Details We went back to the well for this interpretation of the classic M-51 Parka. With its origins in the US military, this iconic garment has since been immortalized in the annals of youth culture, but its original purpose was less about looking good and primarily concerned with staying dry. We’ve taken the essential features of the archetype and overhauled it from the inside out, while seriously upgrading it using today’s technology. Constructed using a 3-layer, waterproof, breathable stretch nylon from Japan, the garment is precision laser cut and fully seam taped throughout.
About 3-Layer Technology 3-layer refers to the construction of a material consisting of an outer layer, an inner layer, and a membrane layer sandwiched in between. The outer layer is a high-density nylon treated with a DWR finish, the inner layer is a fine tricot knit that feels soft against the skin, and the membrane layer provides a waterproof and breathable barrier to ensure you stay dry in adverse conditions. The membrane layer is made up of billions of tiny pores that are too small for water and wind to pass through from the outside, but large enough to allow moisture vapor to pass through from the inside—meaning you stay dry and comfortable at all times. The DWR finish on the outer layer prevents the fabric from becoming saturated and allows the breathable barrier to do its job. 3-layer fabrics are amongst the most advanced materials available and provide superior performance, protection, and durability.
