Amabilis Introduces the .5 Fit

Amabalis is currently running a Kickstarter campaign offering First Responder clothing, for both men and women. During this campaign, it’s a Hoody and Softshell. They are definitely full featured garments, but what makes them stand apart from others in this space is the .5 fit. Essentially, Amabilis has dealt the issue that many of us have of falling between standard sizing by introducing half sizes. Offered in both Men’s and Women’s sizing, the actual size is determined by measuring chest, waist, hips and sleeve length and these additional sizes will help with optimal fit.

I’ve had the opportunity to check out both garments and I like them. The Softshell integrates laser cut PALS webbing, although I had no use for it during the short evaluation period However, there are some very convenient pockets with magnetic closures on the chest. I also think the softshell has a rally motorcycle jacket vibe. Finally, I like the shoulder caps which are also common the the Hoody.

The Hoody is super comfy. The stretch panels are right where the need to be and I like the oversized snaps at the front opening. As I mentioned before, the abrasion resistant shoulder caps are a welcome addition.



If that wasn’t enough, the garments are guaranteed for life.

    ‘The LAST jacket I’ll ever want to own’.. with no hood on it?

    It’s also a shame they’re producing overseas but I guess they want to expand their market with this kind of pricing.

    I’m sure it is going to be a great quality product. I do feel a little burned by them over their Dave Duffle. They advetised hard on being made in the USA. However when I got it it was clearly made overseas. That being said it’s a quality bag. And I’m sure any product they’re going to make or have made for them will be of quality. The bait and switch has left me sour though.
