"The lunatic is on the grass…" Well sure, but that's just California, and that vote legalizing pot would have passed if any of them had remembered to vote. Anyway, if you're heading to the dark side of the moon and need a little soft shell company, check out the Lunatic Hoody from Sierra Designs.
The Lunatic is a shapely little number that comes ready to climb from the top down, starting with a spacious helmet-compatible hood that provides excellent rotation for your brain bucket and a generous brim to keep the nasty off. The Barricade soft shell material sheds light precipitation effortlessly and provides just enough stretch to move with you.
One zippered chest and two zipped hand pockets are complemented by two interior stretchy tight-weave mesh pockets, a small right side zipped pocket and a larger open top inside lower left pocket, perfectly sized for a pair of bulky gloves, a hat or a 20oz water bottle. Dual sided pull cords snug the hood and hem, and rip and stick tabs big enough to be operated with gloves on take care of the cuffs. The Lunatic is a lot of jacket for the money, and the feel is top-notch, especially the interior which is velveteen soft. Men looking for a gift take note, it's a perfect ten on the get-out-of-the-doghouse scale.
