For the moment, it's sunny.
We don't trust it.
And there is nothing worse — at least in the realm of outdoor weekend adventure — than the wrong gear in bad conditions.
Like a nylon shell in a downpour.
But learn from our mistakes — and let us share the fruit of our research: our must-have jacket for uncooperative weather, guaranteed to keep you dry and un-clammy.
Maybe you're hiking the Scottish lochs this summer. Maybe closer to home. When it rains, you want to be ready — with Swiss-made Schoeller high-performance fabric.
Let us tell you why it's better than that windbreaker you think will be just fine.
The Strathmore won't collect heat — that Schoeller fabric comes with a permeable membrane that'll breathe alongside you, meaning cooler, drier skin.

Of course it's waterproof.
And you know you want a piece of that storm hood.
Plus, that profile means it's equally at home in urban settings (for this, we like the darker, charcoal color.) Perhaps a bar.
We hope your summer adventures are taking you far and wide this summer.
Unless you're headed for a desert, pack this.
