If you fancy the cozy suppleness, organic 'oilskin' waterproofness, and uniquely experienced look of classic, traditional 100% English waxed cotton gear, but demand modern venting, TF3 technical armor and Scotchlite™ reflective areas, then the Falstaff ought to do it, mate... The Falstaff’s authentic waxed cotton fabric is exactly the same English waxed cotton proven in traditional classic foul weather British gear…back in the day. This stuff is a highly durable and exceptionally comfortable fabric, proven by outdoorsmen and commercial fisherman in the north sea with their ‘oilskins’ for generations in the harshest conditions. The Falstaff adds a full sewn-in cotton lining to the comfortable Aerostich Darien design, with two more huge inside pockets, a soft ultrasuede faced collar, and an oversized cargo pocket behind the back reflective. Making it more comfortable to wear in hot summers than the old British jackets are the Falstaff’s generous underarm and back vents. And the addition of standard Aerostich TF3 impact armor helps provide crash performance far beyond what the ‘olde-blighty’ jackets provided, too. The abrasion resistance of waxed cotton (when compared to the Darien’s 500 Denier Cordura) is better than you’d think. Black, Brown, Green, Yellow or Orange. 36–54. USA.
A NOTE ABOUT YELLOW...unlike black, green, brown & orange, the yellow color of waxed cotton fabric is translucent enough to clearly reveal the contents of items carried in pockets and some of the internal construction details of the garment.
