s finest manufacturers have fought a neverending battle for weatherized supremacy. But while major retail outfits bicker over the architecture of the present, Vollebak is looking toward the future — 100 years toward the future, to be exact.

Vollebak’s latest addition to its lauded, hard-wearing “100 Year” line arrives as a highly-anticipated hooded jacket/anorak variant that looks as cunning as it is functionally adept. Much like the brand’s vest and pants, which reside under the same centurial moniker, the 100 Year Jacket boasts a series of innovative fabrics to make it the most formidable in the outdoor space, offering resistances to fire, time, tearing and abrasion, thanks to the inclusion of fabric that’s 5x stronger than steel. With a waterproof rating to 43,000mm, textiles that have passed the Martindale abrasion resistance test with flying colors, and an ultra-tough polyurethane membrane, the 100 Year Jacket was built to maintain its composure in the world’s toughest environments — whether that be in a torrential northern downpour or a snow-covered urban excursion under the city lights. We’ve only scratched the surface of Vollebak’s new jacket, so head to the company’s website to learn more; and while you’re there, be sure to reserve your own for $895.
