Mimikry / Snowboardjacket


Mimikry is a snowboard jacket with an integrated backpack which fits in the winter sport enviroment. The asymmetric and tridimensional structure obliterates the verge between jacket and backpack reminding the structure of mountains.
The backpack is fastened at three points at the jacket and is removable with one grasp over the shoulder. It offers space for snaks, bottles and tools. The inner hull of the jacket is formed by a vest which holds the height of the backpack and keeps it fixed at the body while snowboarding.
