Now that the weather is getting cool we’re all gearing up to change up our closets and bring out our fall and winter jackets.
When you’re living in a cool climate, or one that has many seasons, one of the things to consider when buying outerwear is to purchase one that is transitional—one that can be worn between fall and winter.
This Roots Packable Down jacket is just that. And, if you’re one who doesn’t like super puffy jackets that make you feel like the Michelin Man, then this one is for you.
At a recent Roots Canada press event, I got to test out the jacket. It’s super soft and so lightweight that it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a jacket. Even though it’s so light, it’s super warm and wind proof. Best of all, it’s cozy and comfortable. It’s made from 100% nylon, and 90% duck down and 10% feather.
Also, if you like to know how your clothing is made, the Roots Packable Down Jacket is traceable. Each jacket comes with a serial number which can be used to trace the down origin, quality and fill power and provide test reports on the down used for the jacket.
You can also pack it up for easy storage or for travel.
You can visit www.trackmydown.com and enter your serial number for more info.
The Roots Packable Down Jacket is available at Roots Canada store locations. $168.
