Battenwear Batten-Down Deck Jackets

It is 88 degrees and muggy as fuck here in Des Moines, but I’m already dipping my proverbial sweaty stick into the heavy outerwear pool. While great weather is top notch and I know I will be cursing the gods come January, there is nothing better than a nice, warm jacket on a cold, cold day. The US-made Batten-Down Deck Jacket from Battenwear is just four-playing the shit out of me with its 60/40 fabric shell that’s wind- and water-resistant, ribbed collar and cuffs, and quilted down interior to keep the elements out and your body heat in. It even has angled pockets and a two-way zip; details that are aesthetically pleasing and fundamentally functional. It’s like it wants me to pray for temps in the teens, strong winds and a light snow flurry. I may not be ready to give up this weather just yet, but I will (eventually) give in to the powers of this $590 beast for a very sensual winter.
