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):

Vegans are almost always portrayed badly on tv, since there’s apparently no reason to include them unless the episode is about them wanting meat, unfortunately. So here’s a partial transcript of the episode, with a few of my comments.

For anyone not familiar with this show, it is NOT a reality cooking show, it’s a fictional comedy.
