If this year’s mild summer is any indication, some forecasters are already predicting a prolong and harsh winter by year’s end. So what better opportunity to stock up on winter gears than now? Certainly Penfield thinks the right time is now as the outerwear label launched its Fall/Winter 2009 Collection. Along with its classic Rockford Down Insulated Jacket and Kasson Parka, both harked back to the label’s New England heritage. Penfield also included the new Stapleton Down Insulated Jacket with Telfon coating exterior, and a slew of updated models, including the Outback Down Vest accentuated with Navajo Indian blanket design around the yoke. Of course, aside from its outerwear staples, there are plenty of flannel shirt, fleece, and accessories to select from. All are now available at Penfield’s official online store.
