This windproof insulated soft shell jacket combines Schoeller Dynamic Extreme with Primaloft stretch laminate.
The marriage of these cutting-edge fabric technologies gives you a jacket that is perfect for a wide range of pursuits,
so you can be confident that the Recon IS will keep you comfortable whether on-route or off-piste.
In practice the Recon is a piece that combines the best of both worlds.
It offers all the warmth of an insulated jacket, along with the extremely breathable, durable
and water-repellent finish of the Shoeller face fabric.
The Recon can take all the hammer you can throw at it, and come back for more.
The combination of breathability and insulation means that the Recon is suitable for use in a much wider temperature range
than a standard softshell or down jacket, making it a worth-while investment compared to purchasing these items separately.
"This is the stretchiest, warmest soft shell I've ever worn, and I say that for no other reason than I believe it's true" -Andrew Bisharat, Rock & Ice Magazine
