We got tired of looking like we were dressed to summit K2 when we were just grabbing a burger after a day of tearing up Jackson Hole, so we designed the Linux Denim Synthetic Down Jacket to throw down plenty of warmth, water resistance, and around-town comfort in a smooth, casual package that looks and works better on the way to the Mangy Moose than it does traversing Himalayan glaciers or Alaskan ridgelines. With a shell made of cotton denim and a printed polyester taffeta lining, it rocks a low-key, bar-ready look that belies how well-designed it actually is.
The Linux is mellow enough that, if you were looking at it through beer goggles, you probably wouldn't even recognize that it's a quilted, insulated jacket and not just a puffy shirt. We've given it a 5K water-resistant and 8K breathable coating to keep the synthetic cotton rayon insulation dry and warm when the beer starts flying, and even built in mesh-lined pit zips to cool you down when you're showing everybody how to handle the mechanical bull (it's all in the thighs). When common sense takes over and tells you it's time to head home, stash your bull-riding winnings in the inside pocket for safekeeping and stumble gracefully back to your bed so you can rest up and get after it again tomorrow.
Discrete believes in the classic red flannel, it's sturdy, it's says, "hey man, I'm down to go shred, go grab a brewski, high five all night, take a couple buttons down if needed, but can tighten up the program too, I'm a mountain man w class." Long live the classic red flannel. We think we accomplished the red flannelperfectly. A slightly tailored fit, charcoal grey interior, collar and sleeve, accents. #rockdiscrete
When that chair-bumping cutie tells you to meet her under tower three at midnight, you're not gonna say no, even if it takes you two hours to walk there. The hike will go by in no time, though, when you're tramping up the hill in the Swift Puffy Down Jacket, practicing your best lines, hoping your mustache is properly twirled, and wondering if your pants are too tight (Or what if they're not tight enough?). It's a lot to worry about, but at least you'll be warm in the down-filled Swift, which combines a quilted nylon shell, printed polyester taffeta lining, and 8K waterproof and 10K breathable coating to keep you feeling like a boss on cold nights like this.
It's getting a little swampy as you hike, but the Swift's mesh-lined pit zips have you covered. Just pop them open for a shot of cool air, flip back the hood, and pick up the pace, because it's 10 minutes to midnight and you're only at tower one. Maybe you're a little nervous, too, but that's why you stashed some liquid courage in the internal pocket have a sip, and once you're feeling braver you can knock out the last few hundred yards, find a good spot to post up, and figure out which combination of waiting pose and opening line is going to make you look the coolest.
Whether you're tuning skis, kicking back in the hammock, or playing a game of Chinese Checkers, the 100% cotton Arch logo T-Shirt will give you a certain undefinable radness. It might not actually make you more interesting or better looking, but it'll make people think you're more interesting and better looking, which is really what life is all about.
