This looks awesome. I have a weakness for black fleece, and pockets. And anything that’s black fleece with a ton of pockets? Like crack cocaine. And this jacket from Gitzo is pricier than crack cocaine. The $400 price-tag invites the temptation to make jokes about getting fleeced. Sorry, I resisted the temptation but I am a weak, weak man.
Still, all things being equal, I would love one of these jackets. I wear a black fleece on almost every trip, even if I take it off on arrival. Gate agents getting picky about carry-on? No problem – empty your stuff into the pockets and you’re on your way. Want to go walk-about for a day and not take a bag of gear? This’ll do it. Unless you’re in Delhi in June, then you’re pretty much screwed – cause, baby, it’s hot outside.
