MO & PIMON approving THE JACKET | weatherproof

The fabric of THE JACKET: Uniquely spun fibres swell to stop ingress of water. The most breathable weatherproof fabric available. As comfortable as wearing a cotton shirt. Every day, we are imagining and engineering new products that meet the practical requirements of wilderness and the esthetical preferences of our design-savvy generation. The products that we develop according to these wishes are designed to be a reliable companion in the city, travelling or simply outdoors.

JECKYBENG. Our first piece is the Jacket. its weatherproof. its windproof and its 100% organic cotton. We have been working with a new fabric developed in Switzerland which has a PFC free finish and uniquely spun fibres that swell when exposed to water, locking out moisture to keep you dry.Its the most breathable weather proof fabric available. and as comfortable as wearing a cotton shirt. This really is a jacket for all seasons. JECKYBENG is part of an urban outdoor movement – a movement of inspired urbanites who see the world from a different perspective and are not afraid to question their everyday life. They try to figure out the elemental question as to why our modern society always seems to have to compete with nature instead of striving to achieve harmony. With our interviews, stories, pictures and products, we at JECKYBEN are addressing all of you who are searching for deceleration, sustainability and balance – those who want to rediscover nature.
