You don’t have to look much further than the name to see what the Explorer jacket is all about. Aimed at the touring/adventure market, this piece of outerwear not only looks the part, but can back it up with performance too.

A classically styled adventure jacket with a box-fit to throw over some layers, the Explorer has a two layer design. The outer is a cotton twill with an inner beeswax coating, so tightly woven that you’re not going to feel any wind while wearing it. It also sports a 900mm water-resistance rating. The garment is XTM-Fiber® lined, providing all the abrasion resistance you will need in a lightweight package. Extra protection comes in the way of removable Level 1 armour at the shoulders and elbows, and back protector pocket if you wish to upgrade.

A hardy YKK zipper and buttons are built to last, and you can guarantee all-day comfort thanks to the multi-stretch material. Plenty of storage options thanks to the patch pockets, plus adjustable cuffs, a reinforced stand-up collar, and a wind flap for the front zipper make for an incredibly practical jacket that looks like a classic, but performs like a modern hero.

The John Doe Explorer jacket’s mantra is simple - there’s always something new to explore.
