Description

Resolute soft shell jacket shuts out the worst of the elements to keep you comfortable over a wide range of conditions.

  • Double weave fabric is durable, breathable and highly wind resistant
  • Water resistant with a DWR treatment to keep off light showers
  • Stretchy material for comfort and complete freedom of movement

The first thing you’ll notice when you put on the Resolute is that it feels incredibly comfortable yet tough enough to keep you protected for years to come. A double weave fabric with a water repellent coating makes Resolute abrasion and wind resistant on the outside, yet comfy and breathable on the inside.

A bit of spandex in the fabric gives you plenty of freedom to move, making it excellent for anything from local winter cragging to crisp alpine summer days. Resolute has an a standard fit, with articulated arms and a drop hem to ensure that you can push yourself on the harder moves without feeling restricted and prevents cold spots.

When you’re climbing or scrambling, Resolute’s feature-set really comes into its own. The hood fits over a helmet, with 3 hood adjustment points for getting a good fit and a stow-away tab for when you want it out of the way. The front 2-way zip lets Resolute fit over your harness, and if you prefer to tuck your jacket into your harness you’ll still have access to the large external and internal chest pockets.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

Caring For Your DWR
The Resolute uses a durable water repellent treatment (DWR) for extra weather protection. To keep your DWR working at its best, wash your jacket regularly in pure soap or a specialist cleaner. You may also need to refresh the treatment about once or twice a year (depending on usage) using a reproofer. Using a spray-on reproofer maintains your jacket’s wicking ability.

Washing Instructions
Wash on a delicate cycle at 30˚C or hand wash with lukewarm water. Use a technical wash product (like Nikwax Tech Wash or Grangers Performance Wash) or pure soap. DO NOT use detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners. Rinse thoroughly in clean water. Line dry or tumble dry on low heat.

Fit Guide
Tight Slim Regular Relaxed
Close fitting designed to conform to your body shape. Slim and slightly contoured but not form fitting. A comfortable fit that's not too tight, nor too loose. A looser fit with a bit more space but not too baggy.
