The cooler climates of the festive season (unless you’re lucky enough to be necking a Christmas cocktail on the beach in Australia) call for warm clobber – cool, warm clobber. Here at The Coolector, we think there’s no better way of balancing cool and warm, than with a shirt-jacket, or “shacket”, and the AirLoft Quilted Jacket from innovative American Outerwear experts, Western Rise, is a stellar example.
Perfectly practical for strolls in the wilderness, yet modern and stylish enough for everyday use, the AirLoft Quilted Jacket offers wearable versatility in the broadest range of temperatures. Crafted from a sandwich of smart materials, made up of an outer layer of ultra-lightweight 4-way stretch fabric, Toray 60g 3DeFx+ hollow-core insulation, and an inner layer of light, 4-way stretch, breathable polyester, the AirLoft Quilted Jacket from Western Rise is light, breathable, and incredibly warm, without restricting your movements. You won’t find yourself taking off, or putting on, layers every five seconds, the next time you decide to wander up a mountain.
All fabrics used in Western Rise products are detailed in a separate section of their website, giving prospective purchasers an in-depth look at what makes up each item of clothing. The materials that make up the water-resistant, quick-drying, abrasion-resistant, packable (in other words, really good) features of the AirLoft jacket are sustainably Bluesign approved, aligning with Western Rise’s considerate company philosophy.
Available in both black, and green, the Western Rise AirLoft Quilted Jacket is an incredibly good-looking piece of performance clothing. Its combination of quilted exterior, black press-stud buttons, and two front pockets, makes for a super clean silhouette fit for any occasion. Stick it on with a pair of walking trousers, button it up and head for the hills, or slip on some jeans and a t-shirt, and wear it open for that smart-casual look.
We’ve been a big fan of Western Rise, since first discovering their gorgeous garments, and the AirLoft Quilted Jacket is designed in-line with their healthy company ethos of creating high-quality, functional and stylish performance clothing. They also pride themselves on treating people right, and protecting the environment – Western Rise is a great company to invest in. The AirLoft Quikted jacket is available over on Western Rise’s website now, at a bargain price for such a premium-quality item.

If you’re on the hunt for next go-to piece of outerwear, look no further than this belter.
