Typically, I’m not much for sporty, or contemporary looking pieces (both in what I feature here and what I wear in real life). However, when faced with temperatures in the teens and below, sometimes you gotta make a concession or two – especially when it comes to outerwear. Thankfully, there’s the Sastruga Mk II Jacket from English brand Finisterre. Painstakingly crafted in an ISO 9001 certified factory in Portugal, the jacket is made from water-resistant, 100% recycled / recyclable polyester ripstop, and insulated with Primaloft Eco synthetic insulation. On top of it’s eco-credentials, the jacket also boasts a slim, active cut, so you can keep warm without feeling restricted, or looking like a marshmallow. Add to that a lifetime guarantee, and a sizable donation of profits to charity, and really, the jacket is barely a concession at all. Hell, I’d probably even wear it on less than frigid days.
