What can we say about down jackets that probably hasn't been said before? Probably not much. People love these things, especially men. And they're made for men, after all, so I think we can all agree that this means they're really hitting the mark here. Why do guys love down coats? It's pretty simple really. Men love their down outerwear because girls love the way a guy looks wearing a down jacket. People know that if you're wearing a jacket like that, then you probably do some really neat stuff. Like climb up mountains, if just to ski down them. Or maybe camp out on a huge rock wall in the middle of a 3 day rock wall climbing adventure. This is the kind of neat stuff you can down under the power of a great men's down jacket.
I'm not gonna lie to you guys, I have a little bit of a problem. I own probably about 15 different types of jackets. Of course, I have each one for a specific reason or certain type of weather condition, or maybe a specific activity I'm doing. However, once I got my first down jacket, I rarely wear anything else. My down jacket has become my new go-to coat. I wear it for nearly everything I do.
Why rock one coat over anything else in my overwhelming plethora of jackets? Listen, when you find the one, you know. And these men's down jackets have versatility written all over them. Well, not literally, but hey, if you feel like tagging your new down coat with big words that speak to the adaptability and ultimate usefulness of your new jacket, then hey, by all means go right ahead.
When it's cold outside and I need to take out the trash, I simply put my down coat on over my t-shirt, and I'm as warm as I need to be. If I'm hiking in winter, spring, fall, or any time that's non-summer, you better believe I'm taking my down jacket with me. It's bound to be super warm in any situation, and it helps to regulate my body temperature. Did I mention it's also super compressible? I can take a medium sized jacket and compress that sucker down to about the size of a soft ball. How great is that? It's a radical, dependable jacket that we can play a nice game of catch with. Its compressibility also means that I have more room in my pack for my fancy colognes. It's important to smell nice on the trail for the ladies. I've also found that I get to cuddle up with more teddy bears that way, too. Teddy bears like a strong musk.
