Description

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.
