No more snags
Anti-snag hem draw cords discourage snagging when harnesses and gear is worn; a problem encountered with traditional loop draw cords.
Water repellence in every detail
YKK® AquaGuard® VISLON® water repellent front zip and YKK® AquaGuard® water repellent chest pocket zips.
What’s the point of waterproof if you’re always soaked with sweat?
Built with Polartec® NeoShell®, a waterproof 3-layer fabric with the most breathable membrane in the world. Shedding layers or relying on pit-zips can be avoided altogether through enhanced breathability. Prior to NeoShell® the elusive balance between waterproof and windproof protection and true breathability had yet to exist in a hard shell fabric.
Triple reinforced stitching ensures the VELCRO™ will not detach from the garment. Hypalon® cuff tabs are harder wearing and longer lasting than fabric cuff tabs. The elasticated cinch provides the best possible seal against the elements.

You’re not paying for extra pockets, or fancy venting systems. Materials are high quality and manufacturing standards are very good. The face fabric feels robust but is still fairly lightweight. Overall, the Jöttnar jacket just says excellent quality. Best in test.
A formidable system against the harshest of winter conditions. Overall, this is serious kit equal to the most serious of weather.
Using NeoShell instead of any other membrane is the key; the incredible breathability is not only noticeable, it's a pleasure to try and push its limits.
The attention to detail is amazing, the stitch count is high. The laser cutting is precise and all the fittings are well thought out and high quality.
