The space race that kicked off in the mid-1950s and carried through until around 1975 didn’t just put us on the moon—it also led to some of the largest leaps in technology that mankind has ever seen. Key to the spacefaring missions was the development of materials technology, with a whole range of synthetic materials invented to get our astronauts into outer space and back safe and sound. Now decades on from the initial age of space exploration, we get to use the benefits of those materials in our everyday clothing and gear.
Proof’s moonweight bomber jacket takes its inspiration from a wide variety of sources: Fighter plane ready bomber jackets, technical puffer jackets for hiking, and space age materials for maximum efficiency. Its water-resistant nylon shell covers a polyfill insulation that’s treated with graphene—giving it an edge by remaining lightweight while delivering maximum reflected warmth. All of which means: It’s a jacket that’s as cool looking as it is useful, and it’s quickly becoming one of our favorite winter layers.
