White Mountaineering has put together one of the strongest collections of this season and it's definitely a shame that it's not available around these parts. The soft knits, pants, hats, bags and socks are all stronger than most western brands are producing, but it's this Shell Luggage Jacket that I am really loving. With a technical interior of Gore-Tex and solid shell, you would need nothing more than a cozy layer underneath to stand up to any weather. I prefer the tan version although both are amazing. The pocketing feels perfectly balanced while mixing in great zipper use and a hand loop link on the chest. The length of the jacket is a little on the shorter side which is nice with such a technical jacket as well. It allows you to let a EG Baker poke out the bottom and give the look some texture and depth while keeping you protected. As it's made for the Japanese consumer, the sizing is smaller and the fit looks slim. It could be a great option for those looking to invest in a technical outer shell that looks great in the city and on the ski hill in early spring.
