This year Vans is doing a Collaboration with Iron Maiden. The Etienne Jacket is nothing more than a spring shell but it rocks the fuck out like no other. At the end of the season I had a pair of Vans to warranty and like usual they lost my boots and just issued me a credit. So since I really love Iron Maiden and well this jacket just screams bad ass I’m getting this for my preseason/post season fix.
Here’s the stats from Vans:
VANSGUARD 5MM/5MM OXFORD
DWR COATED FABRIC – COZY COMFORT HAND POCKETS –
|CRITICALLY/FULLY TAPED SEAMS – CLIP – PASS POCKET|
|WAIST GAITER JACKET-TO-PANT INTERFACE – ARTICULATED ELBOWS –
|POCKET ACCESS HEM DRAWCORD HOOD ADJUSTMENT –|
BRUSHED WR JERSEY CHIN GUARD –
ADJUSTABLE CUFF CLOSURE OPTICS POCKET WITH CHAMOIS –
AUDIO INTERFACE – POCKET KEY
Definitely not a super high piece of technical outerwear but its got Maiden on it and is better than the Hoodie I usually wear preseason, plus I don’t need boots so I might as well use this credit up.
Since its the Trooper Jacket here’s a video from when I saw them live this past spring. I had better seats than the person that shot this.
