If you’re like us, and the creators of the ONU Stretch Jacket, one of the worst parts of traveling is showing up to your destination with a mess of wrinkled clothes.

Between cramming things into a suitcase or the little gray containers in the security line, your clothes never quite seem to be as fresh when you need them most.

onu stretch jacketWe’ve offered a couple of solutions to this issue before and we’re equally excited to see another new jacket on the market that can stand up to modern travel rigors.

ONU’s clothing mantra has included simple colorways with well-tailored fits made of functional materials. The new ONU Stretch Jacket might be their most cohesive offering yet, blending a businesslike silhouette with Nydex fabric (combo of Nylon and Spandex) that won’t wrinkle and will move with you. Whether you’re reaching up to stow your carry-on or hustling to catch a train, the Nydex fabric won’t give out on you, meaning no unexpected rips or tears from an airport rush.

While it’s a slick looking piece, the fabric is equally captivating. Nydex is fast-drying, repels a host of things including water, sweat and stains. Meaning you can take this traveling with you from the tropics to Timbuktu and it will hold up to whatever the weather and the local cuisines can throw at you.

The three-way collar is a plus to adjust to whatever you might be wearing underneath. We think this would be great dressed up with a button down and tie, or dressed down with a plain t-shirt. The soft blue color is the perfect shade to match up with any number of patterns or lighter summer colors.

The Stretch Jacket is on sale now and you can get yours here.

Overland is the king of ski towns: Celebrating 50 years of American mountain west outerwear
How did Overland win over the mountain town
Taos Storefront 2023

Every industry has its mainstay brands that only get stronger with more competition. There will always be some new and fresh idea that challenges all those before it and tries to change the industry. Then there are those brands they face, who have been around for decades, weaving in and out of competition and outlasting every challenge thrown their way. For every new and exciting watch brand, there is a Rolex standing strong. While there are plenty of explanations for why a brand outshines every other around it, Overland Sheepskin Co. has an explanation all its own. On this, their 50th year, we look back and try to understand how this family-owned business became the King of the Mountain towns and what keeps them on top.

Back in 1973, the flagship store in Taos, New Mexico, took a bale of sheepskin and a sewing machine and began creating coats, hats, and mittens for the surrounding area. As word began to spread about their quality, the whole family had to pitch in to help out to meet the growing demand. Five decades later, with 17 stores throughout the Rocky Mountains and across the country, they have become a mainstay in the mountain and ski towns for their quality and dependability. We got a chance to sit down with Monty Goodson, manager of the Santa Fe store and a buyer for the company, to find out how they did it and how they maintain the culture that has made them who they are today.
