Anyone who’s ever spent a day at the Hudson Canyon in the North Atlantic on a scallop dragger, setting otter boards and tending the net will tell you: be ready to handle all four seasons of weather in just one day.
The crews that call Viking Village home and steam out of Barnegat Inlet at the northern tip of Long Beach Island, NJ…well, they know a thing or two about a thing or two. Particularly, how to dress for these wild ass occasions. It’s October and peak of the scallop season and out here you dress in layers or suffer the consequences. And the one piece that’s forever part of this ensemble and common to every deckhand’s gear bag, is a sturdy, durable, 100% cotton sweatshirt.
Our Hudson Canyon Quarter-Zip Sweatshirt was built for days like this. Its weather-beaten look and feel are intentional and achieved by our proprietary sea-salt-wash treatment. Yes, real sea salt, Henlopen Sea Salt to be precise. The base fabric is a sturdy 20oz cotton, tightly knit for longevity and warmth. It’s prewashed, it won’t shrink, it’ll retain its shape yet has plenty of give. And, ok, I’ll say it…it’s soft, but only on the inside!
And please note, this is not your skinny-mini-hipster-tailored fashion sweatshirt meant for looking hip on your way to SBUX. Our Hudson Canyon Quarter-Zip is cut Old School, full and broad through the sleeves and torso, perfect for layering over other shirts, and just right for under layering to a coat or your overalls. Ribbed cuffs and waistband bring it all together, around your wrist and hips to keep the whatever out and you right and tight.
