Why a Bomber Jacket?

If you’re a professional and you’re dressing for OPSEC or if you’re simply a firearm owner and you are looking for a comfortable daily jacket, a bomber jacket will never let anyone know you’re carrying so many tools with you and that’s counts. Whether you’re trying to watch someone and not be noticed or trying to not be picked out of a crowd, the point is to not be noticed. Essentially, this is the same thing as your demeanor, which is your biggest ally or your worst enemy if you don't get right.

 

What's the point of a tactical Bomber jacket?

Security advisors certainly agree that complying with TTPs (Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures) of any threat requires staying 100% vigilant at all times. But since being vigilant at all times is impossible (people let their guard down as soon as they are on their way home or hotel), there are certain things that can help keep you prepared and ready. How? Wearing performing, transitional capes that can keep you out of trouble while going to or coming back from your long day at work.

 

What are the main differences between your three bombers?

Our mission was to design a transitional cape that would fit any use (professional and non-professional). The idea was to let people coming back from or going to work not need to switch jackets. This "transitional" approach then became important, especially when thinking about the weather and seasons. This is why we have created three bomber jackets: GB00, GR00, and GR01, along with the vest version, GV00, to keep you protected from winter to summer.

 

Are the Bomber jackets meant only for Professionals?

The GB00 model certainly is a professional jacket, but any other model (Kevlar or not) could be used from professionals and non-professionals in many ways throughout the day. The jackets are designed to fit lifestyles, professions, and outdoor activities.

Who can find your Jackets beneficial?

We encourage all law enforcement officials, paramedics, military personnel, security personnel, humanitarian workers, the press, outdoor enthusiasts, firearms owners, heavy-duty workers, motorcycle drivers, and anyone else not listed here to seriously consider the Gattopardo Jacket. A tool perfectly tailored to protect you every day.

Are the jackets made of Kevlar?

Yes, and since we do produce the fabric from yarn and combine it with other solutions that we are in the process of patenting, expect our Kevlar fabric to be the core of all our jackets. Our jackets are made to protect you, but in the event that your jacket is damaged, a second jacket made completely of Kevlar would appear below the front face of the jacket to show you that what you’re wearing is the real deal. The pockets are made from Kevlar and elastic is used for the tactical pockets.

Is Kevlar present only on the front of the jackets?

This is a serious jacket. There is a whole jacket made in Kevlar hiding between the front face and lining.

Do your jackets stop a bullet?

This jacket cannot stop bullets, but it was designed to allow space for your bulletproof vest.

Knives would have a hard time penetrating, and the damage would be limited. In fact, the blade would be stopped in case of slash.

Which part of the jacket is made from Kevlar?

Insulation: front, back, arms and pockets.

How heavy are the jackets?

Can I have any of the jackets listed without the protection of Kevlar?

Yes, you can order any of the models without Kevlar insulation.

What's the point of buying a jacket without Kevlar inside?

When owning a jacket that fits so many tools without sagging, it's good enough for you.

How much weight can the jackets hold?

Our jackets can hold over 7 pounds without showing any sign of wear and tear. Our jackets are also designed internally to dissipate the weight of the tools evenly around the shoulders and they don't sag under the weight of them.

Will the Jacket sag after filling the tactical pockets with all my tools?

No, the unique internal design of our jackets prevents the pockets to sagging down.

It will be safe to run with tool inside the jackets?
