Our goal is simple—to make the best rain jacket on the market. While keeping true to the classic styling of the 60/40 jackets made famous by the outdoorsmen of the 70s, we updated everything possible to the highest standard. In our quest to make a better product, we worked with Polartec® to find the most innovative waterproof fabric available—Polartec® Knit Neoshell®. Equally at home trekking your nearest national park or at altitudes greater than 10,000 ft in Nepal, the Hawkins is designed to keep you dry and stylish for the next handful of decades. Here’s more about what makes the jacket exceptional:
All Weather Protection
What good is a rain jacket if it’s not waterproof? Every seam on the Hawkins is sealed, and ever zipper is waterproof. The adjustable hood stays in place with a back drawstring cinch, and the cuffs can be tightened with articulated snap closures. Built to keep you dry and comfortable in any weather.
NeoShell® represents a breakthrough for waterproof breathable fabrics; there’s nothing like it. With the help of textile science, Polartec has been able to create a fabric that can keep water out while releasing both water vapor and heat. It will keep you dry and regulate your body temperature, making the Hawkins the ideal choice for practically any weather.
With the introduction of a knit-facing, this particular Polartec® Neoshell® is constructed with increased 4-way stretch. The knit-facing is just as durable against abrasion and wear compared to a more traditional hardface outer, but allows for an exceptional range of motion and improved comfort.
