There are a lot of things in life you have control over: shoes, blood alcohol content, and choice of girlfriend to name a few. There are other things in life you have little control over: thread count, favorite sports team, choice of girlfriend, and the weather. If you live in a city that isn’t a comfortable 80 degrees year round, you’re going to need some clothes for those times when hell freezes over. Since it’s getting to be that time of year, you better start shopping now. The Patagonia Wanaka Down Jacket doesn’t just have a ridiculous name, it’s got some ridiculous features. Fleece lined pockets to keep your hands warm. 600-fill down to keep your nipples in check. Waterproofing and and insulated hood to keep you dry from top to bottom. All that utility and it still looks good enough to wear to the bar.
