The Falcon Jacket gives you something not found in ordinary jackets—GORE-TEX® 2-Layer construction. Is it waterproof? You bet. A GORE-TEX membrane is laminated to the inside of a rugged, tear- and abrasion-resistant outer layer and the inside of the membrane is protected by a separate lining that allows moisture to escape. Then all the seams are taped so water is effectively sealed out. Comfort and performance features include a foldaway hood with cord adjusters, quick-drying brushed mesh collar lining, water-resistant center zipper with inner drainage channel, pre-molded hook-and-loop external wrist adjusters, shockcorded hem adjustment and zipped chest and side pockets. The raglan sleeves are articulated so you won’t get caught short reaching for a halyard, plus the silhouette is contoured to reduce wind drag. Imported.
