In keeping with the company’s overall design philosophy, Kitanica’s Mark series of jackets are intentionally overbuilt so as to endure heavy abuse while still providing great functionality. And although the Mark VI is the lightest member of the line, and the first to include a stowable hood, it still lives up to the brand’s reputation for rugged dependability. Constructed of 330 denier Cordura nylon, which has a coating of water- and wind-resistant urethane on the back of the fabric, the jacket also features a Taslan nylon liner and all seams are sewn using durable, bonded

No. 69 nylon thread. The jacket contains seven external pockets, including two zippered, hidden, upper compartments and a left bicep pocket with four covered pen tubes, and four internal pockets, including two large hammock pouches for bulk storage. In addition to the adjustable and stowable hood, the Mark VI also features adjustable cuffs, an adjustable waist, articulated elbows, double zippers and three Velcro patches. MSRP: $450.
