Ilse Jacobsen Rain07 Soft Shell Raincoat
Ilse Jacobsen’s popular and stylish three-quarter length soft shell raincoat – this beautifully tailored coat has a soft feel to the weatherproof fabric and a light fleece backing to add substance without weight. With convenient pockets and a sturdy covered zip, this attractive and well-made raincoat is ideal for spring and autumn activities whatever the weather.
Ilse Jacobsen writes: “Made of breathable soft shell material, this raincoat allows you to move freely in the rain with no sweat. Resisting water pressure up to 5000mm, it can withstand even the hardest torrential downpour. A Teflon Nanotech membrane creates an invisible shield, that will protect you from the elements. Taped seams keeps the wet out, leaving you happy and dry. The 2-way zipper makes it easy for you to ride your bike, without feeling tight in all the wrong places. This is a style for you, whether you prefer biking or golfing, shopping or strolling, it is hard not to get moving in the rain.”
This style is crafted from Ilse Jacobsen’s lovely fleece-backed soft shell fabric. The soft shell fabric is a three-layer composite consisting of a shell fabric over a waterproof and breathable TPU membrane, with a soft fleece on the inside adding comfort and warmth. The fabric features a unique and subtle cylinder print on the surface, which is treated with an Ecorepel © dirt and water repellent surface treatment for added durability and functionality. The Ecorepel © treatment is environmentally sound, being fluorocarbon-free and biodegradeable. Through highly qualified craftsmanship, all seams are sealed with matching tape, the fabric is OEKO-TEX 100 certified and has become iconic for the Ilse Jacobsen rainwear selection.
TPU, or thermoplastic polyurethane, is both waterproof and breathable due to its contruction with micropores; the pores are small enough to keep water droplets out, but large enough to allow body moisture to evaporate away.
The style features square shoulders and zips on the cuffs, and is tailored at the waist with a pleated back hem. We find the fit is fairly snug for the size – bearing in mind this is well tailored, if you are between sizes or want to layer underneath for the winter, we suggest going up a size.
