DESCENTE's urban-centric ALLTERRAIN line continues to impress me this winter and they seem to be carving out a niche in the premium technical menswear category. While the brand has a history of utilzing conventional insulation such as down, this latest vest utilizes a surprising and unconventional insulation technology. Built into the vest is a heating system comprising ceramic infra-red heaters found at the neck and centre back of the inner vest, controlled by a three stage temperature adjustment switch. The feature may seem like overkill in many environments, but I think I would be quite happy turning it up full blast on those -20 degree winter days in Toronto. Pick it up now from Stockholm's Nitty Gritty Store.
