Nowadays, if you’re living anywhere other than San Diego, the weather in the U.S. from January through April can be a fickle beast.
In New York City last week, we went from 5º-50ºF in a matter of days, not to mention fluctuations in precipitation. Needless to say, this required cycling through a gaggle of coats in a very short period of time. But while there’s no one coat to rule them all, there are some that work well for a variety of climatological situations.
Like: the Nova Series Insulated Jacket from Proof, which is currently marked down to a very reasonable $140.
Proof is a Huckberry-owned house brand (like Flint & Tinder, which we also love) that uses technical fabrics to create performance-based basics. This jacket is ideal for fluctuating winter conditions thanks to a very thin but still incredibly warm layer of insulation. It’s also got four-way-stretch nylon, which makes it great for layering — something you’ll definitely want to do if it’s below freezing outside.
Keep in mind that this isn’t a replacement for your parka, as it’s not really made for subzero temperatures. But thanks to a water-repellent shell, it’s great for those days when you’re not really sure what type of wintry mix you’re going to get … so basically the next three months of our lives.
The jacket’s adaptability also makes it perfect for travel: wear it over a tee to stay comfortable in mild weather, combine it with a henley for anything chilly, and wear it over a hoodie for the coldest days. It also comes with a built-in stow pouch that can double as a pillow in its packed-down state.
Right now it’s over $60 off, so we suggest getting your hands on one immediately.
