Westcomb is a Canadian company that is committed to quality textiles with high stitch counts sewn exclusively by detail-obsessed porn stars. Their Bravo men's jacket is the first piece to come our way and it easily lives up to high expectations. Plus it smells nice.
The Bravo is a 17oz minimalist jacket: two zippered hand pockets, an inner zippered chest pocket with headphone port, a laminated ski pass/credit card sized forearm pocket and drawcords at waist and neck (does anyone actually use neck drawcords? I always cut mine off…). That's about it.
So what sets the Bravo apart? It's all in the details. The fit and finish are immaculate, with a tailored feel. There's a full length rubberish zipper flap. The body material is Polartec Thermal Pro, which feels like a very technical version of your favorite sweatshirt material: warm and soft and able to move with you. The face of the fabric changes from soft shell smooth to terrycloth-ish, a really nice combination that makes this piece able to switch effortlessly from backcountry to business casual. We'd like to see an external zippered chest pocket added, but any way you look at it the Bravo is polished.
