A badge of honor, evolved.
Birdwell Competition Jackets have been a status symbol in the California surf scene as far back as the 1960s. As one of the first products we made—just after our board shorts-wearing one with a matching pair of Birdies marked a surfer as a member of a team or club. That often resulted in nods of respect or feelings of envy at the local break or boardwalk.
Cut from SurfNyl TM and double-stitched for unbeatable durability by expert craftspeople in Santa Ana California, this edition features everything we love about our classic jackets with a few updates with outsized impact. With a mesh interior liner that delivers comfort and a less rigid feel, plus a more tailored fit, this jacket wears better than ever. Horizontal stripes pop off the easy-to-pair olive green for a classic style you can take just about anywhere.
