The Men's Velez is a versatile jacket that is suitable for mountain walking, cycling, climbing and backpacking. It utilises Nikwax Analogy fabric for optimum comfort, providing waterproof protection, warmth, and cooling in one garment.
Discreet but very effective ventilation and an athletic shape minimises wind-resistance and noise. A large, mesh lined sleeve/ torso vents channel fresh air, inhibit cold spots and minimise rain ingress, carefully positioned vents and pocketing offer optimum cooling when working hard and mesh reinforcement in the back panel enhances weather protection when carrying a rucksack.
Two dual zip chest pockets securely hold maps, navigation tools and valuables and doubles up as ventilation. Innovative sleeve vents use mesh pump liner to evenly channel fresh air while inhibiting cold spots and adjustable cuffs allow you to roll up the sleeves for extra ventilation.
Fully articulated shoulders and elbows offer maximum freedom of movement and excellent field of vision and protection is provided by the fully adjustable, helmet-compatible halo hood, with a wired peak.
The two-way reversed front zip with internal storm flap offers extra ventilation and visibility is improved from the use of reflective flashes. A scooped tail with hem drawcord also offers lower back protection.
