Kitanica Redesigns the Mark IV

The Mark IV is Kitanica’s most iconic jacket. In fact, after a couple of appearances on ‘Mythbusters’ several years ago, the Mark IV is what brought the brand back from hibernation.

While the Mark IV continues to be made from 1000D Cordura and still incorprates the distinctive spine pad, it now accepts elbow pads as well.  Otherwise, there are small design changes here and there.

Like all Kitanica clothing, these are proudly Made in the USA. Offered in Ranger Green, sizes Medium-XXLarge.

    INB4 all the haters complain about price and it’s too mall ninja…

    In all seriousness there literally is nothing else like Kitanica in the market. I don’t think there’s any middle ground either, you either love what they do or you hate it. I personally love their designs.

    So what’s the purpose of the jacket? Also, is that MOLLE on the left sleeve? This looks like a tactical BDSM jacket.

    If I was a movie villain I would wear the shit out of this.

    Day to day.. I’ll pass.

    I’ve always liked their Mk 1. That’s a truly over the top design. I should probably order one…

    I would totally cut the red wire whilst sporting this fine apparel.

    I see this is an awesome motorcycle jacket, waiting for them to release the black version.

    Another ridiculously over-designed Kitanica garment…but what’s new?

    Who runs Barter Town?

    When I saw it yesterday it reminded me of Empire Strikes Back, Rebel Hoth wear/battle jacket or something?

    I want to know why it does not have at least three cobra buckles?

    The designs always make me think of movie costumes.

  14. Stumphenhammer says:

    I’ve had two pairs of Kitanica shorts and loved them, they literally outlasted all my other range shorts by orders of magnitude, and in that sense, while the initial cost was high, the long-term value was there.

    I’d like to see them achieve greater success given they are a small company and U.S made, but IMO they are held back by two factors: (1) the designs of most of their product are too high on the mall ninja-B-grade Sci-Fi movie costume scale, and (2) their marketing is weak — one example being poorly photographed print ads using models that look too much like the average middle-aged Joe.
