Shavano 2 Layer Polartec Jacket by Freemont Systems Made in America
The Shavano Jacket is a "Made-in-Colorado USA", hybrid, 4-way stretch, softshell jacket. It is named for the 14,229 ft. peak in the Colorado Sawatch Mountain Range, as well as for Chief Shavano from the Ute Native American Tribe. Shavano is an improved version of last year's Ascensoft Jacket, refined by a former major manufacturer design engineer. Shavano is constructed from an Evertek fabric, 2-layer, softshell material with chest yoke and elbows overlay in reinforced, waterproof-coated, rip stop Nylon. 2-layer softshell material consists of a DWR-coated layer with micro-grid nylon/spandex, over an interior polyester insulator layer. 2 fabric layers are fused together using proprietary Evertek technologies. Coated nylon yoke helps keep horizontal surfaces that would ordinarily catch snowflakes or raindrops moisture-free. Shavano has exceptional breathing qualities that minimize goggle fogging. Breathability helps disperse moisture from the body that would be retained by an ordinary hard shell. 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. This feature is usually found only with more expensive jackets. 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, the hood turns with the head so that vision is not impaired. Shavano has more venting qualities, such as the one-handed pull, pit zippers, and a 2-way, front-separating zipper. Behind the front zipper is a sewn-in, wind-block panel.
Shavano's interior has two non-closing, roomy pockets to carry skins or extra goggles. Shavano's exterior has three zippered pockets, including two side pockets which are single-sided and fleece-lined, plus a pass-through for IPod cables. All zippers are heavy duty YKK. Shavano has a dual-adjusting cinch at bottom of jacket 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. One word description...Bomber!
