Cozy Color-Blocked Coats

The Kinetics/Columbia Orlion Jacket Keeps You Visible On the Slopes

— October 8, 2012 — Fashion
Be seen from miles away while you're kicking up snow on the hills while wearing the Kinetics/Columbia Orlion Jacket. The coat worked off the basic navy blue design of the Orlion jacket and pasted on rectangles of bright neon colors to really make the outerwear pop.

The Kinectics/Columbia Orlion Jacket uses Omni-Shield technology to make it weatherproof and insulated to protect snowboarders from intense winds while they are cruising down a course. It also contains a faux-fur interior lining for added warmth.

This jacket is part of a limited-edition line of clothing that two brands have produced for the Fall/Winter 2012 collection. If you find that this is something that will improve your winter wardrobe, then don't hesitate to pick one up.
