Today I wanted to talk a bit about the Duotek jacket, which bills itself as an ultralight reflective and reversible jacket

DuoTek ultralight jacket features

DuoTek is releasing 2 different versions of their jackets – The only difference is that the “Cool” is thinner and lighter while the Shield is made for colder climates.

Here are a couple of pictures of the DuoTek ultralight jackets
