Ever the innovator of the technical apparel industry, Vollebak has a knack for creating some of the most cutting-edge gear on the planet. For its latest drops, however, the brand opted not to break new ground, but rather to look to the past in order to update a pair of timeless classics for the modern day.
They come in the form of the Planet Earth Jacket and the Planet Earth Hat, with each one being based on an iconic surplus staple. The former, for instance, takes inspiration from the M65 — a legendary field jacket developed during the Vietnam War. Accordingly, then, Vollebak has built it to be as tough as they come, combining a waterproof British Millerain waxed cotton shell with a hard-wearing Cordura inner. Lined with fleece and loaded with zippers, it’s truly a jacket that’s ready for anything. And when it comes to the latter, you’ll find that Vollebak has taken the veritable boonie and given it a full-on utilitarian overhaul. So, in addition to some 36 vents and a removable sun shield, it also features 16 loops for your essentials as well as a drawcord filled with fishing wire and tinder. Available now, you can buy them for $795 and $175, respectively.
