First it starts with the raking of leaves. Then come sudden discoveries of new leaks in the house, and finally, mornings spent shoveling your car out and scraping ice off the windshield. Winter weather is hard work, but thankfully enough for us, companies like Fjallraven are here to build outer layers as strong as their Ovik Eco-Shell Jacket.
This outer layer form the Swedish outfitter is just as ready for adventure in the nordic as it is for keeping you warm while you run between classes or shoveling snow from the driveway. Made with the company’s proprietary Eco-Shell technology, it manages to be windproof, waterproof, and breathable all at the same time. Made up of three different layers, the eco-shell fabric repels water and snow from the surface, while allowing for the escape of moisture through its polyester membrane so you won’t overheat while trudging through the snow or kicking up leaves. To top it off, the coat just looks good. Featuring a bevy of pockets (two breast, two on the rear, and another two by the hip) and a smart cut, it is a solid choice that is sure to last season after season of winter wear whether in the ‘burbs or the woods. Prices set at $500. [Purchase]
