Vollebak has gained a reputation for creating innovative outerwear that is described as “clothes from the future.” In the past, the British label has tinkered with a solar-charged running jacket, a waterfall-proof puffer, 100 Year Sweatpants, to the latest jacket, which is claimed to be fully ready to withstand a zombie apocalypse.

Although known for their tongue-in-cheek humor, Vollebak doesn’t skimp on the details. The Apocalypse Jacket comes equipped with 23 pockets and a rugged material that the London-based brand states can endure everything from black lava to flash fires and chemical erosion. Vollebak achieves this by using a fiber called polybenzimidazole (PBI). First developed by an American scientist during the Cold War, the fiber has exceptional thermal and chemical stability, by retaining its integrity after it is exposed to high heat, chemicals and abrasion.

Additionally, PBI is incredibly sturdy — in fact, the material is said to be five times the strength found in firefighter uniforms, but still has a soft and breathable touch that is chemical splash resistant. Whether there ever is a zombie apocalypse or if you use the jacket in intense conditions, the Apocalypse Jacket is designed to last. The unisex garment is available to pre-order for $1,295 USD and will start shipping on February 2.

Elsewhere, Oi Polloi and Lavenham serve up a five-piece quilted capsule.
