This is a nylon carbon coated jacket from Repo Brand. I have no idea what carbon coating does to a jacket, but let’s just say it makes the jacket bullet proof and adds strength and vitality to the wearer, which could be you. When you think about archival details like a concealed hood, rain flaps, side adjusts and super human strength, $495 isn’t that much to ask for. I mean really, you’re ripping off Smith + Butler at this point. Don't be a jerk and gloat about it.
