the packable jacket

penfieldchevak

it’s rain season and travel season and that means you need a rain jacket to take on all of your trips.  but you don’t need a big bulky number that’s gonna weigh you down and make you sweat.  you need something light and portable.  behold the penfield chevak packable jacket.  it’s lightweight, nylon and fits in its own pocket.  not evening kidding.  is your mind blown?  i thought so.  it will fit nicely in your suitcase, backseat car pocket or even your golf bag.  and you can eat it too if you run out of food while camping.  i’m just kidding.  i thought i sounded way too much like an infomercial.  for real though, this is a solid rain jacket for spring and summer.

penfield outback vest

i meant to buy a new vest last fall, but never got around to it.  every man needs a good vest in his closet.  i’ve been wearing one of these light weight numbers from lands end for two years now.  it’s time for an upgrade.  after much deliberation, i decided to go with the outback vest from penfield.  it’s one of their “iconic” pieces – made of their 60/40 cotton nylon and insulated with 80/20 premium down.  i couldn’t settle on a color so i flipped a coin between british green and navy.  it landed on british green.  i don’t think i’ll be disappointed.
