Often deemed the bread and butter of an outdoor enthusiast’s kit is the Hard Shell Jacket. Waterproof, windproof, and breathable- the Hard Shell’s job is to keep us dry and protected from the elements, no matter how extreme the conditions. We use only industry-leading 3-Layer fabric for our hard shell jackets, so you can rely on your gear, wherever your adventures take you!
