Originally made up of 60 percent cotton and 40 percent nylon, the '60s-era Sierra Designs 60/40 jacket is an American legend ( just ask your dad, he probably owns one). With the chilly weather approaching, we’ve picked today's 60/40-inspired jackets (and a pair of pants) that will get you to the hike, firepit, or apple pick and back all season long.
