    You may misunderstand the concept of cultural appropriation (regardless of if we believe it's happening within "techwear"). Japanese adaptation of American military/work-wear is not appropriation... however, if a Japanese design design something that uses Korean culture as its base, that would be appropriation. The notion of appropriation lies in power dynamics between cultures. I'm loathe to quote Wikipedia, but it's a good summary -- "Cultural appropriation, often framed as cultural misappropriation, is a concept in sociology dealing with the adoption of the elements of a minority culture by members of the dominant culture. It is distinguished from equal cultural exchange due to the presence of a colonial element and imbalance of power." The key is the dynamic between dominant and dominated... A fetishism and use of another culture that has been taken by force, or is often oppressed in ways that prevent it from expressing its own values, while the oppressor uses those same values and aesthetics themselves.

    Ah, in that case Stone Island, SI:SP, acr, and Arc’teryx (regular and veilance) have lots of options that are fantastic and a huge range in price. The obvious answer is J58-WS, but $$$ and hard to come by. The Veilance Mionn with Coreloft is another good option. Less expensive could be something like the Arc’teryx Atom or Cerium, both quite nice. The main Stone Island line has tons of stuff right now, and IMO some of the main line pieces and Shadow Project are becoming more and more similar in many respects. Probably even more from places like Patagonia if you want a more outdoors-y kind of thing. Edit: And of course the new ACG bombers and 3-in-1, if the patterns and colours work for you.

    Out of curiosity, why down vs something with a lighter weight to warmth ratio (I.e. primaloft)?

    I've done this, and with my transit card. I also use them sort of like the ski-pass arm pockets on lots of outdoors equipment... small papers, things you need to have handy but don't weigh anything. For those I really just use it as a zippered pocket, then inside opening is not useful... The other problem with putting your phone in the gravity pocket, besides fit and actually getting it out quickly, is that it's really annoying to have that much weight at the end of your sleeve. It hangs in a strange way, and when you lift your arm you have a small weight at the end of the sleeve.

A photo of the actual jacket: Also selling: Stone Island x Nike Sock Dart, black, size 12US (fits 11US). - Love these, but a little too big and the size down is too small. Very excellent condition, no noticeable signs of wear, non-original box - $100 USD + shipping Rick Owens x Adidas Level Runner II, black, size 11US - almost new. Bought size 11, really needed 10.5. Found some in 10.5, so now these 11’s are available. $325 USD + shipping

    These remind me of musette bags, lots of those around. @danii makes a great one. there are also simpler ones around, like this: https://restrap.co.uk/products/musette-bag Lots of cycling and climbing companies make bags like that with more or less features... Also vintage military...

    That's basically how I stow mine as well. I keep it rolled most of the time when it's not raining or cold/windy... Seems to be fine for the hood.
