Aether's Ion Jacket Is a Modern Take on the Classic Bomber

Aether's Ion Jacket Is a Modern Take on the Classic Bomber

The bomber’s been around in one form or another since the 1920’s thanks to its mix of style and practicality. In that spirit, Aether’s created the Ion Jacket. The distinct look of the bomber’s definitely present, but they’ve done a bit of updating. The 800-fill goose down promises to keep you warm and the nylon and rib knit will keep the wind out. There’s also an audio valve for your headphones built into the pockets, so no weird MacGyvering with cords and zippers to listen to your music while staying warm. It’s a jacket designed to take you all the way through fall and winter.

Exploding Cars

Even without the hot, tattooed blonde in lingerie, the photo shoot for the new Contender Series from State Bicycle Co. contained porn... bike porn. But then there's also the hot, tattooed blonde in lingerie (Alysha Nett, if you were wondering) and, well, you get the idea. They te...

The Labels of Prairie Artisan Ales

The Labels of Prairie Artisan Ales

Prairie Artisan Ales crafts some really, really good beers. If you haven't had the pleasure, get your hands on some Bomb! or any of their farmhouse ales whenever you have the chance. One of the other reasons we dig the Oklahoma brewery is the artwork on their labels. We had the chance to talk with Colin Healey, who started the brewery with his brother Chase, about the design and direction of, not only what goes in the bottles, but what goes on them.
