hey what's up this is all coin here for this video we're checking out some more stuff from a riot division which I've already looked at a few times in the past with a few different jackets and stuff they recently launched their ss-18 collection to some attention online there are a couple of different jackets a few different pants a few mid layer options as well and they were kind enough to send me one jacket and one pair of pants as well so thank you very much to those guys for this video I'm gonna be focusing on their lizard jacket which at three hundred and fifty dollars I believe is their most expensive jacket today although in tech wear terms still
00:36
a fair bit under what you might see from the likes of a CG and all those other kinds of brands when I saw this on the website I immediately thought this was the most interesting thing of the season so let's take a look the right division lizard jacket is a parka length jacket in its default configuration which comes in both black and olive or khaki I've got the olive version here I thought it made a little bit of a nice change to all the black jackets I seem to own in the back of their stylistically this is very geometric very brutalist there's a lot of very clear obvious pocket
01:07
placements and very straight lines and this to me is very typical of riot division style and I like that this is something that they're doing they're very much developing their own aesthetic to the point that I feel with the right division you can more easily tell that it's a riot Division jacket compared to a lot of other tech wear brands out there particularly the ones on the slightly more affordable side of the spectrum a lot of tech wear brands go for that off center or off axis kind of thing whereas with riot division it's always very boom-boom pocket pocket zip zip but still with the same kind of
01:38
detailing that you would expect from a tech wear jacket aside from those pockets and zips that I mentioned though the branding and the other design features are actually kept to a minimum on one of the arms there is a Velcro riot Division badge so that's a small piece of branding and you can take that off if you don't want it towards the base of the jacket there's a little riot and a vision tag and that's it so the design of this one pretty much does the talking rather than any kind of branding you'll also notice that that extended parker length of the jacket is almost split off from the main body that's not
02:09
just a design thing there a function behind that as well which I'll talk about a little bit later in the video in my opinion the sizing here is pretty good the modularity jacket that I got last year was a little bit too big for me in large whereas this comes up pretty much perfectly and large is normally the size that I would take for t-shirts and jumpers and stuff so it's not too tight anywhere it doesn't feel restrictive in any way and the articulated arms help with that a little bit as well so it feels like you can move quite freely in this despite it being quite long heard a neckline do a pretty good job as well the neck comes up to a similar kind of level that you
02:41
would expect from a lot of tech wear jackets a little bit higher than most High Street stuff and the hood is decent as well it fits my big head so that always gets a thumbs up from me before I talk about the coolest feature of this jacket I'm going to go over the pocket detailing quickly so at the top there are two taped zips one on each side this is easily big enough for any big sized smartphone and you can get a few extra bits in there as well so there's definitely ample space up there and the bottom two pockets are even bigger so you can pretty much get anything you want in there they really are pretty
03:11
deep but that's it in terms of pockets there isn't anything on the inside you'll only find a little riot Division label which is quite cool but not a pocket I know some people do like carrying some of that stuff on the inside so that's gonna be a bit of a shame for those people but the top two zipped pockets from a security perspective in terms of getting stuff stolen and from a water is it in this perspective because those zips are taped and those will still do a pretty good job for keeping you stuff safe the sleeves are adjustable with the velcro as well that's my preferred method for altering the tightness of the sleeves
03:42
it's definitely a step up from the modularity jacket which had little poppers and the their Kickstarter jacket the city jacket that had the weird kind of pull cord things and I think it's better than that as well onto the coolest part of this jacket now and the reason why it's called the lizard jacket not because it lets you control world governments but because like a lizard you can shed your skin not your actual skin that would be awful but the bottom part of this jacket totally unzips to change it from a parka length jacket into something much shorter and
04:11
that is of course the reason why it's split at the front and then once you've pulled that extra length off you can turn it inside out through one of the pockets and then that can all be folded up and put into a little bag basically so you can carry off with you or just pack it away somewhere although this does have a strap so you can carry it I don't really see it being that useful when you'd have to be pretty desperate to unzip the part of your jacket just to then carry it somewhere with you but the fact that it packs up into a little pouch is pretty useful cause if you're carrying a bag or something like that with you then you
04:42
can very easily just stick it in there and you don't have a really big unwieldy sheet of material to deal with or if you decide long-term or for one season you would rather just go for the short jacket then you can very easily store that little pouch away without having to keep attaching it back to the jacket for fear of it getting lost or blowing away or whatever so for me the real value in this is not that you can change on the fly between two different looks because let's face it you're probably not going to do that because the zip is slightly unwieldy and then you have to pack it up
05:14
and that sort of thing but the fact that this jacket gives you two distinctive looks in one buying tech wear jackets obviously is an expensive hobby so you really want each one to do as much work for you as possible and this one gives you access to two distinct styles you've got a very winter appropriate long length Parker and then you've got something which is perhaps a little bit more summer ready certainly a bit more lightweight in the form of the shorter jacket and the outcome of that of course is that you can wear this jacket in more outfits and more scenarios which is
05:44
always a good thing and combine that with the fact that this comes in very neutral very tech appropriate olive and black colors and that the design of it is while distinctive - right Division is not particularly kind of outrageous or crazy in itself then I think this is going to be pretty flexible and it's going to be something that you can easily wear in quite a lot of different outfits unfortunately for you guys the weather outside of the last few days has been like mid 20s and sunny so I can't exactly do a rain performance test but
06:14
I'm going to talk about the material of this a little bit anyway the material on paper is pretty similar to previous right division jackets this boasts aka millimeters of water resistance and breathability for reference gore-tex is 28 K so it's a fair bit difference of that but I think in most rain scenarios unless you really are kind of out on the slopes on the side of a mountain pouring down with rain for an entire day you'll probably be okay I can't see this soaking through it does however have a slightly different look and feel to the
06:45
transformative jacket it's a little bit coarser texture wise and it feels like the material has a little bit more texture to it whereas on the previous one it was a very smooth almost slightly shiny material the material isn't the same on the inside of course this is a three layer jacket so there's the membrane layer on the inside that you'd actually be touching and because this is a summer jacket in theory there's no lining or anything so it's just for rain protection as opposed to actual warmth but it does mean that if you're wearing this for like a t-shirt or something not that you would necessarily do that that your skin is gonna be touching that
07:16
membrane layer directly which is not as comfortable as a lining would be that combined with the material being quite stiff this is a similar level of stiffness to gore-tex I feel that it's not the most comfortable jacket for summer wearing in the world but the good sizing in the articulation do you help with that as does the double zip so you can open this jacket up a little bit which definitely helps on the maneuverability side of things the unzipping and reattaching of the lower part of this jacket can be a little bit fiddly I'm not a hundred percent used to it yet so I've only done it a few times but as I say I think the
07:48
transformative nature of this jacket doesn't really lend itself to being used on the fly it's more at the start of the day before you go out type thing so on that basis it's not quite as bad that can be a little bit fiddly and as I say probably over time you will get used to the mechanism a little bit better so overall I feel like this is one of if not the best a jacket from riot division yeah I think the transformative functionality is really really cool it works well it genuinely does give you two different looks of jacket which is
08:18
potentially quite important if you want to get maximum use out of something I think a softer or a more pliable material could've worked well here particularly on the basis that this is supposed to be a spring summer release and this does especially a parka length of very much feel like a winter jacket I know it's online so it's not really warm or anything but nonetheless it just feels quite heavy duty when you're wearing it there's decent pocket space even though there's nothing on the inside I think it looks good it fits pretty nicely as well the look fits well with riot divisions aesthetic which they're building
08:49
over time and I think this is going to fit pretty well in tech wear outfits too so although 350 dollars this is quite expensive by a riot Division standards in the broader tech wear spectrum it's certainly not as bad as a lot of other jackets can be and I think it will make a good investment if you're looking to get into tech wear and you want multiple looks without having to splash out on multiple jackets but overall I have to say I feel very positively about this one and that is pretty much everything on the right division lizard jacket do you let me know what you guys think about this one I hope you liked that
09:21
transforming stuff I'm glad that right division are willing to experiment with this kind of thing and I think this is one of their better transforming experiments as I said earlier it's currently extremely hot in the UK so I'm gonna finish this video before I turn to pure liquid so thank you so much for watching if you enjoyed it please do give it a like and that is everything so I will see you in the next one chatter I'm nerdy you know and shout out to Matt Oberlin I didn't know that vest was a UK exclusive word so I guess we're
09:51
all learning something today thanks so much for getting all the way to the end of this video if you want to catch some more they're gonna be going up there either side of this big ol head of mine and if you haven't subscribed yet but you've been enjoying some tech wear videos you want to catch some more then there's gonna be a little bun one of those two sides as well and you can click that you can be subscribed and then when more cool tech stuff comes out or general fashion sneaker heavy stuff whatever I feel like doing basically and that's gonna be up there as well
