New from Elka: this funky softshell jacket for girls and boys up to age 12 years is perfect for the British climate! It is fully breathable (about 3 times as much as a gore-tex hardshell jacket), windproof and highly water resistant. Whilst less waterproof than a rain coat in PU, it's still well able to withstand light rain or heavy snow fall. The cosy microfleece lining traps pockets of air and keeps the wearer warm even in cold temperatures, without the need for thick layers underneath. The stretchy material ensures that it follows the wearer's movements, while funky thumb grips hold the sleeves comfortably in place, making this an ideal garment for active play and for pursuits such as ball games, cycling, hiking and sailing.
A softshell jacket is designed to be close-fitting, moulding itself to the wearer's body, for maximum warmth in a light material.This jacket is sized on the small side, and we recommend buying at least one size up in order to get several seasons' wear out of an extremely durable garment.
