PRESENTING SHARK SKIN SOFTSHELL JACKET
Softshell jackets are versatile and comfortable universal garments positioned between mid and outer layers as we pointed out in our post about softshells and softshell jackets. Designed to maximize water resistance and breathability, softshell jackets are windproof, flexible, and multifunctional - well suited for nearly all possible conditions except for extreme or prolonged wet weather. Synthetic materials (usually nylon and polyester) are the typical materials for softshells since they are strong, supple, easy to work with, and ensure good thermal insulation and enough comfort even if wet.
A good softshell jacket is well-designed and includes a variety of details including an adjustable hood for warmth and additional protection from the elements, vented underarms for increased breathability and better ventilation, soft fleece lining for superb thermal protection, elastic drawstring waistband with cord locks for a perfect fit, adjustable hook-and-loop sleeve cuffs to seal in body heat, two-way full front zipper and a stand-up collar to keep cold air out, and multiple internal and external pockets ensuring enough storage for your items during your trip.
Shark Skin Softshell Jacket is a comfortable all-purpose men's tactical jacket made to keep you warm and dry in cool, cold, and windy climates. The softshell is fully windproof and highly water-resistant. Moreover, the jacket is waterproof (8000 mm water column), which means that it will keep you dry in light showers. The softshell jacket is a durable three-layer garment, which consists of a:
- Outer layer: an elastic and high-density blend of polyester and spandex allows a full range of motion when performing strenuous actions.
- Mid layer: waterproof breathable film membrane (DINTEX membrane) quickly dissipates excess moisture to keep you dry.
- Inner layer: lined with soft fleece to keep you warm when the temperature drops.
Strong full front double zipper and a stand-up collar with chin guard and stowable and adjustable hood with elastic drawstring and cord locks offer additional weather protection from rain and wind. Fleece lining ensures thermal insulation, while underarm zippers for better air circulation and ventilation gives an excellent body moisture management and won't let you overheat during high-intensity activities. Elasticated Velcro adjustable cuffs and drawstring waistband seal in warmth and enhance overall utility.
The multi-pocket design of this tactical softshell jacket includes various secure zip pockets with zip garages placed on the chest, biceps, lower back (large dual-access pocket for storing maps, gloves, and other gear), and forearm, which offer plenty of room for storing small accessories and valuables safe when in motion and ensure quick, easy access.
Gusseted sides and reinforced elbows allow freedom of movement and provide long-lasting durability for maximum strength and performance. Elongated tail for better back coverage while active and external loop panels for patches add to the functionality of this tactical softshell jacket.
Shark Skin Softshell Jackets come in a variety of sizes, colors, and camo patterns, including Desert, ACU, and A-TACS camouflage. Moreover, you can choose from 10-15 camo patterns and several solid colors, including black, grey, OD, and khaki (a natural camo - used by the British Army as the main color of some of the first modern camouflage uniforms). You can choose between Shark Skin Softshell Jacket offered in four solid colors, CP camo, and ACU camo, and Shark Skin Softshell Jacket II offered in more than 10 distinct camo patterns and several other colors such as black, brown, and grey.
Multifunctional and hard-wearing, combining comfort with high tactical utility, Shark Skin Softshell Jacket is a versatile and durable tactical jacket perfect for everyday wear, security personnel, as well as for outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, hunting, airsoft, paintball or travel expeditions.
