Made from 100% DuPont™ Kevlar® Fibre, the 100 Year Hoodie is designed to look and feel exactly like any other hoodie in your wardrobe, but last your entire lifetime. It’s soft and breathable but highly resistant to rips and abrasion. So unless you’re saving up for cryogenic suspension, this hoodie should outlive you. Made from a highly technical industrial fabric, the colour of each hoodie is unique and unrepeatable. We have dyed and washed the aramid fibres to a dark grey and once they’re exposed to sunlight the colour will lighten, giving you an aged and lived-in look within days. This process of sun-dyeing means that even the same hoodie can look different from one day to the next. Lines, markings and colour shadings that emerge and fade each day, are all part of its unique character telling the story of its journey.

Trying to destroy our 100 Year Hoodie

Watch the 100 Year Hoodie in action

Over 24 hours we threw as much shit at our hoodie as we could. It was dragged at high speed on tarmac, over rocks, through rivers, behind a motorbike, a 4x4 and a speed boat. It was hit with sparks from an angle grinder and dried with a blow torch. The hoodie is so tough we didn’t even bother to bring a spare one.

100 Year Hoodie: Granite edition

Constructed in Europe. Milled in the US.

The fabric we've used for the 100 Year Hoodie is 100% Kevlar® fibre - we've not combined it with other fabrics or hidden it beneath other layers. The only other materials you'll find in the hoodie are the rubberised zip and durable draw cords which are more like rope in their texture and thickness, and are finished with heat moulded rubberised ends.

The fit and feel

The idea for this hoodie was always to make it look and feel exactly like any other hoodie in your wardrobe. So it’s designed to have a loose relaxed fit with a soft feel. While it uses industrial strength fibres, you simply wouldn’t know it until someone told you, or you put it to the test. The inside of the hoodie is extra soft with a cushioned fleece-like feel.

Looks better every day you wear it

We have already dyed and washed the aramid fibres to a dark grey. Once they’re exposed to sunlight the surface fibres will go lighter in colour, giving you an aged and lived-in look within days.This process of sun-dyeing means that even the same hoodie can look different from one day to the next. Lines, markings and colour shadings that emerge and fade each day, are all part of its unique character telling the story of its journey.

Guaranteed even on Mars

Kevlar® can survive at temperatures ranging from 300°C to -200°C. The same as you’d find on the poles of Mars and the surface of Mercury. So on the off chance you end up on a rocket with Elon Musk to Mars, the hoodie comes with a multi-planet guarantee. In the meantime we’re quietly confident it can survive the 2,000 washes, 4,000 wears and 100 accidents it needs to before you’re done.

Our 100Y range is kit built to last 100 years and be passed down to the next generation.
