The Smartwool Double Propulsion 60 Jacket impressed me from the start. The look of part jacket / part sweater felt like I was wearing something innovative, new and stylish all at the same time. My impression grew as I wore the technical Smartwool Jacket day in and day out. However, what struck me from the start was the comfort and style.
Remarkably light, I was surprised how I never had the issue of feeling too warm. To give the temperature gauge a test run I put the Merino wool and SmartLoft wool insulation through my everyday paces. From work meetings, to post workout attire and every step in between, the Smartwool Double Propulsion 60 Jacket joined me on all my adventures from warm day hikes, cold treks, ski days, hockey practice, events and parties to even just strolls in the Vancouver rain.
It’s been hard to find a good zip up technical jacket that I could wear all day without feeling bulky, too warm or uncomfortable. The Merino wool back panels ensures breathability without overheating which for me is always key, while the SmartLoft wool insulation front offers thermoregulation and core warmth even when the temperature dips.
I often overheat, however the sleek form fitting look of the Smartwool Double Propulsion 60 Jacket provided me with an attractive everyday fit that keeps me insulated and fashion forward from the streets to the slopes.
