It looks more like a vintage garment straight off an army surplus store than a modern shirt-jacket. The Wilderness Utility Top from Prometheus Design Werx, however, will serve you like a trusted “shacket,” serving as a light jacket for warmer days in the mountain and layering nicely under a heavy jacket during colder months.
Unlike most modern garments, this top doesn’t just have a vintage design, it’s built like a vintage, too. That means, it gets none of the frivolous technical “innovations” that come attached to most modern garments – just a simple well-built jacket designed for practical function in your outdoor adventures.
The Prometheus Design Werx Wilderness Utility Top is made from a mid-weight 14oz. blend of wool, melton, and nylon, giving it a build that’s durable and naturally insulating. It has a relaxed fit and single-side arm panels to enable a wide range of movement, ensuring it wears comfortably, so you can climb that hill, chop that log, or reel in that trout without any hassle. A pair of large chest pockets provide plenty of room for storage, with two upper arm pockets and side-entry hand warmer pockets accommodating other gear.
Features include double reinforced elbows, large collars that you can flip up during windy days, slotted PDW buttons, YKK zippers, and industrial-grade construction. It comes in two colors: charcoal gray and olive green.
Now available for preorder, the Prometheus Design Werx Wilderness Utility Top is priced at $230.
