The Windproof Jacket To Grab When The Weather Blows
Famed for its ferocious storms, Lake Superior has sent 350 shipwrecks (including the storied Edmund Fitzgerald) to its chilly bottom. Vessels on Lake Superior have reported wind gusts in excess of 90 mph, and sustained winds of over 70 mph. When a brutal wind like that whips ashore, it's good inspiration for a higher-performing kind of men's fleece jacket. The advanced soft shell fabric in our Shoreman's Fleece Jacket sandwiches a windproof, water-resistant yet breathable membrane between two compact layers of insulating fleece. The result is a bulk-free, easy-moving jacket that protects like the three or four clunky layers you wore in winters past. This is the same technology climbers and extreme athletes are using, but with an easy-moving cut built for real work, 7 pockets to hold your stuff, a new cordlock waist to seal out updrafts, and a price far lower than the $200 you'd pay in specialty stores.
