You don't have to be an intergalactic smuggler to justify donning the Smuggler's Jacket from Betabrand, though it might help you feel like one. Constructed using durable, breathable, water-resistant softshell fleece, it features a zip-close chest pocket, flap-close pockets on each sleeve, and two zippered hand pockets that create hidden pockets inside the jacket for your most covert missions.
