New jackets

About eleven years ago, I made myself an Ultrex winter jacket with a Cordura yoke and 2″-wide strips of reflective tape. After wearing it every day all winter for eleven years, I decided it was time for a new one. So I made us matching jackets, from the same pattern as before. Here you can see the old one with the new ones. Mine’s blue, Jake’s is green. This time they have reflective material at the wrists for signaling turns, as well as the pit zips and back vent I made before.

The third picture demonstrates the jacket being put to the test in a blizzard. :)
