Click hereRocketworld's Creature Hoodie
with Jager

The I.nsurgents W.ilderness G.ruppo have made a bold move: They have made it possible for humans to become honorary members of their faction. With Rocketworld's Creature Hoodie we humans (considered the enemy of the I.W.G.) are not only protected from the elements in a quality Polartec jacket, we are able to show our support for a worthy cause... And have some fun doing it!

Click hereThe design of this fleece jacket is based on the bears in the G.ruppo, mostly Septimius since he's the black bear and this is a black jacket. Many things were done in the design to ensure that the Rocketworld aesthetic is intact as well as make a high quality jacket that doesn't just look nice; it feels nice and is made to be sturdy. But more about that in a bit, first let's focus a little more on the design. To make you look like a bear, the hood has eyes, ears, and a muzzle. Rocketworld's signature asymmetrical eyes are made of a shiny black plastic and look nice on the black fleece. The ears and muzzle are made of the same type of fleece as the jacket, but the muzzle is dark gray for some contrast. There is a nose of course and it's a little bit bumpy and has nostrils. To add to the beariness (I just made up a new word!); the sleeves have thumbholes and claws. The claws are a gray soft fabric and doní' get in the way if you're using your cell phone or picking your nose. The left sleeve sports a rubber Rocketworld logo and the right has a place where you can put your Velcro patches. There are six on the Rocketworld site and it comes with one. The design really pulls together for a great looking hoodie—it's fun and definitely a bear, but it isn't too overbearing.

Click hereNow, it's no doubt that all the details mentioned could have been slapped on a 10 dollar fleece jacket and it would have sold. The I.nsurgents would follow and get it just for the fun design. But that's just not Rocketworld's style. The company's founder is an ex-military man and when he wants a jacket, he wants one that will keep him warm, is functional, and have some nice pockets. So that's what he designed. This is a high quality Polartec Thermal Pro jacket. It sports two big pockets in the front that zip shut. Each is accessible from the inside of the jacket and has a hole for your ear buds. There's even a loop up towards the collar to keep the wires in check. There are also two pockets inside the jacket. There are two main zippers which allow you to zip up your hoodie and then zip it open from the bottom if you need to get into your pocket or loosen your belt after hitting the all-you-can-eat Indian buffet. The zipper goes up to about your nose to add to the warmth. I should mention this is a medium weight fleece. It's warm and when we were taking pictures, if my lady was walking she felt fine, but the wind was a bit cold when she stood still. But you'll see in the pictures it was a snowy winter day. Also, the muzzle acts as a bill of sorts and keeps the snow off your face. This is a nice feature as well. To top it off, there is a pen pocket on the left sleeve for fast access to your sharpie. So it's safe to say that the price tag is justified in this hoodie.

Click hereBut wait there's more! With each hoodie comes a limited edition I.W.G. minifigure. This is the only way to get the mini Septimius which comes with bones, a skull, and sniper rifle. This toy is very nice with clean paint applications and the subtle sculpt we've come to appreciate in the I.W.G. line. This version of Septimius is showing his colors with a green skull on his chest. This is a great addition to the mini line and follows suit with the full scale line with the rarer toys being black. Really a great toy and I'm sure many wish was available without the hoodie.

All told, this is a great start to a Rocketworld clothing line. I expect there to be more colors of this bear hoodie, and I wouldn't be surprised if a Hannibal inspired brown hoodie was down the road (I'm speculating... no, hoping here). I'm very impressed with the design of this jacket and the quality of it just blew me away. These are limited in number (only 444 pieces!) so if you can swing it, you should get one. It'll keep you warm in the months ahead and you'll be able to waltz right in on the next I.surgents W.ilderness G.ruppo meeting... if you can find it.

Click hereThese are available directly from the Rocketworld site. While you're there check out the great I.W.G. flash game, animation, and movie. There's also tons of information on the G.ruppo and everything else that Rocketworld has cooking.
