Merrell Gatherer Jacket

Merrell Gatherer Jacket

The Gatherer Jacket from Merrell is a translucent shell with no insulation, but equipped with a number of zippers throughout its body where the wearer can stuff the jacket with whatever insulation material is on hand – fallen leaves, newspaper, pine cones…! It allows the wearer to adjust their own climate to the conditions using adaptive insulation pockets through the body and sleeve. The only limit to your ability to stay warm is your imagination.

    That is a good idea. I have stuffed paper in a windbreaker to keep my chest warm on bike decents.

    This jacket certainly would be easy to fit in a pack with no leaves.
