Into the Wind
When the winter wind is whipping, our favorite layers need a little more reinforcement. That’s why we’ve crafted a headwind-ready version of our best-selling Downeaster, featuring wind-blocking overlays on the front, halfback and collar to protect against Mother Nature’s worst. The addition of the overlay makes this mid-layer perform like a jacket. Wear it over a base layer on brisk, freezing days and you’ll be ready to do battle in the headwind.
The Downeaster features a double knit blend of 60% Merino wool and 40% polypropylene. The natural properties of Merino offer warmth, breathability and odor-resistance, while polypropylene improves wicking and insulation. Not only does polypropylene have the lowest thermal conductivity of any fiber, which means it holds onto heat the longest, it’s also hydrophobic, quickly pulling moisture (i.e. sweat) to the surface where it can evaporate, rather than be absorbed into the Merino. The end result is a high-performance mid-layer that protects from biting winds.
No Days Off
No Days Off is our annual call for consistency, moderation and patience: the full-time, year-round commitment to the process. This is not a race towards injury, but a recognition that little and often beats grand acts of ruinous excess. A commitment to consistency means embracing the elements and training through the darkest days of winter. Our No Days Off Collection is carefully designed to help you weather Mother Nature’s worst. Every purchase ships with a free 2022 NDO Poster while supplies lasts for tracking your progress in the year ahead.
