Aether Apparel is a Los Angeles based outdoor clothing brand, offering performance sportswear with a refined modern aesthetic by utilising technical fabrics in a more sophisticated form. It is one particular piece of Aether sportswear that I would like to introduce to you today. It is the Union Bicycle Jacket – a 3-layer, soft-shell stretch fabric, waterproof.
Union is designed to meet the unique needs of urban cyclists and is perfect for commutes around the city and post-ride wear. Loaded with bike-friendly features, it combines all-around protection from the elements with a clean, tailored style.
The Union jacket offers a number of important features. For instance, weatherproof pit zip vents, an interior audio valve pocket, and a dual-access back pocket. All these packed into a lightweight jacket that looks just as sharp off the bike as it does on it.
Perhaps the most important feature of the Union jacket is its JRC Reflex reflective strips when riding at night. This innovative material reflects bright white when lit by a pair of headlights, but remains matte black under normal lighting conditions.
