In SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s January issue, they featured a select few “Puffy” jackets from different brands for their “Goods” feature. Here is a behind-the-scenes look at what really went down that day; from socks to sex appeal, and a very wise quote from a very wise man.
“Snowboarding is a cold endeavor. From the icy East Coast to the Midwest and the Pacific Northwest, cold fronts don’t discriminate, and no matter where you live, it’s never a bad idea to have a good down jacket in your closet quiver of coats. Down technology is feathers (or synthetic material that mirrors the real thing) packed tightly into a jacket in order to trap heat and hold it close to the body. Real “down” is the warmest, though if gotten wet, is harder to dry out while synthetic down isn’t quite as warm but will withstand soppy days on the slopes a bit better. Aside from the feather fundamentals of puffy coats, there are myriad details that one might consider. Fit, colorway, zippers, powder skirts, cuffs, and the like are all things that are tailored to your individual needs, so for this month’s The Goods, we decided to display these down jackets in a more “appealing” way in order to allow you to spend less time worrying about the technology that’s in these coats in order to spend more time wondering about the babes that are in these coats.” –Tom Monterosso
