Winter officially started last week, which means there’s no better excuse to expand your outerwear collection. If you still haven’t found the perfect winter jacket, you’re in luck because we have one that just might suit you – Hawke & Co’s Flatiron down jacket.

Finding a good down jacket can be difficult; some are too shiny, many are too bulky, but this one fits just right – and guess what? It’s packable. Yup, all you over-packers can now take two or three options with you on your next ski trip. The jacket is light, compact, and comes in a variety of colors. All of the warmth with none of the weight.

The Manhattanite jacket is perfect for the guy who rides his bike year-round or refuses to close the sunroof in February. Unique shoulder detailing adds an urban layer of style. This style is also so light it will pack into its own pocket.

Hawke and Co. has been around for three generations – 150 years to be exact. It’s an independently owned and operated family business based out of New York City. They pay great attention to the detail of their many jacket selections.

The company has expanded immensely since their early days. They can now be found in over 20,000 locations around the world and they’ve managed to grow without any expensive advertising. Word of mouth and grassroot efforts have helped build this company into what it is today.

The brand offers sleek, stylish, and technically sophisticated outerwear at an affordable price. What more could you want in a jacket?

Hawke and Co. has some great post-holiday discounts happening right now, so make sure to check out the full selection of winter jackets on Hawke and Co,’s official website right here – hawkeandco.com

F.P. Journe closes the curtain on limited editions with one last watch
F.P. Journe releases its last limited edition watch ever
F.P. Journe Flyback Chronographe FB

F.P. Journe announced earlier this year that they would cease producing limited edition watches, though the "announcement" was more of a quiet whisper. The company is known for its small annual output of watches , which makes 1,000 mechanical and 500 quartz pieces. However, they would never end a party without a final confetti canon, and this one is in the form of a hand-wound flyback Chronographe FB.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their Tokyo location, they've introduced this last limited edition. Going forward, they will stop engraving edition numbers on their watches, meaning the 200 Chronographe FB models released will certainly be highly sought after.

I never go to the coast without this jacket from Royal Robbins
This anorak is cozy and built for adventure
The author wearing the wearing the Royal Robbins Merced Anorak on the Oregon coast.

Whenever I head out to coastal Oregon, I never know how to dress. No matter how often I check the forecast, the weather often turns out to be the exact opposite of what I've prepared for once I've made the hour-and-a-half drive out to the Pacific. If I wear a heavier jacket for a grey, foggy hike through one of the area's many state parks, it'll warm up as soon as I arrive, and I'll be drenched in sweat after a mile or two. If I'm hoping for a sunny walk around Cannon Beach, the rain will come through and the wind will whip up, leaving me running back east to chase the sun.

But this spring, I found a solution in a jacket that's built for all of these situations and then some.
Why I love Royal Robbins' Meced Anorak Jacket
This Merced Anorak from Yosemite Valley-inspired outfitter Royal Robbins has quickly become my go-to outdoors jacket. This lightweight, nylon windbreaker keeps me comfortable in just about any weather out in the Pacific Northwest. It's thick enough to be a decent lightweight cover-up in cool temperatures but still thin enough to not get too heated when the sun comes out. The wind resistance this half-zip provides is next-level compared to any other jacket I own — no matter how the wind comes off the waves, I know it'll never chill me to the bone.
