Head Outdoors with Beyond K3 – Prima Lochi Jacket

Rugged weather protection in a jacket doesn’t have to lack style. And when traveling, while versatility is important, sometimes you wish you’d brought two jackets so you’re not wearing the exact same thing every day.

With the Beyond K3 – Prima Lochi Jacket, you have two serious outdoor jackets in one, because it’s reversible.

Made from 70-dernier micro ripstop nylon with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish, the jacket protects against moderate weather like gusts and showers. The jacket’s breathable insulation, 60g Polartec Alpha, wicks moisture away from your body so you can keep warm even when you’re active and sweating.

If you want a change, just flip the jacket inside out. Cool color combos mean you can essentially pack two jackets in one. Black reverses to woodland camo, gray reverses to rescue red, and rustic green reverses to Arctic camo. The jacket is also extremely easy to compress, whether you want to pack it, tuck it away, or use it as a travel pillow.

Pair the jacket with baselayers and softshells to dial up the warmth and protection, or flip up the roomy hood to keep your noggin nice and toasty. Keep your belongings safe with the jacket’s zippered pockets: a chest pocket and two hand pockets. When you need to wash it, the jacket dries fairly quickly, so you can venture outdoors again without waiting around too long.

The Beyond K3 – Prima Lochi Jacket comes in men’s sizes, most of which are also available in long versions. If you love the look but are looking for women’s sizing, just consult the detailed sizing guide to determine what will work for you. I chose to go a little big larger with mine, so I can layer underneath, as necessary. The jacket lists for $185 on the Beyond site.
