The Men's Calgary Softshell from Ayacucho is a great jacket for beginner to intermediate, hill and mountain use. The laminated softshell fabric combines a slight stretch with water repellency and breathability to keep you comfortable throughout your day. It also has a contrasting, brightly coloured inner which helps wick away any excess moisture from your skin to keep you dry and feeling warmer.
The peaked hood is fully adjustable with drawcords at both sides on the front as well as a drawcord at the back to create a snug, cap-like fit. This allows the hood to move with you giving you better protection from the elements and making sure that when you look around you can see what you intended as opposed to looking at the inside of your hood. A drawcord at the hem allows you to cinch the bottom of the jacket in to ensure you keep any unwanted, cold, breezes out. A great jacket for those not-too-hot-not-too-cold kind of days.
Cotswold Outdoor works together with Solid International, a private foundation that sets up projects to combat global poverty. Since 2000, Solid International, with the support of the business community, has been investing in sustainable community development and in the intensive training and supervision of vulnerable groups – initially with a focus on the Peruvian Ayacucho region, but later also in Kenya and India. This allows the locals to acquire knowledge and take control of their own lives.
A noble and sustainable project – one that Cotswold Outdoor is proud to be a part of. How? It’s simple. Since 2009, every product from the Ayacucho® collection that is sold, generates new funds for their existing projects and for new initiatives.
