Women’s Patagonia Hyper Puff Hoody Review

This is a jacket built for belays, frigid camps, and the moments when the weather just doesn’t want to cooperate. Patagonia paid close attention to the details when making a cold weather hoody that will offer protection from a myriad of undesirable weather conditions. Their new HyperDAS insulation utilizes a vertical orientation for the synthetic insulating fibers, instead of horizontal. The result? A highly durable synthetic puffy that retains its loft after rigorous use. Women’s Patagonia Hype...

Montane Icarus Flight Jacket Review

In case you haven’t noticed, puffy jackets have evolved with synthetic options becoming more and more down-like every year. And while down remains the gold-standard for insulation, it still falls short when breathable insulation is desired. Thank goodness jackets like the Montane Icarus Flight Jacket exist because they show us just how far synthetic insulation has come.

3 Fall Wardrobe Essentials Worth Investing (A Little Extra) In

The further and further I get into adulthood, the less patience I have for cheap clothing that I'm only going to wear for one season. Sure, I love shopping, and I like editing and updating my wardrobe every couple of seasons, but I also don't like lighting my money on fire. There's nothing more frustrating than buying a cheap blouse or jacket online only to find it doesn't fit right or it falls apart after a few wears. That means that I'm much more likely, now, to spend a little more on the war...

Fjallraven Keb Eco-Shell Jacket Review

You know who knows how to make a great jacket? Fjallraven. The quality of their outerwear and lifestyle garments. So when the brand set out to design an eco-friendly shell technology that would still match up to their performance standards, I was interested. Shell technology is one of the most environmentally harmful parts of the outdoor product world, so any attempt to improve here is welcomed. The Keb Eco-Shell is a stellar product move in a positive direction. Fjallraven Keb Eco-Shell Feature...

Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Renaissance Painting-Inspired Collection for Moncler

For Italian luxury skiwear brand Moncler, Valentino’s acclaimed creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli has delivered a capsule collection that harks back to the forms of early-Renaissance paintings. The full-body, lightweight down-filled-nylon pieces—zip-up hooded capes, layered over padded skirts and paired with gloves—are out today.

The Coats and Jackets You Need in Your Life

Cute outerwear that will also keep you warm because Winter is Coming. Photo Credits: @halesbates I am guilty of owning (several) jackets that are purely for aesthetic purposes and not for keeping me warm. Now that I'm in college and I actually have to walk everywhere, those jackets just aren't cutting it anymore. As mentioned in our guide to clothes for college, a really important part of a "real adult" wardrobe is jackets and coats that fit well and are meant to last. Below is a list of the e...

Another Wallpaper Designer Collab for H&M’s Pre-Fall 2018 Collection

Recently, H&M has been on an home-interior-meets-human-exterior kick. Inviting wallpaper designers to help create affordable fashion is one deep, relatively untapped well, and H&M is here with their buckets. Previously, H&M worked with Anna Glover, a wallpaper and textile designer, on a beautiful collection of bold floral prints in classic shapes. Now, they’ve tapped GP & J Baker, another Britain-based wallpaper and textile designer, for a pre-fall 2018 collection. The Nitty Gritty on the H...

All the Magical, Technical Benefits of Vollebak’s Graphene Jacket

For the first time, a brand has been able to turn the notoriously difficult to work with, aerospace revolutionizing material, graphene into a piece of consumer outerwear. The thin, expensive graphite-derived matter is very hard to produce and manipulate—especially in large quantities. But London-based Vollebak has utilized it for their $695 reversible jacket—and it’s stunning. The material make it capable of “absorbing heat and then …

Black Diamond FineLine Stretch Waterproof Jacket Review

I love the tagline that Black Diamond has for this jacket – “There’s a fine line between splitter blue skies and afternoon thunderstorms in the mountains.” That is so true, and anyone who’s spent a season in the hills has a story of being caught out by unexpected inclement weather. That’s why it’s nice to have an ultralight, versatile shell like the Black Diamond FineLine.  Black Diamond FineLine Stretch Jacket Features: Built with BD.dry waterproof/breathable/windproof solution Stretch shell f...

Hurricanes Could Win the Metro in 2018-19

If it wasn’t already, the Metropolitan Division has officially become the toughest division in the NHL. Sure, the Central Division boasts two of the top teams in the league and the Atlantic Division has a meat grinder of a top-three, but the fact remains that the Metro has produced the last three Stanley Cup Champions and houses some of the biggest stars in the league in the likes of Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Artemi Panarin, and Mathew Barzal. The Carolina Hurricanes, therefore, will find th...

Trend: Long Blazers

Long blazers are a flashback to the late ‘80s and ‘90s. They’ve been on the fringe of fashion for a while and are gaining momentum.The lengths of the blazers cover the bottom, and finish on the hips about a quarter or a third of the way down the thighs.   The silhouettes vary. Some are highly structured like an equestrian jacket. Others are soft, floppy and fluid. Some are single-breasted and others double-breasted. The stance of the blazer is low, and that’s a very important design feature. Man...

Review: The North Face Women’s Summit L5 Ultralight Storm Jacket

Allow me to be clear: I am a minimalist-gear doubter. My conscientious tendencies and fear of being unprepared has me often side-eying ultralight gear. It is just too light. How could it possibly work well? These presuppositions I carried with me as I packed my bags for a week in the North Cascades in early June. I reached for the L5 Ultralight Storm shell only after I had already packed my bomber Gore-Tex shell, convinced that if weather rolled in I’d want something more burly than the L5 Ultra...

The North Face Women’s Ventrix Hoodie Review

The Ventrix has gained remarkable popularity as a jacket designed to insulate, breathe, and stretch. Active insulation is a hot topic in the world of outdoor gear, and the North Face took the technology a step further with laser cut perforations in high-heat yet low-exposure areas. These holes are intended to help dump heat and vapor by stretching (read: ventilating) as you work, then sealing in warmth by laying flat when you are at rest. Synthetic warmth and intentional design intersect in this...

Done Again In Columbus

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, The Capitals set up another heartbreaking, second-round loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins by first taking care of the Jackets. The Caps capped the series with a 6-3 victory Monday night in Game 6 before a crowd that did not have enough beer at Nationwide Arena. Oh, there was beer. But not enough. The Capitals trailed two games to zip after dropping a pair at home last week. They came back and won four in a row, three at Nationwide. For what i...
