I’m calling it right now, 2017 will be the year of the Travel Dad. Slouchy fits and maximum pockets will hit their peak at the same time, everyone will have trail mix at arm’s length, and Eichiro Homma and Nanamica will finally get his much deserved place in the sun.
Travel Dad needs not a wallet, he has his Rick Steves approved money belt. Travel Dad needs not a smartphone, he has his finely tuned sense of direction and a mini-compass on the strap of his Timex. And Travel Dad needs not a backpack, because he has this BEAST of a jacket.
The GRP-003 Phisherma’s Jacket from Mountain Research is a science experiment gone horribly right. It’s a fishing vest sewn into a blazer, let me repeat, a FISHING VEST sewn into a BLAZER. With literally dozens of pockets at your fingertips, you’ll never be remiss to find your headphones, metrocard, or a number 8 Woolly Bugger. Let’s take this journey together.
Available for $1025 (Travel Dad invested wisely) at Blue in Green.
