I’ve been told I need a soft shell jacket to take with me on the Grand Traverse
I have searched and searched and searched for the right one and was getting close to the point of giving up when up stepped Sprayway with their new Kalmar jacket and this is what they say about it….
Lightweight, packable weather resistant protection for the British summer.
New for Spring Summer 2019, the Sprayway Kalmar Hooded Jacket offers superb weather resistance for unpredictable summer days out.
The Kalmar has a technical look and feel, made from Stretch TecWEAVE™ with a TecSHELL™ fabric overlay for added durability. The 4-way stretch TecWEAVE in the main body and arms has a PFC free DWR coating for added weather resistance. This is topped off with a 30D TecSHELL ripstop fabric also coated with PFC free DWR through the chest and hood.
Sprayway has also insulated the hood with 20g INSOtherm and added a wired peak and the jacket has plenty of pockets where needed and fully adjustable cuffs and hem. The Kalmar is an extremely versatile jacket as it is lightweight and packable, wind and rain resistant, durable and can be worn as an outer or a mid-layer dependent on conditions.
It is the ‘Go To’ jacket for the unpredictable summer weather, perfect for nearly all outdoor activities and looks as good as it performs.
My initial joy on receiving the jacket is how light it is, perfect for the Grand Traverse! Every other jacket that has been described to me as “Soft Shell” may well be soft but everyone of them have been heavy and totally unsuitable for carrying for 38 days!!!
