Product Review: Noble Outfitters Elements Cowl

At first glance, the Elements Cowl looks super cozy. It features a plush french terry fabric, which feels super smooth and slightly stretchy. Photo by Lorraine Peachey.

Staying warm when I’m active and spending time outdoors requires more than just pulling on a coat. Planning outfits starts with the oh-so-important base and mid layers. Because whether I’m taking care of barn chores or going for a long hack, I want to be comfortable.

That amount of versatility is why I’m really excited to be wearing the brand new Element Cowl. This season, the Elements Cowl is brand new from Noble Outfitters.

The Elements Cowl looks and feels super cozy. It features a plush French terry fabric that is super smooth and slightly stretchy. The cowl neck itself is designed to bunch up around the neck for a stylish look with an insulating effect.

The bold colors of the Elements Cowl look simply fabulous. All three colors of Deep Sea Coral, Purple, and Twilight Blue, are available in a Heather look. Which means that the hues have a lovely brushed appearance that makes them anything but dull.

I’m also smitten with all of the fashion forward details that give the Elements Cowl an oh so stylish look. The elastic cuffs create a fashionable bunched looked, and they are include thumbholes to keep sleeves in place. Photo by Lorraine Peachey.

I also like that the side seams are rolled forward, in order to create a flattering fit. And since fit is so important to me, I do enjoy the combination of the semi fitted silhouette, the fitted raglan sleeves, and the dropped back hem for additional coverage.

But the Elements Cowl offers more than a stylish exterior … it is designed for the performance-minded as well. One of my favorite technologies found in Noble Outfitters apparel (including the Elements Cow) is the Opti Dry Technology that helps to wick away moisture.

I’ve been quite obsessed with the Elements Cowl lately, because this is a piece that is extremely versatile. The very day that mine arrived, I pulled it on to wear out for a casual dinner with my boyfriend – I was snuggly warm and looked terrific!

And yet over the weekend, I pulled it on over a base layer to go out riding. I went for a long hack out in fox hunting country, and was able to enjoy the brilliant fall foliage. The best part? I stayed warm enough without getting sweaty (thank you Opti Dry!).

Can you even stand for any more versatility? Well, I can! The following week, I even worn my Elements Cowl into the office. It gives a crisp and stylish casual appearance, which allows me to stay warm, comfortable and still professional at the same time.

If the style, versatility and performance features of the Elements Cowl aren’t enough, I’ve got two final words to say. Machine. Washable. Which means I’m happy, because the Cowl is low maintenance like I am, so I can toss it in the wash and it will still look grand.

The Elements Cowl is available from Noble Outfitters in three fabulous heather colors, including Deep Sea Coral, Purple, and my personal favorite, Twilight Blue. It is available in size XS through 2XL, and retails for $54.95. You can find it here.
