After a few goes in Duckworth's WoolCloud Vest you'll never want another traditional down or synthetic-puff jacket again. Why? Well, when down (read: plucked bird feathers) gets wet, it becomes a mushy, wet ball, and when synthetic fillers get wet and worn, they become increasingly compressed, providing less insulation and less bang for your buck. WoolCloud, however, is filled with a proprietary Montana-grown Merino Wool batting, which never loses its loft and insulation, and actually chemically becomes warmer as soon as it's introduced to water. Lightweight, relaxed-fit, and boasting a shell of 40 denier rip-stop polyester (water resistant), the WoolCloud Vest features a metal snap front, two welt hand pockets, a shaped hem, a stylish oversized collar with front snap closure, and one inside chest pocket (large enough for a large-sized smartphone). The finished product: a versatile, warm, durable, and breathable vest perfect for outdoor and casual needs in all four seasons. Wear it as a layer under a heavier coat or wear it over a long sleeve for a night out - there are no wrong answers.
