COOPH Field Jacket is waterproof, designed for photographers
Cooperative of Photography (COOPH) has introduced the Field Jacket, designed for photographers and made from a fully waterproof Swiss cotton fabric called EtaProof. The jacket features both inner and outer pockets for carrying photography gear, a quick-access smartphone pocket, and a small loop near the collar to fix a cable (from headphones or a microphone) in place.
The jacket’s material was first used to make overalls for WWII British Hurricane pilots, according to COOPH, offering a mixture of comfort and protection against hypothermia by blocking out water. Used to make COOPH’s Field Jacket, the fabric helps keep both photographers and their stowed gear dry without constricting movement or getting too warm.
