Särmä Softshell Jacket, Black
Today, softshell is pretty much what tight wool was back in the day; a great general purpose fabric for colder and uncertain weather. No wonder they make most of the sportswear of this. Our jacket is just a shell, so you can layer it any way you wish.
- A shell jacket worn on top of everything else - the fit is geneours
- Keeps out wind and light rain too
- Good assortment of pockets, active cut
- 96/4 % polyester/elastane, 270 g/m2
Sometimes you know the weather is going to get a bit messy, but you're not quite sure when. For these occasions, a softshell jacket is an invaluable addition to the wardrobe, as it is water resistant, quite breathable and dries pretty quickly. And this is indeed just a shell, you do not get a free but fixed fluffy layer with it, so the useful temperature range is very wide. Our humble suggestion for a good liner jacket is the Särmä wool fleece jacket.
- Fits generously enough to facilitate warm layers underneath, active cut
- Zippered front with tall collar
- Removable hood
- Adjustments in the hem, hood and cuffs
- Ventilation zippers in the armpits
- Hook 'n' loop bases in the arms for all kinds of diddly-daddly patches or reflectors
- Handwarmer pockets
- Chest pockets
- A large poachers pocket on the back
- Small pockets on the arms
- All pockets are zipper operated with mesh pouches
Made of oh-so-smooth, 96% polyester / 4% elastane fabric, which keeps out wind and is waterproof up to 5000 mm (TPU membrane), essentially keeps out light rain forever. Light, smooth polyester weave on the inside face to add comfort and structure. Breathability 3000 g/m2/24 h, in other words not a plastic bag, but definitely not a cool summer cloth either. The seams are not taped. Fabric weight 270 g/m2.
The fabric is pretty smooth and tight, which means it slips over the lower layer easily. Further, it will not pollute the environment with microplastics as much as fluffier alternatives.
The easy size designations are followed by recommended user height and chest circumference.
The recommended size allows for a beefy thermal mid-layer. If you wear fewer layers and want the jacket closer to your body, you can safely pick a smaller size. The following chart has measurements of the garment itself.

|Small||104 cm||69,5 cm||72 cm|

Olkapäiden velcrotarrat turhat. Kainaloiden, selän ja olkapäiden vetoketjuista saksin vetolenkit pois, ettei näytä hoopolta hapsutakilta.
Itsellä L/long ja on tässä normaalia pidemmät hihat ja riittää juuri tavalliselle ihmiselle. Tällaisenään varmasti kuitenkin pisimmät hihat mitä valmistiskiltä saa lähimmästä kivijalkakyläkaupasta. Olisin toivonut itselle vielä 2 cm pidempiä hihoja. Vyötäröltä erittäin sopiva kun painoindeksini on normaali. Jos olisi enemmän gravitaatiota, niin saattaisi jäädä ahtaaksi. Kiitos Varusteleka tästä, että kerrankin on vaatteita joillekkin muille kuin vain lyhyille sekä lihaville!

The material is a bit thicker than that used in competing products, such as from "patagucci", but this works well in the UK. In our cold rainy spring weather I am totally comfortable (and dry, if raining) wearing this with just a t-shirt underneath - which is fundamentally what I was after.
Also, it looks really nice.
