The Swiss Army will forever be labelled as one of the world's most practical forces, thanks to the legacy of its infamous multi-purpose knife. Now, Italian brand Sempach is hoping to cement that reputation with a new range of outerwear directly inspired by another piece of Swiss military ingenuity: the field tent.

For their second collection, Sempach has developed a collection of men's and women's waterproof jackets using the same design specifics as the Swiss Army field tent. Fashioned from the same lightweight cotton canvas (laminated with a rubberized finish for absolute waterproofing), the jackets feature subtle nods to the iconic camping apparatus in the shape of herringbone zip pulls, metal ventilation eyelets and, of course, that instantly recognisable khaki green coloring.

These classic touches are paired with some thoroughly modern design flourishes, such as dual side zips, drawstring cuffs, boxy fits and even a hood that zips all the way shut with a twin triangular zip closure.

Over seven pieces the collection comprises three men's and three women's silhouettes, with a final unisex poncho completing things. In addition to the classic green shade, all models are available in deep navy and a clean, neutral off-white.

Already stocked at eminent boutiques including Antonioli Inner, Isetan, UNITED ARROWS and 18 Montrose, you can find all pieces on sale now.
