Half Sumo Reversible Bushido Jacket
From Half Sumo:
Inspired by the classic jackets of 1980's aviators comes this uniquely Half Sumo styled bomber jacket. A durable water-resistant nylon outer shell is matched with a fully sublimated polyester lining. The intricate hand-drawn graphics are rendered with extreme precision and color, in contrast with the minimal and clean outer layer.
As with all true aviator jackets, this flight armor comes with a reversible zipper. Wear it the proper way for a stylish black jacket. Get stuck in the night while flying solo across the country, reverse the jacket, zip it up, and stay super warm and visible while the rescue mission is on its way.
As with all our products, it won't be a half sumo design if it didn't have some extra details, that make this jacket extra resourceful. We have added extra layering on the shoulders to protect them from any kind of abrasion while carrying backpacks etc.
I multipurpose zipper pocket/slot holder on the left arm, can give you quick access to much-needed valuables, like keys, credit cards, or some miniature nunchucks.
The name tag on the back doubles as a convenient fabric hook, that helps hang dry the jacket after being out in the rain.
Most other companies always save some dough by choosing cheaper zippers etc, but we have selected the best zippers on the market -YKK - to go along with our new aviator one, for unparalleled durability.
This jacket was designed with cooler climates in mind. We have tested it while wearing only a rashguard underneath it on days where the temperature dropped almost to 0 degrees Celsius aka 32F, and it kept us warm and dry.
We found this jacket to be this year our go-to jacket anytime we stepped out of the house, either we were headed to the gym or to hang out with the squad.
Fits as expected. If you are usually size M, go ahead and order an M.
Comfortable, perfect size and designs look nice. Although I wish the pockets had zippers, it’s a sexy jacket.
Became a fave
Quality material and design by half sumo. I love the low-key design for the black side and in contrast the beautiful Japanese inspired art inside. Can be worn inside out, however, the design side does not have pockets, and the tag logo on the upper back will freely flap around mentioning your garment size.
I followed the recommendations with the description saying if I’m typically a medium, go with it. I have a hint of partial regret because the medium is quite tight. I’m unable to fit a hoodie underneath if I want to, and when I’m wearing a Superare sleeveless hoodie underneath, my arms will sweat inside and grow a bit more tight. So naturally while this jacket, I lose a bit of mobility due to tightness. I don’t want to risk ripping threads out or the garment itself from reaching my maximum ranges, I’m 5’9 175lbs (muscular/ripped), typically a medium. I’m not sure if large would have actually been a better size or not. It’s a bit complicated to exchange sizes when I’m from Canada, (and especially during a pandemic)
But overall, I’m a huge fan of the product. The jacket “inside out” mode looks DOPE on a chair or hanging. It’s basically art. Due to the lack of mobility and the open flap design, have to give this a solid 4 stars, if I could be more accurate I would say it’s 4.5/5 stars.
I’m happy with the product and would definitely still recommend it to others!
