PDW Roam Jacket EC

Modern Take on the Classic American Trucker Jacket in Soft-Shell Fabric

For Fall/Winter 2021 Prometheus Design Werx introduces their Roam Jacket EC. Based directly on the classic American “Trucker Jacket”, PDW updated this style of outerwear with their Expedition Cloth, a technical, performance, nylon/poly soft-shell fabric with 4-way stretch and a DWR finish. Comfortably cut to wear over a base-layer or your favorite hoodie, the ROAM Jacket EC is also fully lined in their Guide Cloth, features chest pockets specially sized for most smartphones, 2 hand pockets, 2 interior pockets, their signature hide-away pocket under the collar, snap cuffs, center placket, waist tabs, and pocket flaps. Well suited for cool to cold weather wear, when worn with layers. This is another modern classic design from PDW and is expertly sewn in California, USA.

The Roam Jacket EC is a part of Prometheus Design Werx’s CORE-Line of technical apparel. Available in All Terrain Brown, and Universal Field Gray.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“We’ve definitely have a fondness for classic American styles, but update them with more contemporary cuts, modern performance materials and considerations for EDC. This Roam Jacket made with our Expedition Cloth soft-shell fabric pushes the classic American Trucker Jacket into the 21st Century. One of the first things we updated were the flapped chest pockets, which might have been great for stashing your pack of Marlboros back in the day, but it made much more sense to be sized to fit today’s smartphones. The 4-way stretch adds much more mobility and comfort, and the DWR finish adds protection from the occasional drizzle to rain shower. We also added that extra level of tailoring by adding a full liner in our equally technical Guide Cloth. This is the only trucker style jacket made today with soft-shell and the modern touches we put into it. The Roam Jacket EC is a timeless classic updated with smart details, and technical materials for today’s wearer. Built to last and expertly stitched in California, USA.”

The Roam Jacket EC will be available for purchase for $245.00 on Wednesday, November 24th, 2021 at 12:00pm PT via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

    I’ve been critical of Patrick basically copying all his old TAD designs with his work at PDW before but it’s cool to see them expanding their lineup as they have with some of their newer products. Cool stuff.

    I would be ok with them if they revamped the garage jacket from ~2010.
    I wore one of those out completely and would love another one.
