Summer jacket

I bought this for summer hiking as I needed something light and water resistant, this fits the bill nicely and an added bonus of a fitted feminine shape! Not bulky or frumpy like most waterproof jackets on the market

Ideal para zonas húmedas o lluviosas gracias a su exterior 100% repelente al agua. Ligera permitiendo así libertad de movimientos. Interior forrado asegurando mantener el calor corporal. Enamorada de esta chaqueta.


Perfecto. Muy recomendable

Ideal para caminar los días de lluvia

No pesa, no cala la lluvia y abriga a pesar de lo ligera que es, lo que si mejoraría es la capucha ya que si hay temporal protege/abriga lo justo ya que no viene reforzada pero el resto, perfecta.

Il est fin et…

Il est fin et permet de monter à cheval sans gêne. Imperméabilité parfaite. Il faut juste mettre plusieurs couches en dessous quand il fait très froid ( en dessous de 5°). Ma fille qui passe des journées entières au écuries, le trouve génial!

Additional Product Information

  • 100% Polyester cationic

What is a softshell?

The softshell component is a high-tech fabric made of 3 materials: a breathable and windproof microporous coating sandwiched between the water-repellent outer layer and the warm and comfortable fleece inner layer. This technical material provides thermal comfort, breathability, lightness and ease of movement thanks to the warm stretch fabric that also provides protection against 30 minutes of fine rain.

What does water-repellent mean?

Not to be confused with waterproof! Its functionality is achieved by applying a hydrophobic treatment to the fabric. This process prevents the adhesion of water to the surface of the fabric. This limits its ability to absorb water. When movement is added to the equation, water glides over the fabric. This means the fabric is water-repellent. Thanks to the water-repellency, the water does not soak through the outer fabric. It remains light, does not retain moisture and dries faster.

What is breathability and the ret index?

The breathability of the fabric corresponds to its ability to let out the water vapor generated by the body (perspiration). It can be measured using the RET index (Resistance to Evaporative Transfer). The RET is a resistance index; the lower the value, the greater the breathability of the garment. RET between 6 and 12: very breathable; RET between 12 and 20: breathable; RET above 20: not breathable. Our products are very breathable, with a RET between 6.2 and 12.

How important is windproofing?

Protection from the wind is critical, as wind can chill the body significantly whether you are active or at rest. According to the windchill model, which measures how the air temperature feels when factoring in the wind and cold: at a temperature of 41°F combined with winds of 19 mph, the apparent temperature will be 32°F. If the air temperature is 32°F and wind speed is 20 mph, the temperature felt will be 21°F. The materials used in our products help to counter the windchill effect.

What is the hood like?

The hood of this product has been designed so as not to get in your way as you sail. The positioning of its seams is such that the hood follows the movements of your head. Its adjustment point at the top lets you adjust it to the right height. Its additional adjustment points at the collar let you modify the width to help stop the wind and cold from getting in. The hood has been tested to be worn with and without a waterproof jacket on top.

Water-repellency maintenance:

To renew the water-repellency of the fabric, thus optimizing the performance of your garment throughout its life, you can use a re-waterproofing spray or liquid water-repellent reactivator. The waterproofing of the Race softshell jacket lasts 5 washes. After that, we recommend reactivating the waterproofing treatment to ensure performance.
