Summer’s here, and the weather is just fine... But it may well be that you have decided to explore Iceland or Norway (or simply Brittany!) – where, if you’ve done some basic prep, you know you’ll have a swell time but also get wet – and often. If you’ve planned some peak excursions, the message can never be too clear: even when fine weather is guaranteed, you need to be equipped. In other words: even in summer, you’re best packing a protective jacket to shadow you during your activities – even when the sun has moved on. After all, like it or not, winter won’t stay away forever!
At Eider, many of our jackets are designed with a Defender® membrane. Derived from an exclusive Eider technology, the Defender® is a high-performance microporous membrane: when bonded to a garment’s outer, it give its user a guarantee of waterproofness, breathability and a barrier against the wind, for maximum protection.The Defender® design concept? It’s a fabric with tiny pores that are small enough not to let water or air in, but large enough to let the water vapor produced by the body during outdoor activities escape outward. We didn’t dare say “magical”, but it’s a terrific idea, no?
