Double Bay man buys North Face puffer jacket to help him brave cooler climates at the movies

ADVENTURE MAN: A local man who normally watches movies at home is tonight stepping out of his comfort zone.

Before bravely stepping into the heavily air conditioned Event Cinemas at Bondi Junction, Ben Watkins visited the North Face store within Westfield to buy a $400 puffer jacket.

“I heard the North Face jackets are excellent at keeping the cold out,” he told DBT. “I’m going to need it because this movie I’m seeing goes for almost two hours.”

And, like virtually every other eastern suburbs resident who never leaves the city, the 34 year old has combined his new jacket with a pair of R.M Williams.

“I’m pretty much ready for anything in this gear,” he says. “I think I could even handle the air conditioning downstairs at Coles. Frozen food section, here I come. “
