Topo Designs Tech Trench
The venerable trench coat has just been given a new take. Whether it is for protecting your business suit underneath or giving you unparalleled style while trekking the trail, the Tech Trench 3L is sure to keep you warm, cozy, and dry.
It may not look stylish, but the heart of the Tech Trench 3L is in its superb waterproofing which is rated 10K. To put it in perspective, you’ve got to fill an extra-long 1-inch diameter tube with water until it reaches about 32.8 feet or 10,000 millimeters before you can expect water to start leaking through the fabric. That’s how waterproof the Tech Trench 3L is, leaving many trench coats wanting they have similar technology in their fabrication.
The 3L naming corresponds to the Tech Trench’s triple layer of 6-oz fully bonded nylon fabric complete with a tricot mesh on the backside. It’s a sturdy and dependable trench coat regardless of where you want to test it. The seams are also taped to make sure that no moisture will ever escape through such tiny holes.
While the Tech Trench is definitely tough against the possibility of moisture ingress, it is surprisingly friendly to the skin. The inner surface of the trench coat is lined with an extra-soft breathable material that lets you feel like you’re wearing a plush jacket instead of a worthy raincoat.
There are pockets galore on the Tech Trench 3L, too. From snap closure pockets up front to side seam pockets and even an internal security pocket, there’s no limit to what you can carry in the trench coat. You can easily put your slim front pocket wallet inside the zippered security pocket or perhaps your other essentials on the chest pocket.
Coming with a length that sits just at the middle of the thigh, the Tech Trench 3L still retains the classic fit and styling of conventional trench coats. It may not have what it takes to land any catwalk, but it is its remarkable waterproofing that keeps it well ahead of the completion. Add to this its wind-proofing and you’ve got a venerable all-weather outerwear.
