When it comes to foul weather clothing, nothing comes close to a good waterproof pullover. Goldwin took the time-honored design and gave it a much-needed upgrade and modern treatment. With a long history of making some of the best alpine wear out of Japan, Goldwin developed the GORE-TEX Mountain Pullover as an essential piece of technical wear. In addition to its tech chops, the Mountain Pullover is also stylish enough to take with you on any trip to the city or countryside — from a weekend trek to window shopping. We took a closer look at the GORE-TEX Mountain Pullover to see what makes it so versatile yet rugged.
1. Classic Utilitarian Function: While this may not be your father’s smock, it still has all the details you would ever want from one of those classic garms. Both the loose silhouette (easy to layer and take on and off) and its packable nature (folds down into its own mesh pocket) make it an easy choice for any trip or fit. Its large adjustable kangaroo pocket will also ensure you’ll get lots of function out of this pullover.
2. Modern Design Details: Thanks to the extra-long front zipper that lets you air out as needed, you won’t have to take off the GORE-TEX Mountain Pullover to avoid getting too stuffy. There is also a hidden hood and hem cord stoppers for a tidier look — keeping you free of tangling bits of cord and maintaining a modern and clean look.
3. Weatherproof and Featherweight: Crafted from GORE-TEX PACLITE material, the pullover is both completely weatherproof and incredibly lightweight. With added waterproof zippers, you won’t have to worry about any water getting in.
