Choosing a waterproof jacket for adventures in spring and summer can be a tricky balancing act. It’d be overkill to carry a fully-featured, winter ready jacket – it’ll just be way too heavy and clammy. But, at the same time, you don’t want an excessively flimsy and lightweight jacket either – one unexpected downpour and you’ll end up wetter than an otter’s pocket. Somewhere in the middle is the perfect halfway house: a jacket that’s lightweight-ish, packable and breathable, but waterproof enough to cope with Prince Rupert's unpredictable weather.
The jacket is made from a 100% recycled polyamide face fabric, with a 2.5-layer construction, and a durable water resistant (DWR) coating that is 100% PFC-free, ensuring polluting fluorocarbons aren’t released into the planet.
