This is a parachute jacket – literally. The Buenos Aires-based Baumm makes colorful windbreakers from a patchwork of over 24 pieces cut from discarded parachutes that have maxed out their flight hours. It is lightweight, windproof, water resistant, super sustainable, one-of-a-kind, and downright awesome.
Each unit is uniquely numbered to maintain authenticity and assure the wearers of their one-of-a-kind construction. The jacket has a front zipper and 3 zip-up pockets.
Serial Number: M.a.98.23
Weight: 185 grams (6.5oz)
*IMPORTANT: Since these are truly unique pieces, the exact color palette varies from jacket to jacket. You won't find the same combination in a small that you will in a medium. The jacket you order is the one shown in the product photos.
Please note, some jackets may contain segments that are not upcycled parachutes. The segments are minimal and serve to reinforce structural integrity for the sake of longevity so that the jacket may live a long and happy life.

Great style for NYC living. I wore it out in the rain and it was mostly water proof, the bottom section (were the pockets are) was only water resistant. I think it would be better if the entire jacket was waterproof.
Also, it would be great to see the product on a model, because it was difficult to decide which size to get. Also, the online image of the jacket showed a section of the jacket as pink, but it was see through white and the color behind it altered what the actually color looked like. A model wearing the product would fix that problem.
The chat box allowed me to inquire about sizes. Good return policy too!
A really nice product! If it appeals to you, buy one, you won't be disappointed.
Upcycled Parachute Jacket (Large - L.a.29.23)
the jacket is well-made and beautiful and I love the lightweight fabric so much! I wear a small in most tops and the small jacket fits great.
My expectations for this jacket were minimal. But when it arrived I was so hyped to find it was exactly like the photo. Good construction and so interesting with all the different fabrics. My only negative is that I got a large and it’s just big enough that it fits but for a guy like me who likes a more oversized look, it doesn’t work. Unzipped it looks good but when zipped my big belly looks like it’s trying to bust out the zipper. Overall I’m so happy with it, it’s so different and unique. Highly recommend. Just make more sizes, like XL and XXL.
I love the concept of using upcycled parachute fabric to make unique pieces of garment at a reasonable price.
Easily 5/5 stars. Expedite shipping via DHL straight from Buenos Aires. Even the windbreaker came in a compostable packaging. Great product, hands down. I became not just a happy customer, but a fan of the brand.
