Argonaut will keep you dry in a real downpour and stashes neatly into a rucksack when the rain stops. It's lightweight, packable protection with a relaxed fit for layering on the move. A do-it-all waterproof, it's equally at home strolling up fells, riding churned up bridleways or wrestling with a tent in a downpour.
"For Argonaut, we've combined high spec fabrics with a relaxed fit to create a hard-wearing, everyday waterproof that's suited to a range of activities. We chose a 2.5-layer construction to keep weight down and make it super packable. On those showery days it doesn't need to be left at home. Just shove it in a pack for when it's needed.
The face fabric is 50D ripstop nylon that's 100% recycled to battle everyday wear and tear and is finished with a 100% PFC-free DWR. We've kept the features of Argonaut simple but not basic. Vented pockets, a roll-away hood and adjustable fit are there for comfort whatever the activity."

Argonaut uses a 100% recycled nylon outer fabric, made from post-industrial sources. This uses any leftover stuff from nylon production and fabric scraps from the cutting process and remakes it into brand new nylon fabric.
Argonaut has a completely PFC-free DWR treatment on its outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment. We don't like the sound of that and are one of the first outdoor brands in the world to eliminate them from our range.
Our products are made in the best factories in the world. We know the factories personally and they have all signed up to our Code of Ethics in our supply chain. This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intensity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.

To keep your jacket’s DWR treatment in good condition, wash it regularly in pure soap or a specialist cleaner. You may also need to refresh the treatment once or twice a year dependent on usage. Use a spray-on reproofer to maintain your jacket's wicking ability.
