American Giant recently took its famous cotton hoodie and added a DWR finish, turning a normal gym piece into a bomber outerlayer called the Storm Full Zip.
The Storm maintains American Giant’s signature trim fit and uses 12.4-ounce cotton fleece for a heavy-duty hand-feel. In addition to the DWR coating (which should last about 30 washes), it features reinforced elbows, a headphone port inside the left pocket, an internal storm flap behind the zipper, and a soft-brimmed hood with cinch cords under the chin.
In the Marines, they say “If it ain’t rainin’, we ain’t trainin’.” The American Giant Storm takes that literally: we won’t be surprised to see more of these popping up on the streets as the weather deteriorates.
