The New 3rd Element / Jacket

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2006

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2006

The 3rd Element Jacket is a revolutionary 3-in-1 garment, combining unique Nikwax Directional Waterproof textile with modular design so your comfort can suit the activity/weather. It addresses the issue with conventional layering, that temperature adjustment must be made in big steps, removing whole layers, affecting both arms & torso. The 3rd Element components can be worn separately or combined without fuss - the ‘arms’ element removed to give a gilet, or put on for rapid insulation. The design is functional, stylish & uncomplicated – a contoured fit, scooped tail, wired hood, rear pocket (for the ‘arms’) & 2 map-sized chest pockets.
