Engineered Garments Liner Jacket

Engineered Garments' Liner Jacket really does offer two for the price of one with their new season reversible take on a US military fishtail parka. One side is a military inspired olive drab outer shell, the other, a full fleece get-up. It doesn't end there... The jacket is enriched with details and features like a detachable hood for protection from the bitter winter elements. The jacket is lightweight, yet very warm due to the padded insulation, and features underarm holes for ventilation. Did we mention it's reversible? Without doubt one of our outerwear highlights for the AW22 season, coming from a brand who never miss.
