A shank front jacket in the crisply structured and near indestructible Bombtwill fabric. Hundreds of superfine air texturized nylon 6.6 fibers are twisted into each and every yarn to create a fabric that is counter-intuitively tough yet supple. Simple matte black stainless shanks finish off a classic jacket shape, but mostly this stuff has that forget-about-it combination of easy wear and lasting durability.
Woven in Sweden
If the Strongtwill was quietly bombproof this stuff is straight up the bomb. The Bombtwill is built around a very particular set of Supplex yarns that provide a unique and counterintuitive combination of softness and strength. Hundreds of air texturized nylon 6,6 fibers are spun into each yarn. Each single fiber is extremely thin and soft, but combined together they create a thick yarn that forms a dramatically stronger whole. The gentle touch of the individual fiber is still there but with so many fibers per yarn it hides under a rugged durability, there to slowly emerge with repeated wear.
The Bombtwill uses two different versions of these Supplex yarns. In the weft is a stretch yarn that twists over 300 air texturized nylon 6,6 filaments together around an elastane core. The warp uses over 200 of those same filaments, but without the elastane core. The result is a dense twill weave with a ton of structure for its weight. This structure means that fabric can hold away from the body creating garments with better airflow. Weighing in at 360gsm and 96% of it being nylon 6,6 means this is an incredibly tough fabric that should handle a serious amount of serious wear. The 4% elastane content gives it a subtle stretch. It is all finished with an F0 (fluorocarbon free) Zelan R3 DWR so it dries quickly and stays clean longer for superior wearability.
