mishka spetsnaz III

(via prolly)
as a recovering sneaker addict, i'm no stranger to mishka and neither is john prolly. i just scooped up the DART hat. recently, he's been working on the redesign of the spetznas cycling jacket. " Longer sleeves, tighter fit and we lengthened the back to cover your
ass crack when you're in the drops. It's still waterproof and has nice
pockets and vents. Two colors, red and black.

from the miska website:
"When we released the original Spetsnaz jacket, we never thought it would become a stalwart piece amongst the cycling enthusiasts.  The combination of functionality and form made the Spetsnaz a popular choice for city riders, couriers and weekend warriors alike.  Clean lines, simple design and sturdy construction have made this jacket a perfect shell for any situation.  Whether you are bee-lining it through city traffic on a bike or just feel the need to look good, the Spetsnaz Mark III jacket offers a little something for everyone.  Currently on it’s third incarnation, the Spetsnaz Mark III features taped seams, a fully breathable and windproof nylon material which is water proof up to 10,000 mm of pressure.  It also features more streamlined cuts optimized for riding, arm vents just in case you get stank, and a drop tail to shield your ass from the elements.  In short, this jacket was could withstand the rigors of riding through a tsunami without compromising looks.

Currently the Spetsnaz Mark III jacket is available online and at 350 (the store in ny) and retails for $209.99.  If anyone rides their trusty steed to the store we will offer a 20% discount on said item."


"This puppies got all you need for those rides or even walks around the city.
-Waterproof up to 10,000mm of pressure
-Breathable with its under-arm vents
-Fully taped seams
-Hidden pockets both inside and out

i really like this. when i get enough money i may scoop one up. i'm a strict nike windrunner kind of guy, and this is a really well built functional jacket. nike windrunners dont have this much functionality and isnt really made for riding. good stuff prolly! tell mishka to put out more fixed gear stuff!
