HOOK & LOOP UTILITY VEST [05/30]
"We approached this idea as a cross between a typical running vest and a modular, chest rig; something you'd maybe see a filmworker wearing.
The goal was to create a form-hugging, low profile vest that allows for a bevy of modular additions, such as backpacks, tool pouches… or really anything that has a strip of velcro on it.
We utilized a host of amazing fabrics, featuring specifically a textile called Opelon, which is a very soft, 4-way stretch 'looped' fabric. Think the soft side of velcro, but in a fabric. Level 9 hard to sew, but adds a lot to the final design's functionality.
Two front zip pockets can house small tools, keys and other bits while front dump pockets allow for quick access to phone or other tracking devices. Back flap allows enough room to fit a 13" laptop with little to no bulk...perfect for the urban minimalist who maybe wants to stroll sans backpack into the office. Adjustable paracord sides. Which in a future iteration would become static cord interacting with a Fidlock ratchet".
