Polartec Windbloc Laminate Hybrid Nylon exterior Softshell Sage Green Exterior / Dark Olive (appears brown) Interior
The Shavano is a "Made-in-Colorado USA", hybrid, softshell/hardface jacket, from Windbloc Polartec fabric. Shavano is an improved version of last year's Ascensoft Jacket, refined by a former major manufacturer design engineer. Shavano is constructed from a Polartec 2-layer hybrid laminate fabric with chest yoke and elbows overlay in reinforced, waterproof-coated, ripstop Nylon. 2-layer laminate material consists of DWR-coated nylon 96%/Spandex4% over an interior Hi Loft Velour polyester insulator. Two material layers are fused together using proprietary Polartec technologies. PU coated nylon yoke and elbows for extra tough strength. Exceptional breathing qualities that minimize goggle fogging. Breathability helps disperse moisture from the body that would be retained by an ordinary hardshell. Shavano has an adjustable and over-sized fleece-lined collar, that easily covers the face and also has an adjustable and over-sized fleece-lined hood, that can easily accommodate a helmet without having to unzip the collar. Dual adjustments make the hood useful, with or without a helmet. The hood brim forms a natural rain soffit to help protect your face, and when cinched, hood turns with the head so that vision is not impaired. Shavano has additional breathing venting features, such as the YKK tru one-handed pull: pit zippers, pocket zippers, and 2-way front-separating zipper. Behind the front zipper is a wind-block panel. Shavano interior has two non-closing, roomy pockets to carry skins or extra goggles. Shavano exterior has three YKK zippered pockets, including two side pockets which are single-sided and fleece-lined, plus a pass-through for Ipod headphone cables in right inside pocket bag (look inside interior waist pocket liner). Bottom of the Shavano has a dual-adjusting cinch that serves as a powder skirt when needed. Easily warm enough for temps into the minus teens with proper base layers. The Shavano represents the pinnacle of American-Made Quality and technology at an affordable price. Color: SAGE/OLIVE. Two word summary....Bomber Proof!
