Designed in Venice, California and built in Vancouver, British Columbia, Coldsmoke's products pay homage to the mountain lifestyle, and if there is an ideal time and place to wear the Men's Vets Black Tusk Insulated Jacket ,it is hanging out with good friends in the wintertime in a mountain town. Actually, scouting British Columbia's big mountain lines from a helicopter might be even more ideal. Coldsmoke takes its name from the beautiful way that wind gusts lift clouds of perfect powder snow from mountaintops, bringing multiple elements together in the perfect balance. The Vets Black Tusk Jacket finds a balance between vintage military design, Native North American inspiration, and modern technical performance. The jacket is modeled after the insulated liner of Vietnam era flight jackets and features warm polyester fill insulation, an adjustable hidden hood, and a velvety tricot hood facing. The beautifully embroidered back artwork features a traditional map of the territory of the native Squamish people alongside the logo of the Black Tusk helicopter pilots who bring skiers and adventurers into the British Columbia backcountry.
