Summit Ice Softshell Jacket Review + Photos

If you’ve never heard of Summit Ice, then you need to go watch Nathan For You (funniest show on TV). For everyone else who might want to buy one of these jackets, here are some extra photos and thoughts (above is a fake ad I made for it).

The jacket is actually shipped by King’s Road Merch. I had no problems with my order, but there are some complaints online, so YMMV. The jackets are a bit expensive, but all the profits really do go to charity (assuming that’s not a lie). ┬áIf you just want a new jacket, I’m sure there are better ones out there for cheaper, but this one isn’t bad. It’s fairly light (you can actually see light shining through it if you hold it up), but it is decently warm. I don’t think you’ll actually be climbing mountains with this, though. It’s perfect for Fall weather. I’ll see how it holds up once it starts snowing, but I may have to switch.

The logo is embroidered on the jacket–I was worried it would just be printed on or something, but it’s not. It looks great. You can see a close-up photo of it below.

Here’s a sizing chart for the jacket, sent to me by King’s Road Merch (click for large version):



Fun with Heteronyms

Heteronyms are words with the same spelling, but different pronunciation/meaning. My friend and I were trying to come up with sentences that can be interpreted two different ways; here are a few of mine (italics on the heteronyms):

The President’s handwriting was sloppy on the treaty, so he resigned.

Hand me that sakazuki, for Christ’s sake!

The tailoring on my new shirt was terrible, so I stuffed it in the sewer.

How is a Corvus like an escritoire?

My relatives were visiting this week, so I took the train out to the suburbs to see them. The next day they drove me back to Chicago, and during the car ride my aunt and uncle were discussing the difference between gregarious and loquacious.

I wish I could hang out with them all the time.
