The M-24 field jacket specifically designed for woodsball takes natural material technology and innovates for the fast passed, dynamic game of paintball. Design details inspired from historical field jackets, this new prototype incorporates shooter insight and careful patternmaking for ease of use and intuitive compartmentalization. Using a mix of 2D and 3D prototyping, this jacket protects both the back of the head and hands from enemy fire.

Project
Brief

How can we create a jacket specifically for woodsball that is more protective and meets the demands of the game?

Comfort

  • Articulate shoulders where movement is needed

  • Select stretch material closest to the skin

  • Protect the player from paintball hits

2

Durability

  • Weatherize outdoor material

  • Use notions that are built for the outdoor environment

  • Ability to wear with added gear

3

Sustainability

  • Explore cotton technologies and match the durability

  • Use natural ways to strengthen outer material

  • Create a built to last product that gets better with age
