You have your choice of throwback parkas, so many takes on what REI, Sierra Designs and co. did back in the day. Here we turn to something a bit more 2012. Tilak, a Czech tech gear company, take their name from a 3,500 year old expression meaning mark (tilaka) or a spot (tika) in Sanskrit. They describe this top notch piece of design as “A slim cut three-layer GORE-TEX Pro Shell jacket suitable for ice climbing, extreme skiing, and other ‘out there’ activities.”
The Evolution RPS is anatomically designed along the sleeves and hem and features an integrated ventilation system, seamless pockets, removable inner pockets and a snow barrier along the waist. We’ll leave the spec there, you probably get the picture. Another brand big in Japan, (Journal Standard and Soph collaborations done), Tilak’s range is well worth checking out. Find them here.
