Escape Jacket - Sweet Survivor
The weather isn’t always pleasant, but should that put you off going out and having fun? I don’t think so! Good gear is essential to enjoy the ride. The idea behind this jacket is to develop an item that can replace all those specific jackets that you take normally with you, so you don’t have to choose between a rain jacket, wind jacket or a casual jacket. The Escape Jacket is for you, whether your escape is a 300 km bike packing route across the Netherlands or nipping across town for a coffee.
Although we’re definitely not made of sugar, we don’t mind a touch of (lilac) sweetness when we’re surviving the elements right?
The Escape jacket is made up of two complementary layers. The outer layer maintains a water repellent (DWR) coating and the inner membrane is completely waterproof. This double layer system gives versatility and efficiency. The two-way zipper makes temp control and pocket access effortless, so you won’t need to totally unzip to get to your stashed pockets.
The storm hood features an elasticated closure to keep the weather at bay and can be worn over or under a helmet. A magnet system keeps the hood in place when it’s not being used, to stop it flapping in the wind. A large chest pocket keeps your valuables safe from the rain and close to hand. Reflective stripes on the sleeves and a reflective, zipped pocket on the rear ensure you stay seen in low light conditions.
