Our Merino Softshell Jacket offers runners protection and comfort in changeable circumstances. With waterproof and windproof panels forming its leading surfaces, the reverse is composed of breathable and insulating Merino wool. Allowing for unimpeded athletic performance across a huge range of conditions, it’s a single jacket that can master a year’s worth of weather.
The Merino Softshell Jacket aims to maintain an optimum environment around its wearer regardless of the prevailing weather. Employing all ashmei’s expertise in tailoring and material technology, it matches highly-rated wind and waterproof panels with natural Merino insulation to create superlative comfort.
The result is a jacket ready to face down a huge range of conditions while still allowing for a full range of motion. Covering the top, shoulders, and front of the jacket, waterproof and windproof fabrics insure against buffeting gusts and unexpected showers. With the jacket’s trailing panels less susceptible to these elements, their prime focus is on providing insulation and breathability.
In this role, Merino wool is a naturally perfect fit. ashmei’s thermo Merino material is extremely stretchy, yet still provides excellent thermo-regulating properties. With a soft brushed interior, it’s both comfortable and able to rapidly convert large quantities of liquid into vapour. Combined with an ability to contain odour-creating bacteria, this helps keep both jacket and wearer fresh.
The ability of each fabric to regulate temperature is further improved by ventilation zippers that can be quickly opened to increase airflow. Expanding the range of the jacket, this allows runners to rapidly jettison unwanted heat should their effort level or the conditions demand.
Despite under-stated styling, the Merino Softshell Jacket is deceptively rich in features. From an easily accessible pocket perfect for stashing a gel, to the concealed and secure interior pocket for containing your valuables, all essentials are kept safe and ready to hand. Picking out the cut of the jacket while also highlighting its wearer, extensive reflective detailing also improves safety in low-light conditions.
