Rain, snow, sleet, bracing cold. For most, they’re all very good reasons to stay indoors. But for runners, embracing the elements is elemental. The rain keeps us cool, the snow blankets the scenery with beauty, and even though it might look like we’re suffering, every runner knows that after the first mile, you don’t really notice the weather. Unless of course, you’re not properly prepared for it. With our Nor'easter Jacket, you will be.
FORM THAT FOLLOWS
Track jackets serve a purpose. Ski jackets do too. Jackets are built for a variety of purposes today, so why should runners settle for a re-purpose?
We designed our Nor'easter Jacket as runners, for runners. It's cut for speed and flexibility, without the bulk of sweats or puffy outerwear. Custom cuffs are designed to offer added protection for your hands and wrists with an internal cuff to keep the draft out. The collar is high and soft, and the length in the back is slightly extended to keep your hindquarters warm and dry.
A MATERIAL DIFFERENCE
We needed the Nor'easter to deliver serious performance in serious weather, so we scoured the earth for the most serious fabric we could find. We found it in Switzerland.
This Schoeller fabric has a 4-way stretch water-wind-and-everything-else-repellent nylon shell bonded to a luxurious and washable merino wool on the inside. It moderates temperature and completely resists odor while protecting you from external meteorological assault.
And the added stretch allows us to tailor the fit, eliminating billowing and blousing so the jacket moves with you instead of working against you.
