AiC: The Edit - November 2023
Cold and damp weather rolls in to welcome the penultimate month of the year, with highlights for November focusing on technical outerwear and weather-resistant layers from the likes of and wander, Norse Projects and ROA Hiking. Delivering convenient protection from transient showers, the and wander Pertex Printed Rain Jacket features a triple layer Pertex® Shield shell in a complimentary autumnal colourway, whilst Norse Projects’ workwear inspired Ulrik Gabardine Zipped Overshirt is a colour block option crafted from high-twist Italian fabric with a cut-and-sew aesthetic that’s ideal for layering.
Offering maximised comfort with cinchable cuffs and an elasticated waist, the Purple Mountain Observatory Blocked Hiking Pants are well-suited to autumn winter settings with ripstop blocking and zipped pockets. For intermittent sunnier spells, the ROA Technical Cap provides further protective coverage with an angled peak and a lightweight ripstop construction, whilst its close fit allows for convenient use alongside visored and helmet compatible jackets.
For footwear, the Protection Pack New Balance 1906 now available in all-black imitates the transitioning weatherfront with its rugged and deconstructed aesthetic, featuring ABZORB SBS, ACTEVA LITE and N-Lock technology for enhanced all-terrain wear.
In sheltered settings, midweight layers such as the ROA Grid Hoodie are designed to offer enhanced warmth thanks to its Pontetorto® Tecnostretch construction. A grid knit silhouette pairs with a stretch hood for a loose yet heat retaining fit, with elasticated thumbhole cuffs for further comfort. Similar to those from Purple Mountain Observatory, and wander’s Oversized Cargo Pants draw inspiration from mountaineering design with a wide leg cut, a detachable carabiner loop, an integrated webbing belt and with a stretch face for increased mobility.
A merger of traditional trail necessity and high end details, the hiking-hybrid ROA Lhakpa addresses all-weather functionality with water-repellent rough suede panels and a reinforced rubber toe. A Vibram® outsole and Megagrip Toothed tread combine for maximised grip and traction across the season’s variable terrains.
