Jackets & Gilets
What are softshells and what advantages do they offer?
Softshells provide more climate comfort and freedom of movement than classic weatherproof jackets and offer protection in 90% of all weather conditions. The idea originates from mountain sports, and the range of softshell apparel now available is extensive.
There are two different types of softshells with different highlights:
FLEX SHIELD SOFTSHELL
- Excellent breathability
- Extremely generous freedom of movement
- Wind-resistant and water-repellent
- No additional membrane or coating (= higher breathability)
- Windproof and water-repellent
- High level of comfort
Softshells do not claim to provide maximum protection; instead, they offer the optimum mix of weather protection and comfort. The softshell motto is therefore: “Put it on and leave it on!”
