Until this popped up, my only exposure to Aether Apparel has been their monthly “marketplace” ad in Men’s Journal. Cool stuff, but didn’t realize they branched out beyond fashion-oriented-but-functional outerwear.
Now, after shelving the item for a while, they’ve reissued their Union cycling jacket with updates and better materials. And they’ve kicked things off by celebrating Ben Farver’s Argonaut Cycles by videoing him riding around in it…and making his beautiful carbon bikes. The jacket is water/wind proof with taped seams and a four-way stretch, breathable soft shell fabric. Bike friendly features include a gripper strip along the rear waist hem, pass thru rear pocket and JRC Reflex Matte Black reflective panels. Interior pocket has an audio port, pit zips help vent excess heat and all zippers are weatherproof.
