Maharishi Field Jacket With Detachable Backpack And Lingering Shame

I’ve come to realize that if a jacket has 4 big front pockets, it’s apparently always a “Field Jacket”:


What you’re looking it in this case is a jacket with a fasteners to attach a propriety matching backpack.  Finished laughing yet?  *facepalm* where do I even start.  That thing is so embarrassing…. like seriously a detachable backpack?  Was this concept originally for 5 year olds?  I highly doubt a grown man has ever said “You know what would be really cool… if this jacket came with a matching backpack, and rather than have conventional over the shoulder straps I just had lose straps I could weave into some hardware on the jacket.”  That is the worst possible color they could have possibly produced that jacket in too.  It still would have been hideous in black or olive drab, but much better than such a bland light grey.

£320 ($487 USD) over at Maharishi.

  1. sadly, i like the concept and think this is a fair execution. maybe some Kitanica like molle would make it more flexible.

  2. HA HA these so-called designers really have NO creativity.
    This jacket is simply a replica of the WWII US paratroopers’ M42 jump suit. Four two-snaps closing front pockets, reinforced elbows, cloth belt with sliding buckle. It’s just that they didn’t bother having the upper pockets obliquely sewn.

    Sorry Mike I have the impression to troll this blog, but I’m amazed that clothes’ designers are so fond of military style but always come up like they’ve re-invented the wheel…
