Things happen on the trail, especially in New England. A sudden rain storm, whipping winds, and perilously dropping temperatures are all-too-common occurrences. We set out to build a versatile jacket that could handle surprise weather changes, without weighing you down. Featuring a nylon and wool blend fabric that’s water and dirt repellent with incredible wicking on the inside thanks to the wool loop backface.
Back It Up
The secret behind this jacket’s performance on the trails lies in the material. We selected a stretch woven by Schoeller with a looped, wool back. The exterior repels water and dirt, thanks to their innovative 3xDry finish. The interior maximizes wool’s natural performance capabilities. It’s wicking, thermoregulating and antimicrobial, helping prevent post-run stink. Plus we added side panels in our Inverno Blend nylon for added breathability and freedom of movement.
If there’s a company that understands mountain wear, it’s Schoeller Textil AG. They’ve called Switzerland home since they were founded in the 19th century. To craft a jacket that was weather-resistant and durable enough for the trail, we worked with their team to find a quick-drying, water-repellent stretch woven with a soft wool backing. It performs like a jacket while feeling like a comfortable mid-layer.
The jacket features two zippered pockets for holding a phone, fuel or car keys.
Head Off Roads
From symphonic sunsets and mid-run moments of zen, to soul-crushing scrambles and descents so steep you whisper prayers between hyperventilations, the trail experience embodies the full spectrum of athletic enjoyment. Who needs a theme park when you've got legs, lungs and singletrack? The Off Roads Collection is designed for exploration, featuring pieces inspired by and crafted for the challenges of running outside the lines.
