Goldwin, the Japanese brand pushing the bounds of technical fabrics and style, started out as a small knit manufacturing company in 1950. Now, it’s one of the top activewear brands out there with its own Lifestyle collection. Each of the brand’s products are designed to perform at the highest level, while still maintaining sleek aesthetics that don’t look out of place in urban environments. The GORE-TEX INFINIUM W/S Down Short jacket is winter-ready and capable of keeping you toasty into the darkest depths of the winter. We took a look at some of the finer details of the GORE-TEX INFINIUM W/S Down Short to see how it stacks up.
1. The GORE-TEX INFINIUM Shell: The outer fabric of the jacket is crafted from cutting edge GORE-TEX INFINIUM, which is wind-resistant, water-resistant and incredibly breathable. The high loft Kodenshi down utilizes far-infrared radiation that prolongs the natural body heat retention.
2.Advanced design: As if the fabric and down weren’t doing enough, the jacket also features details that are designed to maximize how toasty you can get — like the down-filled hood and collar. Another added layer of cold-fighting design is its 3D down baffle structure with an adhesive finish, which provides excellent insulation in cold environments.
3.Practical touches: The two front flap pockets are a nice addition for storage and are also double-layered with side-access handwarmer pockets, so you can store and heat up at the same time. There is also a small zippered pocket over the left flap pocket for even more storage. And if you were thinking that isn’t enough storage, there are three additional internal zippered pockets so you can easily stash anything you need.
