Today in Gear: A Versatile Shacket That’s Water-Repellent, Pet-Proof Rugs & More
One of the most crucial elements to dressing for cold weather is layering so that you can adjust as temperatures fluctuate. The Samak Shirt Jacket from Backcountry is comfortable enough to work perfectly as a middle layer, but the metal snaps and exterior pockets make it a solid option for an outer layer as well. The Shirt-Jacket (or “shacket” if you will) is made from stretch-woven fabric giving you plenty of give as a shirt, and it has a water-repellent finish giving you protection as an outer layer. However you choose to wear it, this highly functional piece will be a great choice for keeping you warm in wet weather. Get it for 20 percent off with the code GEARPATROL20 at checkout.
