The Pocket Jacket – Before you is a reproduction of a favorite jacket of Lance Corporal Jack White, a recipient of England’s highest honor, the Victoria Cross. Jack White was known for being a bit of a bad ass and while Cool Hunting was looking for gear during their Zambian Adventure, the guys at Private White V.C. were called on to make a rugged jacket. There wasn’t anything more bad ass than the one Jack White had worn for years. The Pocket jacket is made from sturdy cotton weave and refined with a Nappa leather collar. The stress points use copper rivets, and lap seams cover the jacket to ensure long-lasting durability.

This is the ideal tool if you happen to be missing arms, and lack the ability to lift the propane tank and give it a good shake. Seriously? A $50 tool plus a compulsory iPhone app just to know how much propane is left in a tank? The Refuel proves that technology can take many steps forwards, but every once in a while it can take a step back.
