(100% Cotton Water-repellent Poplin Fabric 'Vancloth & Sons' / 100% Nylon Parachute Fabric Lining with Polyester Insulation)
Crafted in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
Monitaly’s Tankers Jacket returns with a new fitting and fabrication for 2016 Fall/Winter. Using the vintage tanker jacket that was designed for soldiers of armored vehicle as a primary design source, Monitaly takes its own twist to refine the style and fitting. It features a modern fit, angled full-length front zipper, zipper pocket and flap pockets, hidden rib cuff and chin strap. The most distinctive, bold detail is a wild coyote fur used on hood. A snap closure at the middle of front zipper helps wear the jacket casually with that snap button closed while zipper is open.
Filled with three ounces of high-loft virgin hollow polyester insulation, the fluffy quilt fabric used as lining of this jacket helps keep you warm in a condition where doing light activity in cold temperatures. The quilt traps air in a space between its synthetic fibers and the air gets warmer as your body temperature increases with movement. This quilt mimics the feel of down but gives you the benefits of a synthetic insulation and less-bulky feeling. Unlike down which becomes heavy when damp, the quilt remains light in weight even when a bit wet. The quilt is stitched with a super light-weight rip-stop nylon fabric. It’s the same spec as real parachute material; durable, soft and windproof.
Monitaly’s original “Vancloth” fabric is a water-repellent and wind-resistant 100% cotton poplin fabric. The smooth texture is achieved by a tight weaving construction, and when water is introduced to the surface of the fabric, the outer-most layer of fine yarn swells to lock out moisture and prevent the garment from becoming soaked.
