Shop Winter Jackets by Brand
|I love and hate winter jackets. I love shopping for winter jackets, buying winter jackets, and writing product descriptions for winter jackets. Actually, not so much on that last part. When it's freezing outside, I'm always happy that I have my winter jacket but that's just it. I hate when it's freezing outside and winter jackets only symbolize the cold. Everyone is always telling me that I should take up skiing or snowboarding or skeleton racing so I could have something about winter to look forward to. But nothing about taking up a sport that requires me to get cold and wet and bruised in order to learn and partake sounds like that much fun to me. |
I think I may start wearing my winter jackets during the warmer seasons in order to associate them with things I like more. Of course it will be hot so I won't be able to wear much else. Flip flops and a winter jacket, my new look (shorts are optional, underwear is not).
In order to join in on this trend before it gets too big you should check out our new jackets. Why look like a follower when you can join me in being a trend setter? Plus there are tons of different kinds of winter jackets to choose from. You can get a jacket with synthetic insulation or down insulation. There are soft shell jackets or hard shell jackets. Heavy duty winter jackets or some that are casual and they come in all the best brands like The North Face, Patagonia, Mountain Hardwear and Arc'teryx.
Down Jackets & Insulated Jackets
|Down Jackets: All the best things in life are down: pillows, rappers, and winter jackets. Down jackets are perfect for heading up trail or down town. Down insulation can warm you up when the temperature drops down and pick you up if you are feeling down. These amazing winter jackets will have you jumping up after laying down and spicing up events where people quiet down. Crank the volume up and push the gas pedal down as you race to find this season's greatest down jacket. For a little help with your search I would check out the Patagonia Women's Down With It Parka which will have you feeling up on all the latest trends. Or the Mountain Hardwear Men's Sub Zero down jacket which won't slow you down on your way up. |
Synthetic Insulation Jackets: Whenever I used to think about the word synthetic I used to think fake. That's before I discovered synthetic insulation. Now I think real real warm. Winter jackets with synthetic insulation provide a ton of warmth with less bulk. Check out the Patagonia Men's Nano Storm Jacket an ultra-light, easily packable, PrimaLoft insulated jacket. Or you can try the Arc'teryx Atom LT Hoody for men or women which offers CoreLoft insulation in the torso, arms, and hood. Easily layered or worn alone to stay cozy and warm all day.
Casual Winter Jackets: Casual winter jackets are for the casual individual, the casual outdoor enthusiast, the casual antique collector. Appropriate for any situation to which you are not fully committed, including that sticky situation with your bf. Know this, despite your lack of enthusiasm you will be looking good. For example, The Mountain Hardwear Women's Commotion Retromotion jacket. This snazzy plaid number will turn heads no matter what endeavor you're half-heartedly pursuing. For those guys interested in doing something half-ass this winter, The North Face Men's Salinas Jacket is a snappy military-inspired way to not commit.
Hard Shell &
|Softshell Jackets: People say "going soft" like it's a bad thing, but when you wear a soft shell jacket its quite the opposite. In fact, these jackets are commonly known to make people feel like a hard ass. (side note: I just learned that I can say ass on the website so now I'm trying to say it as often as possible). Seriously, soft shells are kind of amazing. They offer protection from the elements without any kind hindrance on mobility. The Men's Arc'teryx Gamma MX Jacket, for example, is engineered for high levels of breathability and mobility while still providing ample protection. The Patagonia Women's Guide Jacket combines stretch, wind-resistance, and high levels of breathability. |
Hard Shell Jackets: What do turtles, M&M's and eggs have in common? Hard shells. What else has hard shells? Well, a lot of things but the best things are cool winter jackets. Hard shell jackets are probably my favorite kind of jacket, because they are totally awesome at keeping you dry by themselves or layered with something warm and insulated for a full winter jacket experience. Hard shell jackets make you feel secure. Like you could go without a structure of any kind for a few days because you are carrying your own around with you. I wonder if that's the kind of freedom turtles enjoy all the time?
If you're in the market for a new hard shell, or even if you're not, you should look at the Marmot Men's Super Hero Jacket, because how could you not with a name like that. And because it has an awesome Gore-Tex shell. Ladies, the Arc'teryx Beta SL is superb. Gore-Tex PacLite. Do I need to say more?
