My husband has been asking for a winter jacket this year, and I knew Obermeyer was the brand to turn to. With their philosophy of enjoying the outdoors without getting cold and wet, their outerwear is perfect for Minnesota winters. I've partnered with Obermeyer to share why I believe they have the best winter jackets for men!
If you've followed the blog for awhile you probably realize the guy above is not my husband! Since I want to gift the jacket to my husband for Christmas, I asked my brother to step in for photos. It's not often that I get to surprise Tyler with a gift, mostly because he never really wants anything! So this year I can't wait for him to open his new Rex Down Hybrid Jacket from Obermeyer.
Obermeyer Rex Down Hybrid Jacket
As you can surmise from the name, this jacket is filled with down and is incredibly warm. This down hybrid jacket is toasty, waterproof, breathable, and durable. Recently we talked about getting into skiing with our kids, and Obermeyer outerwear is built exactly for that. In the meantime, it will serve well as a winter jacket since our temperatures are about to dip again this upcoming week. We've been lucky with temps in the 30s lately but it always goes downhill after Christmas!
The Rex Hybrid is built for both warmth and activity, with so many features! The hood is adjustable and removable, and both the collar and chin warmer are lined with fleece. It features thumbhole inner cuffs (a big favorite) and a Snap-Away™ water-resistant powderskirt to keep the snow out. Plus, the inner pocket has a detachable, scratch-free goggle cloth!
This jacket is filled with pockets for any accessories you may need to carry on the slopes or just out for a day in the snow. All of the outer pockets have zippers to keep important items like phones and keys safe. You'll find both interior and exterior pockets on this jacket for convenience. My husband likes to keep his phone accessible (mostly for the pictures I ask him to take of the kids!) so he'll likely carry it in the upper chest pocket.
Pockets, Pockets, Pockets!
You can find everything you'd expect in a warm winter jacket in the Rex Down Hybrid, but I love that Obermeyer not only meets but exceeds the standards in this department. They independently third party test all of their technical fabrics for performance verification. Obermeyer uses fully coated hydrophobic laminations and a superior DWR polymer coating for stain protection and coating integrity. That means this jacket will hold up to all the snowballs our kids can throw at Tyler, as well as all the snow angels he makes with them!
Best Christmas Gift Ever
I can't wait for Tyler to open his jacket on Christmas Day, and I'm sure he'll be using it right out of the box! We've got plenty of snow up here, and we're going to have it for months to come. Our family has a bucket list this year and many of the activities are outdoors. Tyler will be so happy to have a new winter jacket for things like ice skating, sledding, and snow tubing. You can purchase this and other great winter jackets for men from Obermeyer's website. If you're in the market for women's or children's winter gear, be sure to check out my recent post on mother daughter gear, too! Or, if you live in a milder climate, I've got an Obermeyer Insulator you'll want to see.
