Windstopper® Climashield® Bomber Jacket
TypeWR Gen.1.0 StyleInsulator

Description
The return of the ACRONYM® insulated jacket. J50-WS is a lightweight, exceedingly comfortable envelope of warmth and well being. The outstanding properties of CLIMASHIELD® insulation and WINDSTOPPER® shell make it formidable as both a component piece or a jacket on its own.
The result of some 25 years of manufacturing experience, Climashield® is the lightest weight and most thermally efficient continuous filament insulation available. Combined with 2 layer Gore Windstopper®, the results are incredibly soft, warm, light, and protective. Effortless and effective.
