Men's sleeveless down jacket Friskett voile recyclée
This sleeveless jacket has become a must-have in the 727 Sailbags collection. Revisited by Manon, our stylist in Lorient, Brittany, this new Friskett down jacket gains in lightness, comfort, and elegance. Over a sweater, a shirt, or under a winter jacket, made of natural feathers and down, it will protect you from the cold.
Its waterproof zip and limited number of external seams reinforce the resistance of this vest to humidity and its water repellence. Very comfortable to wear with its full fleece lining that goes up to the collar and lines the side pockets, the Friskett down jacket is also functional and practical, especially for its two inside pockets: one zipped, the other patch.
The recycled sail inserts on the shoulders and collar come from a competition spinnaker sail that crossed the Atlantic during ‘’La Route du Rhum’’, the route of which is indicated inside the down jacket on a certificate of origin. The outer fabric and the fleece lining are made from recycled plastic bottles.
Here you are, ready to face any weather: let's go for the adventure, with the Friskett down jacket!

This product is made with spinnaker inserts. Invented in 1937, nylon is the oldest synthetic fiber used in sailcloth. Its lightness, elasticity and resistance make it the ideal material for the spinnaker of sailboats. Usually quite colorfull, the "spinnaker" is easy to spot on sea with its bubble shape at the front of boats sailing downwind.
