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.
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.
