Inspired by the classic M-65 military jacket, Norse Projects' Nunk jacket is an update as good as any. It's not often an obvious reference point for Norse Projects, but the utilitarian nature and ideals of the M-65 jacket and military outerwear in general run through Norse Projects' ethos as a brand on top of that classic Scandinavian mentality of clean lines and blank space.
The Nunk jacket is one of the most popular items of outerwear from Norse Projects and for good reason. Updated in a host of colourways and materials over the past few seasons, the spring/summer '15 rendition is built from a water resistant, resin coated cotton shell. It comes unlined but has internal storm cuffs and neckline; perfect for the changeable spring weather.
As well as looking brilliant, the functionality levels of the Nunk jacket are top notch too. There are two large, external pouch pockets and two zip closure internal pockets, as well as a stragetically placed phone pocket just inside the zip. he sleeves are articulated, meaning they are seperated internally into two parts with a working joint, for added flexibility and breathability, and the waistline and hem can both be adjusted.
Finishing touches such as a reinforced, peaked hood, hidden front zip closure and Norse Projects' signature external white tab all compliment the minimal design of the jacket. The Nunk Jacket can work equally well on a cold day over a host of other layers, or on top of a lightweight t-shirt or shirt for the warmer days.
