Is This The World’s Best Photography Jacket?
Langly camera bags have been all over the globe (to all seven continents, in fact). Now they’ve created a photography and travel jacket designed to follow suit. Going where the adventure and the camera lens leads, while keeping you and your gear dry along the way.
Meet the Langly Field Jacket. It’s kinda impressive.
Protection when you need it the most
Wind, rain and snow are not friends to camera equipment. But venturing into the elements is sometimes unavoidable in pursuit of the perfect shot. The Langly Field Jacket is designed to offer reliable protection from the elements, both for your precious kit and yourself. Inspired by the M-65 field jacket designed for military use, the Langly Field Jacket features timeless style, three-layer weatherproof construction, and multiple pockets to keep items organized and accessible.
The jacket features Langly’s proprietary Weather-Shield Technology™ that keeps wind and water at bay while enabling breathability and perspiration wicking. The jacket also features taped seams and adjustable Velcro storm cuffs for maximized weatherproofness. Lightweight yet durable, the jacket is made with a micro ripstop weave fabric that will embrace demanding photography and travel environments.
And when you’re venturing into warmer weather? Nifty zippered underarm vents will help keep you cool on the go.
Organization on your terms
The Langly Field Jacket has been designed in a way that allows you to easily organize gear to suit a variety of needs. A selection of pockets are on hand to accommodate a range of items including camera lenses, an iPad, water bottle, wallet, sunglasses, pen, keys, batteries and more.
Externally you’ll find two upper and two lower snap-flap cargo pockets, along with a left sleeve pocket. These are ideal for storing quick-access items at the ready. Take a look inside and you’ll discover four further pockets, two upper and two lower. The upper pockets feature an RFID-blocking lining to securely store cards and keep personal details safe on the go.
But this jacket has even more tricks up its sleeve. Pass-through channels allow you to covertly route headphone or battery charger cables from the exterior pockets to the interior upper pockets.
And in photo configuration mode, the Langly Field Jacket also offers a tether system that attaches to the front pockets and can be utilized with Langly accessories such as a battery or film pouch or memory card holder.
The little details that make a big difference
The Langly Field Jacket has been designed with mobility and comfort in mind. Raglan sleeves allow unrestricted freedom of movement while retaining the clean silhouette. And with its adjustable wireframe hood you can easily adjust it to your desired shape and size.
Additionally, the jacket features a scalloped back which ensures coverage and protection even when you’re kneeling down or bending over. And for added functionality the logo is reflective, helping keep you visible in low-light conditions. Subtle and practical details that round out a thoughtfully considered, user-friendly design.
Built for the streets, the road and the unknown beyond
Photography and travel necessitates being able to deal with the unexpected. You can’t always know what conditions you’ll face. But you can plan ahead to deal with them effectively, whatever they may be. The Langly Field Jacket combines weatherproof, durable and breathable construction in a design that’s highly versatile. A design that keeps photography and travel essentials secure yet accessible. And with its clean styling, a design that moves easily from urban to outdoor settings too.
If you want a jacket that will protect and organize your gear on the go, while offering reliable and weatherproof construction, consider slipping the Langly Field Jacket into your carry setup.
