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.
