A three-season garment that you can layer during fall, winter, and spring, the Western Rise Caribou Quilted Shirt should prove to be a versatile addition to any wardrobe. And while that’s impressive enough, this work shirt happens to be all manners of good-looking, too, making for the kind of piece you wouldn’t mind wearing on its own both indoors and out.
Heavy snow? Layer it underneath a thick, warm down on the way to work. Rainy afternoon? It’s water-resistant, so you can use it over other layers without getting bogged down by light showers (for heavy downpours, though, a better top layer will be necessary). Mild post-winter mornings? Wear it over a shirt to go hiking and you should be fine for the rest of the day.
Each Western Rise Caribou Quilted Shirt is made using quilted polyester that’s produced from a dozen recycled plastic bottles, with recycled coffee grounds used as eco-insulation (apart from capably blocking out odor, of course). That combination gives the shirt jacket hybrid the ability to absorb way less odor and stains, so you can wash it less frequently compared to similar pieces in your closet. The outer shell gets a DryRise treatment for water resistance, with breathable construction ensuring it remains wearable when the cold weather eases up. Features include UPF 50 sun protection, articulated sleeves (75 degrees) for better mobility, two chest pockets (one zippered and one buttoned lid), a hidden interior pocket, antique brass snaps, and YKK zippers.
Available now, the Western Rise Caribou Quilted Shirt is priced at $139.
