The ‘Indestructible Puffer Vest’ From Vollebak Is 15 Times Stronger Than Steel

Vollebak’s products routinely fall at the intersection of innovation, function, and aesthetic appeal — a delicate balance on the best of days and a shot in the dark on the worst of ‘em. The latest offering from the British brand sheds the sleeves of their iconic Indestructible Puffer in favor of a vest stronger than any other.

Made from the same materials used in body armor and anti-ballistic vehicle armor, Vollebak’s Indestructible Puffer Vest is 15 times stronger than steel. In other words, even if you were to wear a steel-plated vest of a comparable spec, this puffer would still be stronger — 15 times so. And with triple-lining, a heavy-duty storm flap zipper, and some metal press studs, this vest is more than a cheap party trick — it’s a thoroughly-engineered piece of outerwear. But the icing on the proverbial cake has to be the toasty insulation made from recycled plastic bottles. As is always the case with Vollebak, what results is lightyears ahead of your run-of-the-mill outerwear. Though pricing has yet to be announced, you can sign up for the waitlist on Vollebak’s website.
