So long, sunshine. As the days grow shorter during fall and winter, pounding the pavement in low light and even total darkness is a fact of life for many dedicated runners. And one of the biggest challenges of running in the dark is making sure that others—especially drivers—can see you. That’s where high-visibility clothing comes in; it can actually increase the distance from which you can be seen by as much as 400 percent.

Nike’s latest hi-vis offering is the recently introduced Nike Vapor Flash Running Jacket. It was designed to provide 360-degree visibility in low light, with a reflective, laminated face that produces stunning 400-candlepower reflectivity. Once you see it in action, you understand why it’s being called ‘the brightest jacket on the road.’

Here’s how it works: Glass spheres in the fabric reflect light directly back along the same path as the oncoming beam (toward the car and driver) rather than scattering it, making it easier for a driver to recognize a runner. For times when you don’t need as much reflectivity, the hooded, reversible Nike Vapor Flash also features a toned-down matte side. And perforations plus zip vents keep air flowing to help you stay dry and comfortable. A bright idea, indeed.

CONCRETE‘s friends at Penfield have just delivered their last drop of this year, a few familiar styles and a few new. Check out below for more info on which styles and colors. But don’t hesitate because there is a good chance that if you miss these, you’re heading towards a very cold winter.

A heavyweight expedition parka with a generous 360 grams of 550 fill power 80/20 down, the Hoosac excels in extreme conditions. Made up in our hardwearing 60/40 cotton nylon and available in a 70’s inspired Cobalt Blue color, the parka is both water-resistant and windproof.

The detachable and fully adjustable coyote fur hood, combined with an internal waist cinch, allows you to customize the fit and feel of your parka providing maximum comfort and performance in wind, rain and snow. A zip and button up front with fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets ensure that you stay cozy and dry when the temperature drops.

High quality details such as leather cord pullers and the classic Penfield leather arm patch make this well-known style unique and stylish.

A shorter jacket perfect for when style and warmth are essential, the Rockwool’s design features understated yet functional details. Its easy-to-wear profile makes the Rockwool a great option for cold days on the trail or frosty evenings in the city.

Designed for cold weather environments, the tough 60/40 cotton nylon outer fabric is insulated with our premium 80/20 down. The jacket has a genuine shearling collar which keeps the warmth in and the wind out.

A leather shoulder yoke and leather trim around the cuffs provides added durability, while snaps on the front of the jacket keep it securely fastened. Two simple patch pockets offer storage space and a safe haven for cold hands.

One of our most celebrated styles the Rockford and the Stapleton jacket are constructed with an 80/20 down fill providing additional warmth for the winter season.

This winter’s Stapleton has been updated with a zip on the center front that, combined with tough metal snaps, provides improved shelter from the elements. Lower hand-warmer pockets are angled for better hand placement with arrowheads reinforcing the corners.

The leather shoulder yoke gives the jacket added strength and durability, a distinctive Penfield feature on a rugged style.

An instantly recognizable Penfield style, the Rockford is a lightweight and versatile alternative to the expedition parka, this style has been updated this season with a soft corduroy collar to provide added comfort.

Two snap closure chest pockets keep essential items safe, while the fleece-lined bottom pockets are perfectly positioned to keep your hands warm. The tough nylon outer fabric and authentic plaid shoulder yoke ensure that this piece stays true to its roots in the great outdoors.

Remodeled to compliment the women’s silhouette, the Rockford and the Stapleton are true Penfield originals.

All of the above models are available at CONCRETE as of now.

So Mishka did a collaboration with Famous Stars & Straps, I’m sure you all know who Famous is… you know the clothing company founded by Travis Barker, the guy with neck tattoos who played drums in Blink 182 (Greg’s favorite band of all time!). Мишка on the other hand was founded by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones member who just danced, the guy who got credited on the CDs as being “the Bosstone.”

The pièce de résistance is this jacket they made. It’s Mishka’s take on a tradition satin tour jacket featuring Simon on the front and a big honkin’ tigahhhhh on the back. A badass Cyco Simon tiger to boot! Look at that beast, nothing can stop him. The russian text in the back says Famous and Мишка in cursive and is constructed of chenille. This is seriously one top notch killer jacket.

Available NOW in small numbers at Concrete.
