For me, a deck jacket is one of those pieces I lust after but is never quite perfect. Battenwear may have changed all that with their newest take on this classic outerwear piece, the Batten-Down Deck Jacket.
Following up on their Batten-down Parka and from previous seasons, the new Batten-Down Deck Jacket takes the best of these previous designs and ups the ante. Tailored to fit at the waist for better maneuverability than the parka, but with that small heavy-duty down fill, the Batten-Down Deck Jacket is nothing to shake a stick at. Its 60/40 cotton/nylon shell makes the jacket water and wind-resistant, and the ribbed collar, cuffs, and fleece-lined hand warmers will keep you toasty. The jacket is available in four classic colors and the cotton content in the shell means these jackets will age nicely and break in beautifully over time.
Available for $590 at Battenwear.
