The Palaearktis 365 Vest is a very light, wind-proof vest, which has been imagined after the successful “365 Jacket”.  The fit of this versatile vest, which has been made due to a lot of customer requests, is a slimmer fit than the jacket and it possesses the same elongated waist. The soft and supple 3 layer laminate with integrated 37.5® membrane protects against the Wind-chill-factor, damp weather and creeping cold. On the inside an improved waffle-fleece backing warms the wearer and transports unnecessary warmth away from the body due to a micro-structure. The, for Merkel GEAR newly designed, abrasion-proof 4-way-stretch soft-shell consists out of a technical, high-active 37.5® polyester fabric which can follow any movement. A tight fitting collar warms the neck. All unnecessary seams were omitted to prevent pressure marks. Due to an improved (PFOA & PFC free) DWR coating, the vest acts hydrophobic. It is fitted with a large breast pocket, which can be closed with a silent zipper. Two large hand-warmer pockets have netting which can function as a ventilation option. The lower part of the pockets is lined with a soft Loop-Fabric to attach the included cartridge patch and keeps the hands warm.
