Brace Against Foul Weather with the Rover Jacket

View all 11 Photos

Many jackets are designed to look weatherproof, sporting an array of zippers and straps and stuffed to the brim with insulation. But as many of know firsthand, this weatherproofing is often full of the sound and fury it claims it can protect you from, with the first touch of rain leaving you as soaked as if you’d left the house unarmed. To really get your money’s worth, it’s never a bad idea to turn to the designers who are committed to making a quality product (rather than hawking a large quantity of sweatshop work).

The Rover Jacket was designed from the sleeves up for foul weather, and is proudly made in California by hand.

The Rover Jacket by Taylor Stitch was designed from the sleeves up for foul weather, and is proudly made in California by hand. Utilizing a tightly spun cotton coated in a naturally water-resistant wax treatment, the coat is guaranteed to repel whatever nature can throw at your back. But along with keeping the cold out, the coat keeps the warmth in with a beautiful Moleskin inner lining. The materials combine in a subtle color palette, offered in both navy and dark olive, and wonderfully bounce off the shades of antique brass zippers and snaps used as well. Also taking into account the nightmare of wearing an overly puffy coat, the sleeves of the Rover Jacket have been left unlined to ensure more mobility where one needs it. And as a crowd-sourced product, the purchase of designs such as the Rover Jacket help break up the monopoly shoddy sweatshop-made products have on the market, by showing that customers will pay a little more to have a lot better quality (and morally responsible) apparel.
