Jackets can be difficult to pull off. Some don’t quite fit right, others don’t match the outfit you’ve carefully constructed, while still others don’t even look like the ad said. Strongbody Apparel promises to change that with the Gastown Jacket. It’s a jacket built for almost any situation, able to be dressed up for classy events and dressed down when it’s a more relaxed evening. It’s completely waterproof thanks to a membrane in the middle layer of the torso and a water repellent film on the sleeves, so getting caught in the rain is going to be far less unpleasant. There are pockets too, which designers always seem to forget are useful and something we want. Production is in Vancouver and can be supported at the jacket’s Kickstarter page, where you’ll be able to pick up a jacket for 50% off future retail price.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
