If you’ve seen me around trade shows, I often wear a softshell sport coat I bought from Nau many years ago. As it’s getting a little long in the tooth, and Nau no longer makes it, I’ve been on the lookout for a replacement for some time. Earlier this year, I was speaking with my friend and Platatac founder, Ben Cox, during SOFIC, when he presented me with a Platypus Polo Tie. We talked about the Platypus Polo line and he mentioned that he was working on a Blazer. I told him I was in as I had been searching for a good travel Blazer to replace my old one for quite awhile. A few weeks ago, I received a parcel from Australia and in it was one of the first Platypus Polo Blazers off the line.
There are two things I like about it. First, is the generous cut, which leaves ample room for concealed carry, or layering. The second thing I like about the Platypus Polo Blazer is the material selection. It’s made from a DWR treated, 4-way stretch offering a high level of wind and water resistance while maintaining high breathability. That little bit of mechanical stretch is great when you’re doing more than just standing around and it doesn’t hold wrinkles when taken out of luggage, but rather looks great right after you put it on.
