I absolutely love this winter jacket. Made using dense Pendleton virgin wool, the material blocks icy chills while its “deconstructed” style means it layers well and is still lightweight enough for running around the city.
The piece is a part of the “Triple Black” collaboration between Pendleton and Nike’s outdoor division ACG. The jacket has a really modern feel and does a great job combining traditional materials with Nike’s expertise in sportswear.
This is demonstrated in the attention to detail and functionality, such as the magnetic closures on pockets and waterproof zippers. The jacket also has a removable hood, seams and shoulder patches reinforced with ripstop nylon, a storm flap on the collar, and thankfully minimal branding.
Over all this is a great jacket for anyone who wants to achieve a classic look without sacrificing warmth.
Currently the jacket is only available in North America and retails for $400 which at the current exchange rate is about £257
