Constructed to deliver year round mountain weather protection, the new Air Jacket utilises new PERTEX® Shield AP fabric to achieve breathability, durability and waterproofness. With a hydrostatic head of 20,000mm and weighing just 350g, it is a lightweight, no-compromise shell that will protect you in Grampians or during heavy downpours in the Tasmania.
85g PERTEX® Shield AP fabric has a 100% nylon rip-stop face and uses an advanced air porous membrane for the highest levels of waterproof durability. Combined with a hydrostatic head of 20,000mm, the bi-component membrane pushes out moisture from the inside, providing all day comfort in a wide range of weather conditions. Micro-taped seams throughout increase breathable surface area. 12 - 13 seam stitch count on all seams versus a typical industry average of 8, creating a tight, clean and strong seam.
