I've very sparingly updated on progress with the Peak Oil Company, but I think I've made a minor milestone worth mentioning. FInally, I've settled on a design for the jacket - 4 or 5 prototypes down. I had this breakthrough after sinking the dollars and buying a walking foot sewing machine and going crazy with it. The jacket design is simple to make, easy to size and modify, gives a good range of movement, and looks pretty cool if I do say so myself. So far I've made it in oilskin, canvas and ventile.
