The all new BOREAS G-LOFT® II jacket is the successor of our famous BOREAS jacket. The BOREAS has by far the best warmth/weight-ratio of the entire collection and is suitable for year round wear. The new matte olive, sturdy Cordura®-nylon micro ripstop fabric gives the this innovative garment a whole new strength. This jacket is an absolute flyweight and wonderfully warm. For example, if you wear the BOREAS jacket with a Merino T-shirt and a light Merino mid-layer under our 365 jacket, you can easily make it through the winter without ever being cold. In addition, the pack size of the BOREAS G-LOFT® II jacket is so small that you can fold down the entire jacket and store it in one of the lower sewn-in pockets.
The outer fabric is also equipped with an improved (eco-friendly) DWR finish to allow water to run off easily. The padding of the jacket is made of outstanding G-LOFT® from our Austrian partner Goldeck Textil. In our opinion, the best artificial down currently available on the market. The advantages of G-Loft®: extremely good warmth/weight-ratio, extremely quick-drying,very small pack size, almost waterproof, and: made in Europe. For those who value highly functional, lightweight and versatile gear, we highly recommend our Boreas Jacket.
Whether worn individually as a jacket or as a super warm mid-layer – whether spending hours screening interesting hunting spots while being exposed to the wind or while game stalking: the BOREAS jacket is perfect for anyone who loves down garments for hunting but don’t want their jacket to get soaked in the rain… Details of the Boreas jacket: stand-up collar with windproof placket, 1 inside pocket, 2 side pockets and a main zip size #5 with orange zipper typical for MerkelGEAR.
