In Paris 1965 Leon-Claude Duhamel watched people rush by in soaking wet clothes, carrying umbrellas which didnít look a comfortable solution to keeping dry. Leon Claude had a much better idea to keep the rain off and that would also be easy to carry. He came up with the idea of a fully waterproof lightweight jacket that would fold into a small hip bag and the In K-Way Jacket was born. In itís first year the jacket sold more than 250,000 pieces.
Now nearly 50 years since the great idea was put into practice K-Way Jackets are seen worn by many all around the world and have now become a classic item. A K-Way Claude or Leon Jacket can be found in the wardrobe of anyone who has an eye for a great jacket.
