“Be prepared” is a useful motto, and with the Ayacucho Stowaway Eco Jacket, you have no excuse not to be prepared for bad weather. This practical rain jacket has been a favourite in our Ayacucho collection for years. Its exterior is made of recycled Repreve fabric, made from PET bottles and doesn't contain any BPA. The fabric feels soft and supple to wear and is temperature-regulating. The jacket also has a 100% PFC-free water-repellent finish.
It has handwarmer pockets that can be closed with a zip and a fixed, adjustable hood. The main zip is covered by a storm flap and the elastic cuffs ensure a comfortable closure around the wrists, preventing wind and rain from getting inside. One of the jacket pockets also acts as a pouch, and when the jacket is packed away, it can easily be carried by its elastic strap. The Stowaway is ideal for carrying in your backpack or case, so that you are always protected if you are caught out by rain or storms.
Cotswold Outdoor works together with Solid, a private foundation that sets up projects to combat global poverty. Since 2000, Solid, 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.
