Winner of a Gold Award*1 at ISPO 2015, this DERMIZAX® MATTE 4 WAY STRETCH jacket features not only non-quilted thermal bonding and seam tape construction for superb waterproofing, but also the new StreamLine system that channels rain or other moisture droplets away from jacket pockets, and to the side of the hood to improve bad weather visibility.
A mesh panel between dual front zips draws in outside air to prevent uncomfortable heat and moisture buildup, and the unique Para-Hood system *2 prevents water or snow from pooling around the neck.
*1 ISPO is the world’s largest international sports business show, held annually in Munich, Germany. For the ISPO Awards, sports-related products are judged strictly on concept, design, technicality, environmental sensitivity and other criteria, with superior products winning awards that are highly regarded within the industry.

*2 Incorporation of a Para-Zip permits rapid opening and closing of the hood when necessary.*2 When the hood is not required, it can be closed using the Parazip, and can be quickly reopened whenever necessary.
