The winter jacket for every weather condition, this is a versatile piece of Equipment conceived for the Globetrotter. Rather than being race oriented, it offers unrestrained functionality.
The idea for the jacket comes from lessons learned during winter sport activities in the Dolomites and is inspired by the needs when practicing different sports including skiing, ski touring and mountaineering. Reinterpreted into a cycling formula, this is not the traditional soft shell jacket commonly used in winter, rather a tool that integrates the protection of a body mapping shell and insulation properties into a single design – combining waterproof protection and thermal insulation through a ‘sandwich’ construction.
The extraordinary result is a deep-winter jacket with the futuristic weight of only 280g (size S)! That’s 30% lighter than the Termica Jacket yet it can be used in the same range of temperatures.
The pattern construction meets the demands of a woman’s body, introducing an extra drawstring at the bottom of the jacket for sealed protection and a snug fit.
- The outer shell has a body mapping construction that combines a proprietary three layer waterproof fabric, the UF 75Shell (75g/m2 and 15 denier) with a durable water repellent treatment.
- The inner layer is made with a new version of the UF Air Insulation, the knitted jacquard brushed fabric is now a blend of micropolyester that increases the thermal insulation. It creates an layer of warm air next to the skin, allowing for a high absorption/emission rate of moisture before it has time to change into sweat caused by condensation.
