Acronym is a label that pushes the boundaries of material technology and garment design with each new collection they release. The J47A-GT is a prime example of this. Made using the latest 3L GORE-TEX Pro fabric, it is incredibly lightweight, highly breathable and completely waterproof. This is a perfect jacket for the temperamental British weather and can be used all year round.
The build quality and attention to detail is another area where the Berlin based label excels. Taped seams feature throughout, as does articulated panelling for an ergonomic fit. The front is fastened with a sturdy YKK zip that covers a storm flap for complete protection from the elements. Taking cues from military clothing, the front also has a series of patch pockets located on the chest and arms.
Also featuring on the placket is a laminated zip system that conceals an internal pocket near the chest. This zip extends the whole length of the jacket and can also be undone at the bottom to allow for increased movement near the hem. Two pockets feature on the hips and two more are located inside the cuffs. These can be accessed externally via a laminated zipper with hinged zip pulls and they are perfect for storing mobile phones or card holders that need to be kept close at hand.
Finishing off the J47A-GT are adjustable cuffs, internal carry straps, magnetic strips near the collar to attach headphones to when not in use and a large hood that can be easily folded down into a self storing funnel collar. An incredible jacket from one of the most innovative labels going.
