Since the Society's early days, National Geographic explorers have relied on the sun-shielding protection of the classic safari jacket. Our new version takes advantage of modern advances like a stain-repelling Teflon® coating and doesn't forsake comfort for practicality. Features include functional shoulder epaulets that can secure luggage or camera straps; back pleats and underarm gussets to increase freedom of movement; underarm grommets for greater ventilation; button cuffs and tabs that let you adjust sleeves from long to short; internal adjustable elastic waistband; and side-entry hand-warmer pockets. Three interior security pockets and four outer pockets hold passport, camera, maps, guides, PDA, and MP3 player with room for even more.
I bought this jacket for hiking in Texas where it is hot and cold but not too cold. The fit is a bit snug as I am 6'3" 254 lb but am working on losing about 40 of that. This jacket is VERY comfortable. The lining makes it feel like a silk shirt. I highly recommend it to thinner people.
Feels true to size
Comfort vs Style:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
