The new ‘Nordic Green’ XTR Jacket has hit the shelves and we’ve added some exciting new changes as well as the colour.
Firstly we’ve changed the tone of green for this jacket based on what you guys had to say. You told us that you prefer this colour so we’ve switched over to a green that’s a bit more “casual-wear” friendly as well as still passing the animal vision test. We are also starting to roll out Nordic Green in a few more products as well.
Now the famous XTR Jacket itself has a had a bit of a revamp and we’re excited about some of the changes we’ve managed to include in it. First of all we’ve stripped out the old waterproof/breathable membrane and added a brand new TPU Pacstealth Membrane. We are confident that this might just be one of, if not the best hunting waterproof membrane on the market.
Next we changed over to a YKK® Vislon Zipper. This big grunty zipper makes it a bit easier to get a grip on the slider when your wearing thick gloves on those cold days on top of the mountain. We’ve also put in massive YKK Aquaguard CNT8 waterproof zippers under the arms to allow rapid heat dumping for you when you switch from glassing to climbing those hills.
As well as the changes we’ve kept with the other features that have made the XTR such a successful jacket over the last ten years. A TunnelTECH peaked, fixed Hood that sits high and covers plenty, but still allows for peripheral vision , keeps the rain out and the head warm. Articulated arms sit in a more comfortable position and don’t ride down the same when you lift your arms to glass or grip your rifle sling. Discreet but massive Chest Pockets accommodate large items such as Binos and GPS units. And finally two lower bellowed chest pockets are bar-tacked in all the right places and cover large hand warmers for those cold mornings.
