IHJ-80-BEI - Cotton Mix Mountain Parka - Beige

IHJ-80-BEI - Cotton Mix Mountain Parka - Beige

Low-tech meets high-tech.  Seemingly a classic mountain parka constructed from 65/35 cotton/polyester with a traditional cotton tartan lining. What we've concealed is a hi-tech breathable/waterproof/windproof film bonded between the inner and outer layers. Looks old-school, but is new-school cool.

USD650

Launching 24th October 2019 at 1600BST

This jacket really snuck up on me.  I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do.  I'm curious to learn more about the water-repellent properties.  Just how waterproof is this jacket?

I'm also curious about the velcro closures for the pockets.  Is there a functional reason for this?  Or is this purely an aesthetic choice?

Regardless, this is a really nice piece of kit.  I think both colors work equally well, too.

It has a flexible, breathable, waterproof lining bonded between the inner and outer layers.  Like all waterproof/breathable fabrics, it will not ever be as waterproof as an impenetrable layer (but obviously with an impenetrable layer, you will get condensation on the inner surfaces).  Goretex and the like are amazing, but eventually, do let water through, though of course, the up-side is that they do allow moisture to move from the inner to the outer surface. IMO, you cant have the best of both worlds, the technology simply does not exist yet.

H loves a bit of Velcro.  You could remove with minimal scarring of the shell fabric.

Hey @seanocono,

Just to follow up - we use Moifit® for the Cotton Mix Mountain Parka, which is an elasticated technical cloth that is breathable and waterproof. It is often bonded to the reverse of a garment's fabric. And because of its superior flexibility, it will not alter maneuverability.

Hope this helps as little.

Thank you, Giles and Joe.  I'm looking forward to testing this jacket out.  I think it strikes a tasteful balance between a classic aesthetic, and modern waterproofing tech.  I really appreciate the additional insight.  Cheers.
