What kind of jacket does Adam have?

I just came back from my mom's house, where I watched several episodes of Mythbusters (I live in a cave and dont have cable so when I can I watch it) but any way our favorite mefi Adam Savage, had this really great jacket on and I would love to know more about it. Of course...

It was green nylon(?) with many cool pockets and what looked like padding along the back. Just curious...

and if Adam sees this, I would have put a heavier weight on the actuator to see what happened to the bridge.

Best answer: A deep Google search says it's an Kitanica Protective jacket that's no longer made.

Since this has been answered wonderfully, I can only chime in to agree that yes. Heavier weight needed on the actuator, anything else is a failure -- FAILURE -- to serve the public.

I bet The Man told them not to do it on TV.

So what's the deal with that Carhartt-looking jacket that's cut off beneath the arms? It's like a macho version of a ladies' "shrug".

matildaben: sounds like a welding cape or bib.
