OK. So this was a concept piece by Merrell last year but it’s just one of the best ideas ever so I figured I’d share in case you missed it (I just dug mine out of my closet to empty it for spring). The Gatherer jacket is a completely translucent, 100% nylon jacket that allows the wearer to adjust his/her own temperature to surrounding conditions using adaptive insulation pockets throughout the body and sleeves. It’s a do-it-yourself piece that encourages the use of sustainable materials and re-use. It’s a puffy jacket without the puff. You decide what to fill it with. It’s perfect to take on vacation or hiking when space is at a premium.
This is my first post. A test actually…to see if I am capable of doing this.
