Outlier Nyco FreeShell jacket

November 5, 2013

More outerwear from Outlier. But when the label keeps releasing such great clothing, why not? For your perusal today comes the Nyco FreeShell jacket – technical, impervious to the elements and good looking too. Exactly what you want from a jacket in my book.







Featuring Outlier’s four-way stretch 4Season, Schoeller Dryskin Extreme fabric water (or any kind of liquid) is repelled immediately whilst the fabric in no way impedes the wearer. Added to this is the Nyco fabric, zoned on the sleeves and hood. This particular fabric is a 50% nylon, 50% cotton which was developed by the US military and used in the original M-65 jackets and Korean War era paratrooper pants.

This zoned application of Nyco plus the main body of 4Season fabric gives the jacket extra structure and wind resistance, making a versatile jacket that can be worn through cool nights and light rain without overheating when the sun comes out. The three-piece hood  is engineered to fit close to your neck and head, giving you weather coverage without compromising your peripheral vision whilst the label’s new easy pull adjustments allow you to tighten up or loosen with one hand while in full motion.

Elsewhere discreet front pockets and three internal pockets make sure you can carry what you need, whilst velcro cuff adjusters, a two-way front zip and an integrated carry strap finish things off. For more information on the label, or to buy via their online shop, go to the website here: Outlier.
