Women’s Cove Hybrid Jacket
The key ingredient to this jacket is the use of Polartec® Alpha® insulation. This fabric is a new technology with active insulation that regulates core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities. This latest advancement in adaptable breathability helps eliminate the need of shedding or adding layers while on the move.
In order to integrate this fabric, our designers had to make considerations on how the female body sweats and regulates temperature. Scientifically, we realized that women’s core body temperature is a few degrees below a man’s temperature. So gentlemen, listen up when she says she’s cold. We did. We added an extra 40 g of Polartec® Alpha® insulation in the Women’s Cove Hybrid Jacket beyond what the Men’s Cove Hybrid Jacket gets, and we didn’t stop there. We also looked at the high sweat zones and added breathable, stretchable and moisture-wicking channels on the back, for example, to help increase body heat regulation.
The overall cut of the jacket features a silhouette-enhancing design with slightly flared side panels and anatomically positioned chest baffles to flatter and fit the female form. Then come the details like thumbholes to reduce bulging in the sleeves, two discreet front pockets (one with a key hook) that are large enough for storing gloves, and feminine color accents.
What might be the biggest draw to this jacket, however, is its versatility. Let’s face it ladies, we are frugal when it comes to outdoor gear. We still want to afford the new shoes and bags, so we created a product that can be ideal for walking, skiing, and fatbiking or even the little side-trip to the café with the girls before or after a workout.
