Performance Streetwear Jacket with Tweave Durastretch®

For Fall 2019 Prometheus Design Werx releases their new streetwear Invictus Jacket. Made with performance Tweave Durastretch® fabric, this style has abrasion resistance, 4-way stretch, great mobility, blocks wind, high breathability, and a DWR finish to shrug off drizzle.  The Invictus Jacket features 5 strategically placed zippered pockets, dummy cord anchors, pass-throughs for media cables, angled bias cut cuffs with molded cuff tabs, and a 2-way center front zipper.

The Prometheus Design Werx Invictus Jacket is available in Universal Field Gray (UFG), Stone Mountain Green (SMG) and All Terrain Brown (ATB).

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We designed this jacket to be well suited for wear around town in Fall and Spring seasons. The clean, modern styling is understated but with a legacy in racing team jackets from another era. Easily paired with pants, jeans or shorts and over a basic t-shirt or your favorite pullover hoodie, you can wear this jacket just about any day of the week. The Tweave Durastretch® is a field proven technical and performance fabric with great mobility, good abrasion resistance, breathes very well and the DWR finish shrugs off drizzle. So, with these characteristics the Invictus Jacket should handle the urban ‘wilderness’ without batting an eye. These jackets are made in our home state of California using US woven fabric.”
