Heavy Jackets: Man's victory over nature

Heavy outerwear has been on the front lines of the battle between form and function ever since our ancestors skinned their first woolly mammoth. The Ice Age is long over and the fighting has cooled significantly – comfort and style aren’t mutually exclusive thanks to the eureka moment of high performing, bulk-free materials.

Credit goes to the state-of-the-art suppliers who create today’s outerwear, many of them alluringly- contoured pieces that happily conform to the finest of figures. Rich with features and ready for the most rugged outdoor environments, these jackets make satisfying clients less about patient persuasion and more a simple matter of show-and-tell. Chalk up one more victory of man over nature.
