Ideal Eastside weather is somewhere between sweater and puffy temps. The Alskar jacket from Kuhl hits this sweet spot square on, with a warm wool blend through the front torso and arms, and a baffled, down insulated layer along the back and shoulders. This is the perfect combo for keeping you toasty at rest but venting excess heat well while you're in action. If you haven't tried a wool blend fabric before it's highly recommended, you won't find a softer, more comfortable and functional insulating layer for cool weather activities. Plus there's a chest zip pocket for your phone and side zip hand warmers.
