We found the original jacket in one of the archives of a factory we work with. The original is a mountaineering jacket from the mid 70's. Double layer ventile, grown on hood, two way zipper. It turned out to be a brand that is related to one of our families which was pretty cool. So it is making a comeback, certainly not as technical by todays standards but for everyday use, it will be well above par for the job and you won't look like you're trying too hard. No Gore Tex, just double layer cotton ventile or Spinker Drill for the summer. Here is the Explorer.
