Rush limited edition denim snowboard jacket from RipZone
3:04PM EST | comments (29) |

Rush snowboard jacketCanadian snowboard outfitter RipZone has teamed up with Rush to create a limited edition, denim snowboard jacket. From the website description:

Music goes hand in hand with Snowboarding. Just like beer and hockey, Canadians and flannel, Pam and silicone, cops and donuts. As Ripzone celebrates the 20th anniversary as a Canadian snowboard brand, RPZN has joined forces with Canada's biggest music icon: Rush. Inspired by some classic Canadian style from back in the day, the RPZN x Rush jacket is inspired by cut-off jean vests, complete with simulated leather jacket underneath. Mullet not included. Who didn't rock this look, eh?

This jacket is adorned with official Rush artwork. The interior features original album artwork printed in full-colour on a sateen liner. RPZN and Rush branding appears in the form of vintage inspired crests, blending with the look and feel of this rock-n-roll garment. RPZN has brought all the outerwear features you have come to know and love, making this a true technical jacket.

A limited quantity of the jackets are now available via the RipZone website and other snowboard clothing and equipment retailers. Thanks to Kelly P for the heads up.

Not sure why anyone is making a big deal about this jacket ,or that it means Rush is being greedy or "selling out",etc. I can't see that thing selling more than about 1000 units (obviously I could be wrong!!) . Not like that jacket is going to make a lot of money for them or anyone, is what I am saying.
Personally, I'd like it better if it was one solid colour. Either black or grey. Not the different colour sleeves.
#11- That was funny!

As you say, you didn't care whether they were cool or accepted before. So why care now. I don't!

I've really been lamenting the rise in exposure Rush have had over the last 4-5 years. For me Rush was always cool because well, they weren't really cool to anyone else (minus the true fans). I didn't care if they were 'accepted' or 'credible.'

I like this jacket, the over exposure and fair weather fans as much as the Rush fans that can't accept they made an album after 1981.

I feel so conflicted.

Before they cash out--can they please release a DVD from the TEST FOR ECHO tour? 2112 in it's entirety!!!!

Wait, isn't Rip Zone the wrong sort of name to have if you are producing _jackets_?

On the other hand these guys know the end is near and why not cash out. As long as they don't compromise the music, fuck it, get paid...

Uh, yeah....ummm...i can see the marketing lyric-to-product now on one of those items, jupe....."Hold the Red Star proudly high in hand".
