The ultra street-style Horsefeathers Cook jacket hides enough on-hill technical performance beneath its stylish exterior to make it the perfect choice for park lappers. And at €129.95 its pretty stellar value to take you from the mountains to the mean streets.
It’s a team favourite for days spent party waving inbounds thanks to its on fleek coaches jacket style, but luckily even if conditions turn to the grim side (or you eat snow more often than these boys) the Cook will still have your back thanks to DWR-treated 5k waterproofness and breathability with critically taped seams.
Of course, a jacket in this style has to have the popper closure, but thankfully Horsefeathers have also added a full YKK zip to sit beneath for better mountain functionality, along with a couple of pockets to stash your swag in, including a pass pocket on the cuff.
And, perhaps most importantly, when you roll off the hill and into the bar the Cook jacket looks right at home. Måns Hedberg is certainly down: “Make your style from street to boarding. With the Cook, everything getting so easy. Just want to have a simple life? Chose the Cook and keep it real. Stay true everybody.”
In fact, the team are so down with this that when they rolled up for a shoot in Ruka, there was that awkward moment when you realised maybe you should have called to see what the other guys were wearing first. But screw it. We’re betting you’re down to join the GangBang gang now too.
