Being prepared for travel in changeable climates doesn’t have to mean bringing twice the gear. Our water-resistant, blazer-style jacket is perfect from Seattle to São Paulo. Its ability to shrug off wet weather is due to the tight weave of the fabric, not a surface waterproofing treatment, so it remains effective even after years of wear. Four exterior patch pockets, two hand pockets, interior zip pocket, and interior MP3 pocket with an earphone pass-through slot help you keep a ton of travel essentials within reach. Button cuffs customize the fit.


NGS Exclusive.


Imported. 100% cotton exterior; lightweight poly lining. Men’s sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48), XXL (50-52).


Machine wash.


Each piece is unique and the color will distress more with each washing.

        Pros

        • Comfortable
        • Lots of pockets
        • Useful

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Chilling weather
          • On Bike
          • On street
          • Slight drizzle

          I use this product whenever I am riding on my bike. When its drizzling, my top don't actually get wet. And I look great with it on my bike. When temperature is getting chilling, the side pockets came in handy for me to put my hands in.

          lapel not as pictured

          By dan

          from new york, ny

          Verified Buyer

          lapels were much wider than illustrated; also expected much darker/richer color as per picture but turned out to be pale; over-all, this jacket had a "cheap" look to it.

          • Design ok
          • QUALITY OK

          Cons

          • Actual color is bad
          • Color misleading in Photo

          Best Uses

          • Travel

          The actual color is totally misleading. It is dull brown and not in wash out look. It doesn't look natural and is not matching with the nature if your are wearing it in wild environment.
          The misleading color in the wedsite photo is much better. When I received it I felt like being cheated.

          The same comment as another reviewer. The actual color of the jacket is exactly dull brown. Not in wash out look and not in the same color tone as shown in the picture in the website. The color in the picture is completely misleading.
          The design and quality is OK so I don't bother to return it. However, I think the NG team should do something to correct it.

          • none

          Best Uses

          • Great travel jacket

          Although I liked the look, I almost didn't order it because I usually wear a large and the single review had said the large jacket ran small and the sleeves were too short. The XL size with a 50" chest just seemed too big so I took a chance and ordered the large -- glad I did. I found it true to size and the sleeves were perfect. I wear a 44 suit jacket and 34/35 shirt sleeve and did not find the jacket too small at all.

          Nice!

          By Martin

          from Windsor, Canada

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • Good cloth
          • Nice Look

          Cons

          • Size chart is wrong

          Best Uses

            Loved it the moment I saw it, ordered it and went according to the size chart. I have 44" shoulders and a 34 waist. According to the size chat, the large jacket should have been fine. Turns out it wasn't at all, felt like the shoulders were 42" and the sleeves were too short. Sent it back, still waiting for it to be processed and replace for the XL version. One thing that annoys me is the fact that exchanging it takes so much time. I had ordered this jacket for the fall season, looks like I will get to use it in the spring. Giving it a four star review due to the issues with exchange and delays.

            Artisans working in Kathmandu, Nepal, use a traditional quilting technique called "trapunto" to add the detailing at the shoulders and yoke of this jacket. In trapunto, decorative patterns are sewn with lightweight batting to add texture without bulk. The artisans who make this jacket create the pattern freehand as they guide the garment through a treadle-operated sewing machine. Light enough to wear as a shirt or a jacket, it multiplies your travel wardrobe and helps you pack light. Hip length, with side welt pockets, turn-back cuffs, flattering princess seams, and an adjustable tie back.
