The BLACKCOMB FUTUREKNIT 3L Jacket is a unique, highly innovative waterproof jacket, creating a revolution in the Outdoor shells. Fully knitted and incredibly stretchy, this jacket moves with you, not against you making it a much higher performing outerlayer than traditional woven third layer jacket.
REVOLUTIONIZING THE HARDSHELL JACKET
When creating this jacket, we have applied our expertise of more than 70 years in knitting to push its limits by expressing our DNA through the fabric itself, which is proudly knitted in Germany. The result features a seamless organic bodymapping, ensuring moisture management through the placed holes and higher abrasion resistance on the thicker areas.Its effectiveness in protecting you from the elements and its lightness combined with its excellent breathability make it ideal for hiking all year round as well as for snowshoeing in winter.
In crafting this jacket, we are redifining the second & third layer by knitting through the layers, from the inside out, from the baselayer up to the outerlayer. The jacket consists of a high performing membrane (20.000mm water permeability / 20'000g/m2 breathability), sandwiched between two fully knitted face & inside fabrics, providing the highest protection against the elements, while acting like a second skin thanks to the incredible stretch provided through knitting.
ADDITIONAL STUNNING FEATURES
In addition to its 20'000mm waterproofness and 20'000g/m2 breathability, the jacket comes with a 3-point adjustable hood, with a stiffened visor and a wide collar to have you ready for your most intense adventures in harsh weather.
Another innovative detail: instead of Velcro™, the cuff adjuster features a new type of fastening system with small plastic studs. It's easy to use and holds securely. This eliminates the issue of pilling caused by abrasive Velcro™ fasteners coming into contact with fine midlayer and underwear fabrics.
NEW ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARD
Sustainability has always been a part of ODLO's DNA. What is revolutionary from an ecological point of view with this new jacket is the fact that it is knitted, which considerably reduces the trimming waste involved in the usual method of designing cut and sewn jackets.
