Challenge 2.0 is the improved version of the optimal watersed cross -country jacket for the active skier. Perfected for training out on cold winter days. Consisting of wind and water repellent 3-layer softshell upgraded with PU diaphragm, designed to keep moisture out, while transporting moisture from the inside, so the jacket both dries quickly and breathes well through high intensity workouts. Designed with padding on the most exposed chest area when it comes to cold, this jacket keeps you warm on even the coldest days. The padding is designed to encapsure moisture, with a laminated front that ensures that the moisture does not absorb and freezes in the garment. The strategically placed elastic material in the back and under the arms ensures movement and ventilation. Rudolf Bionic Finish® ECO technology on the surface of the fabric further assures that light rain and sleet bangs off, while safeguarding good breathability. Insulated with Thermore® Ecodown, which consists solely of recycled fibers from PET bottles, this jacket provides heat with improved durability throughout the life of the garment, while at the same time constituting a lower environmental impact. Designed as part of a set, you can combine this jacket with Pants Challenge 2.0 to complete the perfect outfit for cold days. This unique padded jacket has molded sleeves, tension cord in life and elastic cuffs for optimal fit. Other attributes include YKK® zippers & fleece lining in the throat for extra heat.
