Why We Like It

The Arc'teryx Fortrez jacket might be one of my favorite pieces of travel clothing. It is has the perfect balance of comfort, warmth, and breathability for anything from plane rides to multi-day treks. This mid-layer offers just about everything you could need for comfort while traveling: sleek design, super soft against the skin, regulates temperature well, and wicks moisture. There will be days where I put it on in the morning and don't take it off until I go to bed. The complete package when it comes to an everyday-wear mid-layer.
