Womens Waterproof Soft Shell Merino Jacket

Introducing our latest innovation, the ‘Ascent’ jacket. Crafted from Schoeller NanoSphere® fabric—a premium, lightweight, 4-way stretch softshell material infused with 100% pure Tasmanian Merino wool, ethically sourced and mulesing-free—the ‘Ascent’ Merino Softshell Jacket is a versatile garment ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities including snow sports, mountaineering, hiking, camping, cycling, and adventure travel.

The NanoSphere® fabric provides exceptional water repellency while maintaining breathability and windproof properties, ensuring comfort in variable conditions. Featuring Core YKK® hand pockets designed to avoid interference with pack straps, a two-way YKK® main zipper, YKK® chest pocket, articulated elbows, and tapered, adjustable snap cuffs, the ‘Ascent’ jacket offers functionality without compromise. Remarkably lightweight at just 550 grams, it combines practicality with style, making it a standout choice for outdoor enthusiasts.

So, what exactly is NanoSphere®?
Inspired by nature, NanoSphere® mimics the self-cleaning effect observed in certain plants’ leaves. On traditional surfaces, water, oil, and dirt are absorbed, leading to adhesion and staining. However, on the NanoSphere® surface of the ‘Ascent’ jacket, nanoparticles create a fine structure where water, dirt, and oil only cling to the peaks of the nanostructures, reducing adhesion. This results in water and dirt rolling off the fabric, keeping the garment clean and functional even in challenging conditions.
