Packing for changeable climates is a snap with this rugged canvas jacket and removable quilted lining. The outer jacket takes Arctic explorer’s jacket features like wind-resistant nylon and adds African safari jacket touches, like the classic canvas color and four snap-close patch pockets. An inner quilted poly jacket snaps into place for extra warmth, or can be worn on its own on milder days. Both jackets have a two-way zip closure. A snap-close patch pocket on the right sleeve bears the tricolor motif of the Society’s original flag.
About the Society's Flag The National Geographic flag features three bands in blue, brown, and green, representing sky, earth, and sea. It was designed in 1903 by Elsie Grosvenor, the wife of then-editor Gilbert H. Grosvenor, who wanted something easily identified from afar. The first flag went on assignment with the 1903 Ziegler Polar Expedition to the Arctic and continues to accompany National Geographic Explorers around the world.
