The Särmä Outdoor Jacket is made for use in somewhat rougher climates and terrain, but is comfortable and subdued enough for casual street use. For sunny hikes on easy trails consider something else, as this is made from a strong canvas to take a beating without a flinch.
The question is, can a canvas jacket be comfortable to wear on the move and does it breathe? The answer to both is a resounding "YES!". Thanks to articulated elbows, ventilation in the front and back and stretchy underarm gussets, this jacket won’t hold you back.
Breathability and mobility are further improved by a 4-way stretch material we used at the armpits. You can think of the main material as an armour plate and the soft stretchy stuff is the chainmaille.
The cut is unisex, we have hit the sweet spot of female and male anatomies. Try it on if you don't believe us!
We designed the Outdoor Jacket to look good, but only after getting the cut and details where we wanted to. The pockets are not numerous, but much smarter. Here’s a list of the nice things:
The primary material is a durable 65/35 % poly-cotton canvas, which is a type you might find on bags and such. It's treated to repel dirt and water with C6 DWR while retaining a good breathability. C6 is commonly used and works well, but we're looking for more environmentally friendly options all the time.
Secondary material: 4-way stretch 92/8 % polyester-elastane. Very breathable and comfortable.
Lining: 100 % polyester mesh, we chose a very strong type for this jacket, but carry sharp items elsewhere.
Close all zippers and snap-fasteners before machine wash in 40 degrees Celsius.
We have listed first the easy size, then user's recommended measurements: user height / chest circumference in centimetres. These have a straight cut, so if you want to wear thick layers underneath, consider sizing up. If you are at the limit between two sizes, rounding up is safe.
Below are the actual chest width (laid flat) and sleeve length from the shoulder seam. The waist is a bit smaller than the chest to achieve a regular fit, but this difference is reduced with larger sizes; 2XL is cut almost straight.
* Measured from the hood lower edge to hem.
There's good quality to be found in the PRC, as long as you don't choose the lowest bidder.
