Folk Light Rainmac

March 28, 2011

The guys from UK label folk recently sent me some images of their best selling rainmac, which they’ve been busy tweaking for the new Spring/Summer season. As we’ve come to expect from this label it’s brilliantly functional, yet at the same time full of beautiful detailing.

It’s made from 100% Nylon, which has a clear waterproof backing and is made in Sweden by one of the best suppliers of technical fabric in the world. The pockets feature waterproof aqua guard zips and the front closes with both a zip and press stud fastening placket, meaning you’re going to stay dry regardless of how many April showers you encounter.

The mac also comes with a removable peaked hood which allows the collar to be folded down and popped closed for a smarter look if you fancy. It’s a nice touch and one that means you don’t have a hood flapping about when you don’t need it – just take it off and store it away until you do. The shoulders have the same panel detail that the guys use on their shoulder patch shirts and knitwear – it’s become a bit of a Folk trademark and it’s one I’m particularly fond of.

Other nice bits include the white detailing on the lower pocket edges and they’ve hand dipping the drawstring cords in red latex to seal them and stop fraying. Finally the mac’s available in three different colours – the Phantom colourway shown in the above shots, Forest and Bronze.
