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.
Deep in the heart of the Andes Mountains is the region of Ayacucho. A traditional farming community, many families here live below the poverty line. However, despite facing daily hardship, the people of Ayacucho embrace whatever the world can throw at them. It was from this spirit of determination that the Ayacucho range was born.
Ayacucho clothing is inspired by the people of the region, and designed with a focus on responsible sourcing and technological advancement. Combining comfort and style, Ayacucho clothing is ideally suited to any environment- whether you’re tackling the trek to work or climbing Snowdon.
