Modularity is good, especially during a polar vortex. The fluid, situation-specific re-configuration it allows lets you do more with less, and who wants heaps of stuff designed to handle one circumstance and one circumstance only? Hoarders, that’s who, and hoarding is most definitely not good.
Eastlogue’s Changjin 3-1 Battle Parka follows this philosophy by offering 3 outerwear configurations in 1 so you’re ready to handle a range of weather situations. The hooded waterproof and windproof coat features a 100% cotton Ventile shell with design elements reminiscent of vintage military jackets and can be worn on its own as a light jacket or a raincoat. Also included is a snap-in, hooded 90% down/ 10% feather liner that doesn’t lean too heavily on past cues. The insulated puffer has a contemporary design, with a high-neck standing collar and articulated sleeves, and is a nice looking piece on its own. Both items can be worn on their own, as situations require, or all together when it’s raining in the cold, you need the full suite of pockets, or when it’s so cold you need a shell to lock the heat from the insulated liner in place. A true 4-season jacket, rain or shine.
