There’s a special place where functional performance clothing meets style; most items of clothing are one or the other, and when you find the right piece that strikes a balance between all three, they really stand out. Take Edgevale for example. All Edgevale products are made right at home in Oakland, California, and are meant to combine the best of an active, outdoor lifestyle with stylish fashion. The Edgevale Merritt Jacket is a good example of this.
Made from ultralight, high-performing Polartec Power Stretch Pro fabric, which is 53% polyester, 38% nylon, and a stretchy 9% spandex. That’s the perfect blend of warmth, comfort and athletic mobility, all rolled into one. The outside is coated with a low-friction finish, which gives it a bit of abrasion-resistance as well as a cool, sleeker look.
The design itself is stylishly classic, with a modern fit and those cool contrast arm panels. There are roomy quick draw side pockets, YKK snaps, and an embroidered Edgevale logo. The fit is slim straight, with enough room to layer and move comfortably while staying close to the body.
For a stylish jacket that looks great on you while grabbing lunch, but immediately lets you go out and start a hike immediately after, what else could you ask for?
