Plaid-Jack Attack

We all love plaid flannel, a backwoods staple with associations ranging from grunge rocker to cowboy mystic. Now, lumberjack chic sees an upgrade via the SOLSTICE MYTHICAL LUMBERJACK FLANNEL ($79, solsticeoutdoor.com). Made from a state-of-the-art, quick-drying Thermo- Tech® polyester (its hollow fibers trap insulating air), the Mythical is exceptionally warm for only 12.8oz — plus, a Supplex® nylon component adds toughness and resistance to pilling, wind, and water. I wore the Mythical on a 10-block walk to the bus station one cold, rainy Denver night, staying warm and dry throughout.
