I saw this Norse Projects Fyn Shell and for like 8.7 seconds I forgot that the entire world has either hit the pause button or is searching for the remote in order to do so. I’m not proud of this—I don’t need to explain to anyone how dire this situation is and if I do, I’m probably not the guy you need—but it happened. That Cadmium Orange hit hard enough to knock me out of existential dread for a moment and I thought everything was normal and that I could be wearing this jacket during inclement-but-manageable weather scenarios all spring.
Made with a 100% Gore-Tex fabric with a water column pressure of 28,000mm—seems good—and lined with a carbon-coated backer, this windproof, waterproof, yet breathable hooded shell two interior zip pockets, three exterior zip pockets, adjustable cuffs and fully sealed seams throughout. It’s a great jacket.
So yes, things aren’t good right now, and no, retail therapy isn’t an FDA-approved treatment for anything. But I can’t imagine buying a well-pedigreed jacket from an independent retailer would make things worse. Also, donate to good causes. That is universally approved and help is desperately needed everywhere
