OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2008

Icy winds one minute, sunshine the next. No matter how unpredictable the weather, the Men’s Reversible Mercurial Jacket can handle it. This jacket adapts to changes in the weather using a revolutionary baffle system. Worn black side out, the jacket offers the warmth and protection of an insulated performance jacket. As the temperature climbs, reverse the jacket for a cooling effect. The aluminum-coated silver side reflects about 40% more of the sun’s rays than the black side. And, the baffles that trapped warm air when the black side was out, now open for airflow. The final forecast? Clear skies ahead for this innovative, versatile jacket.
