Weather or Not
The coaches jacket silhouette – think snap buttons and a stand collar – has been a staple on the cross country course for decades, but hasn’t been upgraded since Adams State’s perfect score at Nationals in 1992. Ours offers an upgrade in the form of a unique water-repellent plaid corduroy that protects without overheating thanks to a breathable mesh liner.
Better Than Ever
Fans of cross country will remember the swish-swish of spectators jogging between the best viewpoints on the course. Many will also remember - with less nostalgia - the cling of nylon to skin, of poor breathability and poor construction. That’s why we’ve updated the snap button jacket in a water-repellent corduroy, offering both warmth, durability and a little sideline panache.
The jacket has a relaxed fit and features tonal snap buttons. A channeled drawstring with a leather pig-nose closure at the bottom hem allows you to cinch it tight.
For Cold Hands
Few things are more comforting than balling up the hands, gloves and all, into a set of spacious jacket pockets. Overlapped welt pockets will securely hold your essentials, while an interior pocket is perfect for stashing a phone.
Into the Distance
Drawing inspiration from cross country’s team spirit, we looked to the material traditions of Scotland and its traditional clan tartans. Home to the legendary Great Edinburgh International Cross Country race, which has drawn stars like Kenenisa Bekele, Tirunesh Dibaba and Eliud Kipchoge to its muddy hills, we experimented with the plaids, patterns and fabrics for which the region is renowned.
