Rocket World Ronin- 10.06.09

ronin0.jpgOn products that i’ve put through the paces a bit more than usual before sharing with you, when i was up in SF the guys over at Rocket World gave me one of their new Ronin softshell jackets ~ it was hot that day. Super sunny out. But i was curious, it felt incredible, lightweight, thin, warm, and i was about to embark on one of my whirlwind trips (remember i just did LA-Paris-Reims-Paris-London-NY-LA?) ~ and those are all cities you never know quite what to expect in when it come to weather! Luckily it was primarily gorgeous out the whole trip ~ but on those days when it got iffy (which was at least one or two on each leg of the journey!) ~ the Ronin definitely came through. Like when they say to be ready for “all weather” for the Veuve Clicquot harvesting… oh yea, basically any time i didn’t need to be in heels and looking a bit more polished? You’d find me in the Ronin, tank top, and jeans. This unisex jacket fit beautifully (my sister and i both love the XS ~ that’s her modeling it in the pic in the Hazlitt’s room so i could get images of the patches to share with you) ~ and while i always loved that you could put any velcro patches you wanted on ~ with this latest jacket i almost don’t want to because the detail of the sewn in skull and paw print are so subtle and awesome. As with all Rocket World gear, the Ronin is of the highest quality, the subtlest branding, and really the details will blow your mind in person ~ every zipper, every pocket, every little headphone jack hole, every angle of the hood… is meticulously thought out. If you’re looking for something sleek to get you from running around the city ready for anything to exploring the great outdoors with some understated styling… i’m definitely smitten with the Ronin and its versatility, definitely making it on my “must pack” list for unexpected adventures! … take a peek at more pics on the next page!

patrick has some great gear they also make a creature hoodie under the rocketworld brand and more Tacticool stuff under TADgear.

----- cmecha 07.10.09 11:50

Yup ~ TAD Gear and Rocket World are practically one in the same ~ both the products of Patrick Ma and his amazing team!!!

When I saw Ronin, I thought “Burton”. Wow made in USA, like that!! Usually this stuff is sourced (en masse) from China. Tad gear and Rocket World are the same or affiliated.

----- Anthony 07.10.09 03:16

Rocket World is owned by the same guys that own Tadgear. The bag is a tadgear messenger bag.

----- Jason 07.10.09 02:33

@Tommy P I could be wrong, but I think the bag is a TAD Dispatch.
The ronin looks like an awesome hoody for biking in!

----- chernwei 06.10.09 22:39

Can you tell what bag is featured on the rider in the two action shots? It looks really cool. (MOLLE straps on the side??)

----- tommy p 06.10.09 13:30

That looks a lot like the jackets on TADGEAR.com and it is the logo.. hmmmm.

----- Joseph 06.10.09 09:57

Jean, you rule. This is one of the best finds yet for NOTCOT. Literally drooling on my keyboard for this one. ;)
