The Velez Jacket is an ideal piece for active outdoor enthusiasts.
If you enjoy mountain walking, cycling, climbing and backpacking, you need a jacket that will keep you dry in the rain and stop overheating whilst you are working hard.
The clever ventilation and functional design, combined with Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric, provides optimum comfort, excellent weather protection, warmth and cooling in one efficient jacket.
The Velez Jacket has excellent ventilation, a fully adjustable hood and practical pocketing.
- Temperature regulation is provided by two dual phase chest pockets and forward facing upper arm vents combined with a lightweight mesh lining.
- Field of vision and weather protection is assured by the fully adjustable, helmet compatible, wire peaked “halo” hood.
- Secure pocketing allows you to keep maps and valuables safe without impeding the use of packs or harnesses.
Nikwax Analogy Waterproof fabric is more than just breathable, it is directional.
This means it is capable of moving liquid water away from your body and not just water vapour.
It is essential to avoid a build-up of water in your clothing system when you are working hard, as too much retained moisture will lead to your body rapidly chilling when you stop and rest.
In conventional clothing systems, approximately 20% of sweat production is dealt with effectively, leaving the remaining 80% trapped inside.
Nikwax Analogy garments are unique, in that they pump out this 80% of liquid water and allow it to drain away; you are left feeling dry and comfortable.
