This wind jacket bearly takes any space in your kit bag yet gives fantastic protection from the elements especially the wind. Classified as being shower proof this jacket will help as a shield from light rain but not heavy....
The following are required to build this product:
Not only does TRAMPA's Wind & Shower proof Jacket look really smart but it packs down into almost no space at all, making it the garment you should never leave home without! Specially if you are venturing off to some outside activities on a changeable day, as the Jacket actually does as it name suggests by protecting you from the wind & rain when its blowing a howler!! I wear mine over the top of my TRAMPA Fleece, the cuffs are elasticated & so they stay perfectly in position over the to of my gloves keeping me warm & making me feel mobile but equally protected from harsh wind & potential showers that blow in with the wind, so i stay dry & toasty all day long! I wouldn't go as far to say the jacket is totally rainproof so when it completely chucks it down i do head in BUT it is the perfect top layer to wear when the weather is changeable & you need some basic protection from the elements whilst of course still looking good!! :-)
To avoid leaks this jacket has been printed rather than embroidered, which is quite a difficult to do when the jacket is already made. The heater used for making the print can easily melt the garment! So special low temperature vinyl has been sourced for this process... In total their are 4 prints on the garment, one small TRAMPA logo on the front, a Large TRAMPA logo with web domain on the rear between the shoulders & 2 TRAMPABOARDS logos running down the inside of both sleeves...
TRAMPA's Wind & Shower proof Jacket has a Built in Hood which neatly folds away into the collar. The hood has a small peak & a drawstring to pull tight. It will keep the rain off your hoodie underneath no problem. When the hood is packed away into the collar, the extra thickness of the material helps to keep the back of your neck lush & warm... somehow your neck is always exposed when doing outside activities & its good practice to keep this part of your body warm to avoid aches later. The hem of the jacket has a Drawstring sewn into it, so you can adjust it by pulling tight & keep the warm air inside. The jacket has a Zipper at the front & 2 exterior pockets, both pockets have large opening 7 inch zippers & all 3 of the zippers on the jackets are PIMPED out with the TRAMPA Zipper pulleys which not only help you to keep your possessions safe when you might be riding upside down on the beech but the zippers can be easily located & pulled & being 7 inches opening also allow a man sized hand wearing an activity style glove to be able to slip in and out of the pocket with no fiddle or hassle at all... So the large opening pockets & TRAMPA zippers saves you from having to take your gloves off to reach for a tissue or add more money into the parking meter!
