Reversible was the hashtag voor more than a few pieces of outerwear I saw at Interbike. Multi-function clothing is bueno simply because you can get more out of what you’ve purchased. One of, if not the most intriguing pieces I was shown was Chrome’s WARM™ Work Shirt ($180USD)

Chrome sez: “We built the Chrome WARM™ Work Shirt to be highly versatile. Fully insulated, it works as a layering piece and as outerwear. Our Chrome WARM™ Work Shirt rocks technical features like reflectivity, water-resistant fabric, reversibility, ventilation, and more without looking technical.”

I’ve already put a decent amount of time in the Work Shirt. And while I’m not ready to review it just yet, I have a few points of interest:

• The fit is extremely slim. If you’re uncomfortable with the slim, I suggest upsizing.
• While it’s certainly WARM™, the snap closure allows for some venting—both an unwanted/wanted feature depending on the weather.
• The flip-side orange isn’t hi-viz, but it is highly visible. Also, it looks pretty damn good even if you’re not a huge safety-viz fan.
