Right now you’re wondering why in God’s name you would spend close to $1200 on a jacket that you’re only going to wear a few times a year. Plus, when you can buy space heaters from Wal-Mart for less than a bottle of Jack (jury is still out about which keeps you warmer) you would be crazy to spend that much money on a coat, right? Wrong. If your ass is stranded in the middle of nowhere or you’re just forced to trek into the bleak, freezing unknown that thousand dollars is going to be the best purchase you ever made. With Stone Island Shadow’s 2.5 layer Grid Cotton, detachable hood, air-vented, fur-edged, transforming (it’s engineered, not designed) Fishtail Parka you’ll be the guy that’s calm, cool, and collected instead of the guy that’s freezing his ass off. One of those guys goes home with a ski bunny, the other goes home with more than a blue face.
