Right now in Southern California temperatures are dipping into the mid 50s at night and denizens of the state are beginning to nonchalantly look for that sweater they like but haven’t seen in about a year again. For those who can’t quite find it or who are looking to maybe add a new one to the quiver, we’d suggest this Alpha Lite Shirt Jacket From Coldsmoke.
Constructed from a Japanese made water repellent ripstop nylon and filled with 80 grams of Polartec Alpha insulation this jacket makes staying warm simple and stylish. Polartec Alpha, originally made for use in the special forces, uses low density fibers to keep moisture from moving around freely and draining you of heat. As a result, wearers get a better transference of moisture from your body along with an even, consistent temperature. This, combined with the attractive cut and colorways available make this insulated shirt a perfect pick for those in the warmer regions of the country like California, where this jacket is handmade, or for those in the colder parts keeping their eye out for a good mid-layer. Get yours for $300. [Purchase]
