The Penfield Pac Jac Jacket was made famous when worn by both Gallagher brothers in the mid 90s when Oasis were in their prime and most memorably when Noel swanned on stage in Red and Tan version at Maine road in 1996 for what was most probably Oasis’s greatest ever set.
The jacket is made from showerproof nylon with drawstring to hood, inner waist & hem and large pouch pocket on the front with Penfield logo on. The cut of the jacket is pretty amazing with 3 drawstrings giving you the option to pull it in around the waist, hem and hood, there’s no wonder it was favoured by Rock n Roll stars and it’s perfect for gigs and festivals as it folds into its own pocket for easy storage.

Stussy love to knock out a collaboration which has kinda diluted them for me. But that being said I love this Jacket from their Autumn Winter 10 tie up with Penfield. A nice classic parka style with 80% down and 20% feather fill with the Green being my favourite colourway. Available at Haven
Outdoor specialists Penfield have teamed up with Stussy to produce this collection of parkas and puffa jackets. Designed primarily for warmth, the N3B jacket features a fluffy grey hood, a matt colourway of your choice between black, navy and olive and a thick contrasting lining. Penfield’s Walkabout jacket has also been given a Stussy makeover, with the overtly padded model set to release in three new colourways to match the more expensive N3B model. All 6 models are scheduled for a release well in time for Winter, on October 30.
2010 witnesses the 35th anniversary of the Massachusetts based pioneers of all that is practical, durable and functional – Penfield. To commemorate this milestone in the company’s celebrated heritage, Penfield have decided to re-issue a classic from their archives: the original Outback Vest. First released in the late 1970’s, the Outback Vest has become a staple style in Penfield’s Winter collections and its continued popularity justifies its inclusion cold season on cold season. The Outback Vest exemplifies the ethos of what it is to be Penfield – a classic look, unsurpassed garment quality, and eminent style. The Outback embodies the spirit of the brand and illustrates clearly what Penfield stand for. The 35th Anniversary Leather version will be available here
from 15th September.
Two of our favorite labels align for FW10 on the above down vest. Styled after a 1930’s life preserver the nylon vest features a prominent toggle closure up front. Also comes in black.
Festival storms can crop up at a moment’s notice, so stay prepared with the Penfield Pacjac 35th Anniversary Jacket. Created to honour the company’s 35th anniversary, this remake of the original Pac-Jac is made from 100% wind and water-resistant nylon, and features an adjustable hem and hood, a waist cinch, a vented back section, a special anniversary zip pull, and a design that allows it to pack into its own front pocket.
Backpack love aside, some days just call for a tote. Whilst backpacks are infinitely better for hauling large amounts of stuff, a tote is better suited if all you have is a camera and a couple of magazines. If you like your totes a little sturdy and affordable, then Penfield have your back. Buy Here
