Fortitude is for hill walking when you need wet weather protection in classic British conditions. It’ll keep more of you dry with its longer cut whilst keeping driving winds at bay. Fortitude has a relaxed fit to enable you to layer up effectively and drawcords allow you to cinch the jacket when you’re not wearing as much. The outer fabric is 100% recycled, hard-wearing and is treated with a PFC-free DWR.

Designer‘s notes

Fortitude is our most sustainable waterproof shell to date, merging high performance technologies with environmentally responsible choices. We use recycled materials wherever we can without compromising on performance, so the outer fabric uses a 70 denier polyester that’s really hardwearing, and it’s 100% recycled to reduce our demand on virgin materials.

Sustainability & Care

Environmental impact

PFC-free DWR

Fortitude uses a completely PFC-free DWR treatment on its outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment

Recycled material

We use recycled fabrics whenever we can without compromising on the performance of the product. Fortitude uses a 100% recycled polyester face fabric made from post-consumer recycled content

Washing instructions

Washing: 30° delicate cycle or hand wash 
Drying: line dry or tumble dry on low heat
Ironing: use a cool iron to reactive the DWR.

Use a technical product wash or pure soap. DO NOT use detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners.

Caring for your DWR

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.

How to measure

This size chart indicates the body measurements our garments are designed to fit. Measure yourself as described below and use the size chart to find your size.


Measure around your chest at the widest part. The tape measure should pass under your arms and be level from front to back.


Measure around your waist at the narrowest point.


With your arms relaxed by your side, tilt your head down and ask a friend to measure from the bone at the base of your neck, over your shoulder and down your arm to the fold at your wrist.
