The right gear for the job makes all the difference (you don’t need us to tell you that, surely?) but when the task at hand is taking on the zombie apocalypse? In that case, allow star Pedro Pascal to show you how it’s done while wearing the famed Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket in HBO’s new series The Last of Us.
The series, which debuted last night to critical acclaim, adapts the video game of the same name and follows two post-pandemic survivors (Pascal’s Joel Miller and a young teenager, Ellie) as they navigate a zombie-filled world.
Suffice to say, something like the rugged Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket from Huckberry might come in mighty handy.
For good measure, critics have already called it the “best video game adaptation of all-time” (and the game itself was already praised for its exceptional narrative quality).
In the series, Pascal wears the Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket in Havana, a richly crafted color designed to get better over the time (whether you’re fighting off zombies or not).
The jacket Pascal happens to be wearing is already an all-time bestseller for the San Francisco and Austin-based retailer, which has been in business over a decade and sells everything from portable campfires to EDC knives, flannel shirts, leather boots and yes, trucker jackets aplenty.
The Flint and Tinder brand is a fan favorite in its own right, and of the jacket itself, Huckberry notes: “If you want to bring the game’s rich subtexts and gritty, realized environment to life, putting your cast in the right jacket is a damn good start.”
The specs on the Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket will stand up to anything, even if your wearing occasions are confined to upstate trips or weekend dive bar hangs.
It’s made in America from a weather-resistant waxed Martexin 7 oz. sailcloth, then lined with striped flannel for extra warmth (we know Pascal’s character assuredly approves).
And while the jacket itself is already a remarkable bestseller, it’s easy to see it becoming even more popular now that it’s shown up in such a lauded drama. The best part? The Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket is priced fairly at $268–do yourself a favor and pick one up in time for the next episode of The Last of Us.
