Travel Shell Parka / Forest Green 60/40

$ 590

The Travel Shell Parka is perfect for hiking and stylish enough to wear to a bar after the hike (meaning one less jacket to pack for your next trip!). The excellent construction helps protect from the weather and allows for greater range of movement. It also has clever pockets that will store all the components you need for your next adventure.

Fabric note: This lovely American-made 60/40 is back by popular demand. What’s the difference between 65/35 and 60/40? First off, the 65/35 is a poly/cotton blend while the 60/40 is cotton/nylon. However, both blends serve the same basic function: when rain hits the fabric, the cotton threads begin to swell, but the non-cotton threads woven in the opposite direction prevent the cotton from continuing to swell, thus encouraging water to bead up and drop off. 60/40 was the original “naturally” water resistant fabric and appeared first on the outdoor textile scene. We’ve been making garments in this 60/40 off and on for many years, and we love to see how the fabric changes and develops with ongoing use.
