Alchemy Equipment Laminated Waxed Cotton Jacket - Women's

Looks can be deceiving.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but let's get one thing straight—don't judge a book by it's cover because as most of us know, initial appearances aren't everything. So while at first glance the Alchemy Equipment Women's Laminated Waxed Cotton Jacket may look like all the other traditional waxed jackets on the market, its dapper silhouette, thoughtful construction, and pragmatic material usage make it anything but conventional and commonplace. Built with a waxed cotton exterior, this jacket has an additional laminated, waterproof membrane and fully taped seams that prevent persnickety precipitation from permeating your layers. In addition to its burly, nonporous exterior, the lightweight, pack-away hood is easily zipped-out for unanticipated rainstorms while the Pertex Microlight ECO lining cuts the wind should weather turn turbulent. So whether you're wandering the street-side cafes of Paris or navigating the high mountains of Park City, the Laminated Waxed Cotton Jacket caters to the technical terrain of mixed urban environments.

Awesome look

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

This jacket style is really cool and I'm excited about the performance. But it's snug up top - not great for layering over anything but a thin shirt. For reference, I purchased a size L and am typically a (busty and muscular) US12. Considering a size up. Covered placket with magnetic closure (!) is a great feature.
