continuous filament insulation on the inside. New Gore-Tex Infinium® shell fabric on the outside. Press buttons and an 8 MM 2-way metal zip protect the center line. An additional 5 MM zip ingeniously converts the collar to protect your neck. Despite being able to pack down into the convertible collar, the new stowable Storm Hood is one of our finest ever. Two front facing flap pockets nod to tradition; while 2 canted WR zipped back pockets have an eye on the approaching horizon. All held together by impeccable Acronym tailoring, and an internally or externally deployable JacketSlingæ.
Gore-Tex Infinium® is a completely new type of GORE-TEX® laminate. It shifts focus from toughness to softness, from resistance to well being. A new proprietary technology forms a component fabric with persistent beading and extremely low water pick up. This means no bulky face fabric is needed. The result is comfort and quiet unlike anything before it.
The laminated face of the fabric will 'break-in' and develop its own individual shine and patina with time. Durability and appearance will vary with type and style of use. Additionally, we advise the user to adhere to the following care instructions to ensure fabric integrity and longevity:
_Z-strength warning: Under no circumstances should adhesives (stickers, glue, tape, etc.) of any type be applied to the surface of this fabric. Removal of such adhesives may cause the laminate to split along the z-axis causing partial delamination and discoloration of the fabric.
_Never attach pins, needles or staples to the fabric.
_Zip up the garment before washing. Place garment in a wash bag and machine wash cold with liquid detergent. Rinse twice. Do not use powder detergent, fabric softener or bleach. No Ironing.
