Kobayashi Setsumasa's original 'General Research' line founded in 1993 served as a precursor to the contemporary Mountain Research. The label focuses on developing clothing that is utilitarian, functional, and well-equipped for daily life. This black flight jacket encapsulates that ideal with a sleek, streamlined cut featuring a slim body, tailored sleeves. 4 diagonally flap-closed pockets along the front body and asymmetrically placed blank velcro patches nod to military flight jackets. Thick banded velcro cuffs and a dropped inner zip placket seal out the wind and a quilted polyester batting interior keeps the wearer warm without bulk. The concise feature set is visually interesting yet perfectly usable while the cotton-rayon blend face fabric lends a soft and supple hand. All the elements come together as a no-nonsense, versatile, yet sharp piece of outerwear that is a pleasure to wear.
Made in Japan 8/10 Condition, with no rips, stains, or tears. Some yellowing at the neck tag.
