The Adidas x GORE-TEX Karkaj jacket is the latest iteration of the packable outerwear style that aims to deliver exceptional comfort, versatility and style for wearers to take advantage of. Designed by Conroy Nachtigall and coming in a demure camouflage color option, the jacket is characterized by its adaptable aesthetic that will allow it to be easily worn traditionally or carried on the body when the temperature rises. This makes it ideal for travel and helps to eliminate the need for a bag to stuff the garment into between wears.
Nachtigall spoke on the Adidas x GORE-TEX Karkaj jacket saying, "We were looking for a way to pack the jacket into itself while on the move, so it could be done in one motion or a series of motions, and that could be done without having to stop and focus on cramming it into a pocket or pouch. The system relies on a particular shape for the jacket to turn into itself smoothly. The end result is that it turns into a bag — but this shape also creates intermediate steps which can be worn over the shoulder as a kind of accessory.”
