When it comes to tackling the elements, a Northerner knows a thing or two about it. We are constantly surrounded by shifting weather, and with that in mind, it’s appreciated when our gear can handle the pressure. Heading in our direction is the latest Counter Climate collection by Converse (which was introduced in 2016). The head-to-toe selection provides all-terrain gear for adventurous people, coating a lot of their iconic pieces in GORE-TEX or offer reversible looks, so when rain pops by, you are ready to repel the seasons and go inside-out. Our team in London gave the collection a serious test downtown for the latest drop, keeping it safe but going all in for the rundown.
