The fisherman’s jacket can trace its roots back far into the past. Ever since men and women have taken to the water for travel or fishing, there’s been a need to stay warm and dry – especially when the weather is against you.
From the oiled silk umbrellas of 10th century China to the linseed oil-soaked capes worn by 15th century sailors, people have tried and tested many ways to beat the weather.
Thankfully, technology has come a long way since then. Our Kibby Mountain Hooded Bomber is highly waterproof, but also features DryVent™ technology for breathable comfort so you can wear it all the time, whether wandering city streets in a rainstorm or going for a sea-side stroll .
Available in this season’s classic yellow, long popular with fisherman for its visibility in all conditions. Layer it over a classic blue button-down shirt for a classic East Coast look that works just as well for an excursion out at sea … or an afternoon at the aquarium.
