Fortunately, jackets like iXS’s Finja offer comfortable protection—and look good doing it. The Finja is what I consider a “temperate 3-season” jacket; it features a removable Cynix thermal liner, a non-removable water- ...

It was a foul green and smelled so bad my roommates wouldn’t let me come in the house wearing it––they made me hang ...
