A great all-round performer for walking, climbing, backpacking, or indeed any activity where you need to stay warm, comfortable and protected from the elements.
The outer face of the Sunderland is a durable, tightly woven fabric with an elastane content and a water repellent treament; the inner is a soft brushed microfleece. All this means you get a jacket which allows you to move, which guards agains cold, wind and a good deal of the rain, but which doesn't rustle like more traditional hard shell garments. The protection continues into the hood, which is peaked and fully adjustable to ensure that whatever the weather may be doing, it's not getting into your jacket.
Articulated elbows further enhance the your ability to move without restriction, and the positioning of the pockets allows you to access them when wearing a harness or rucksack. A brilliant, well thought out, jack-of-all-trades jacket.
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.
Ayacucho® clothing and equipment is designed with a focus on responsible, careful sourcing and modern-day technological advancement, giving your adventure the welcome combination of responsibility, comfort and style. This quality outdoor clothing functions to a high standard in challenging environments. Technical outerwear, T-shirts, backpacks or sleeping mats: Ayacucho® helps young and old to venture out into the world with high-quality outfits and material that lasts for years.
