CHPT3 1.61 Rocka Jacket
Gabba inspired and water-repellent, the CHPT3 1.61 Rocka Jacket is an ideal protective outer layer that combines performance, functionality and style. Perhaps the most striking part of the Rocka is the storm collar, which is secured with one button. When not required it can be wrapped around the back of the neck and fastened to the same button. This reveals the Rosso Fuoco colour inside the jacket, a bright contrast to the subtle colour of the exterior.
This two-tone material was specifically developed for this design and is 20% lighter than the material used for the Gabba yet it still retains the protective properties. The Rocka is not water-resistant but water-repellent as well as being highly breathable and windproof, providing the wearer with a great level of protection in all but the most extreme of conditions.
A storm flap protected front pocket is great for storing valuables, and the single rear pocket is ideal for storing nutrition or spare layers.
David Millar comments "The name originates from the motorcycling culture of the mid-twentieth century, the Rockers. I always felt more aligned to that than the scooter culture, the Mods (when it comes to going on my bike, I like to feel like a Rocker, not a Mod). Where the Mods would wear sharp suits the Rockers would wear leather biking jackets, most of which had wraparound buttoned collars.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a sharp suit, in fact, it was my tailor in London, Timothy Everest, who helped shape the collar and inspire the contrasting two-tone material, much like the suits he makes for his bespoke clients."
Please note, the CHPT3 1.61 Rocka Jacket follows the same inch sizes as you would see when purchasing a shirt as this helps to provide a more personalised fit.
