BEHIND THE SEAMS
10 reasons why we love The Last jacket:
1: It is made of Ventile cotton.
2: Ventile is water-resistant and extremely breathable.
3: Over time and with extensive use, it develops a beautiful patina that gives the jacket a unique character and personality. Think of it like a fine vintage wine – it only gets better with age.
4: The Last is designed to last for many, many years. That's why we have added extra protection to the areas that are more susceptible to wear and moisture.
5: The Last jacket has all the functionalities that an outdoor jacket needs.
6: It features a spacious hood with necessary tightening mechanisms and, of course, enough space for a helmet.
7: The Last Jacket comes with Use More + 2. This means the jacket includes two free repairs with the purchase. Check out Use More + for maintenance tips and how to best care for the garment!
8: Both Ventile and The Last Jacket are produced in Europe. This ensures that the people who make the product receive fair wages, good working conditions, and that the entire value chain is maintained through strict requirements and high standards.
9: Each jacket has a unique serial number embroidered on the arm to highlight how many people have been involved in developing the product in recent years. And the count continues.
10: The Last Jacket is designed to be used today and still feel current in 50 years without feeling outdated. It has versatile details that make it suitable for the mountains and also for everyday city life
DEVELOPED WITH OUR CUSTOMERS
Over the past four years, The Last has been tested and developed by us and over 300 people. Based on our customers feedback (see here or read the comments at the bottom of this page), we have made improvements and developed the products that are in stock now.
This is the 5th and the final version of The Last. We still have a few pieces of the 4th generation available at a lower price, which you can view and order here. The key changes from generation 4 to generation 5 are:
- Womens version
- Improved tightening at the bottom
- A larger mobile pocket on the left chest
- Longer zippers under the arms
- Pullers on the zippers under the arms for easier opening and closing
- Smaller patches on the elbows
- A new design for the label on the inside
Last but not least, the 5th generation comes with our repair service Use More +.
ONE JACKET FOR EVERYTHING
The goal behind The Last is to create the only jacket you need on a road trip in the northern hemisphere. Imagine going on a trip without an agenda; you might go skiing, to the movies, climbing, hunting, cycling, sailing or just hang out in the sun. And imagine that you only have room for one jacket. That is what The Last will be. Many people can't imagine only owning one jacket. We're here to challenge that misconception. Own fewer clothes and pack less. That is the essence of our philosophy.
MADE WITH ORGANIC COTTON
The jacket is made in legendary organic Ventile. You can read more about the fabric here. Here are a few benefits:
Wind and water resistant
Ventile is great in any situation. The only exception might be hours of pouring rain, but a big part of Ventile's fame comes from the technology that keeps wind and water out. (It was originally developed for fire hoses.)
The fabric is relatively light and very breathable. Unlike GoreTex, Ventile is also comfortable against the skin.
With Ventile you can sit as close to the campfire as you desire. Because it is 100% cotton, it is very heat resistent and will not melt. It also won't catch fire easily because the fabric has such high density.
Ventile is known for its patina – it ages well. That is also a key element in our design philosophy: Timeless. We have researched jackets from the past 100 years, and have reached a cut, design and color palette that won't go out of style for the next 100 years.
1. Large hood that fits over helmets. Drawstring for adjustments in front and back.
4., 9. & 12. Reinforcements in shoulders, cuffs and elbows in ECO 400, a more robust material for better durability and extra protection from rain.
13. Water repellent YKK zippers make for easy ventilation under the arms.
15. Oblique cutting for extra protection around wrists.
