Today, function is a given. Materials technology has reached a place where it’s no longer acceptable that a jacket or fleece not be lightweight, or warm, or waterproof — even if it’s designed for style first. Nevertheless, all outerwear exists on a spectrum, and some things are, objectively, better than others.
But subjectivity shouldn’t be discounted. There’s nothing wrong with falling in love with an anorak because of the pattern on its fabric, or a jacket because it’s Japanese-made and nobody else you know owns one. In fact, when function sits at such a strong baseline, style becomes more important. Luckily enough, there’s a host of small, elevated outdoor brands from all over the world that put a premium on style and fit that makes every fleece, windbreaker and wool shirt they create worth coveting. Even more fortunate is the fact that, while style and story come at a price, all of these things are currently 50 percent off at Huckberry right now. Here are five of our favorites.
