If we were placed in a life or death situation and told we could pick one, and only one, brand to make us gear to survive, there’s no questioning that we’d call on Vollebak. From their 100 Year Hoodie and Pre-Camouflaged Shirts to the Condition Black Survival and Graphene jackets, Vollebak spares no expense when it comes to research, development, quality or construction. The latest Vollebak release has an unlikely target market: prehistoric man. As they describe, “During the great migrations out of Africa around 50,000 years ago, our ancestors became the first explorers, the first mountaineers, the first sailors, even the first barefoot ultra-marathon runners.” Those successes led to the planet we live on now, so it seems like a good starting point for a jacket. Described as “part coat, part cave, the 50,000BC Jacket borrows as much from architecture as it does from material science.” In addition to being infused with all the usual Vollebak features, it’s waterproof windproof, highly durable and made with wool insulation to create a jacket that’s built for damn near everything.
