It's not always easy to define what a "Softshell" is
The softshell jacket or just “softshell” is simply essential protection for outdoor activities. Its name comes from its "softshell" technology which is an assembly of a windproof, breathable membrane, sandwiched between the water-repellent outer face and the inner face, which can be made of a more or less warm comfortable fleece.
The benefits of a softshell jacket
A softshell garment offers good thermal insulation thanks to its outer fabric and its membrane, which will protect you from the wind, as well as its lining.
Unlike a parka or waterproof jacket, the fabrics of softshell jackets are flexible, breathable and covered with a water-repellent coating which means this garment can withstand light rain.
Very functional, the softshell offers a sporty look that’s both chic and laid back.
Fact sheet of our eco-design commitments
To reduce our environmental impact, we have put measures in place on several levels:
- the outer fabric is made of 100% recycled polyester
- the inner fleece uses a clean dyeing process called dope dyed (the yarns are self-dyed) which reduces CO2 emissions by 21%
- the patronage has been designed to reduce fabric losses as much as possible, which has made it possible to achieve 90% efficiency.
Windproof and provides warmth
The wind makes you feel considerably colder.
With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°.
The so-called “windproof” components take away this discomfort by creating a barrier against the wind; they also reduce heat loss extremely efficiently.
The level of breathability of this jacket
The main fabric has a windproof membrane with a breathability of 3,009 g/sqm per 24 hours (according to the JIS L1099 standard, A2 method).

The level of water-repellency of this jacket
The water repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.
This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight and warm.
The fabric is made water-repellent by treating (PFC-free) its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.
We recommend that you restore it after each wash.
