Plastic is everywhere. It's in packaging, action figures, drink bottles, and once we're done with them, they go to lay in a landfill for close to eternity. Concerned by the environmental hazard and the mass consumerism behind, Rhode Island artist Thomas Deininger turned his anxieties into inspiration and began using the waste material as a medium for his three-dimensional sculptures.

Inspired by the iridescent wings of the Blue Morpho butterfly, this new jacket from Vollebak has over two billion microscopic blue glass spheres embedded in resin on the jacket's surface. The glass spheres create an entirely reflective jacket that is constantly changing color while you ski or snowboard. The Blue Morpho is engineered for a max range of motion with plenty of room for a hoodie underneath. The jacket also is fully seam-sealed, waterproof, and includes an ocean-racing style marine hood and high collar. The visibly stunning piece of outerwear acts like a mirror for whatever light conditions you're in, with a liquid metal appearance under the sun that shifts to a bionic blue at night with any camera flash, torch, or searchlight.

Clinton C. Filson got his start outfitting prospectors on their way to the Klondike Gold Rush at the end of the 19th century. The C.C.F. line of workwear from Filson bears his initials and carries on the Filson tradition of high-quality clothing that's versatile and tough. Made with a durable nylon shell with quilted polyester insulation, the C.C.F. Quilted Utility Jacket is compact and lightweight, making it an ideal outer layer as the weather begins to turn in the Fall, and in early Spring when there's still a chill in the air. In the colder months of Winter, it's perfect to place underneath a heavier coat as an insulating layer, making it a true three-season workhorse. Each jacket is finished with action-back shoulder pleats, insulated hand-warmer pockets, a metal zipper, and is priced right to be your go-to, throw-it-on layer this Fall.
Sizing: Comfortably True to Size / Size Down If In Serious Doubt.
