Wolfskin's Flyweight Jacket bags Outdoor Industry Award
Jul '12
With the highlights of the summer 2013 collection Jack Wolfskin proves once again their drive for innovation in product development. The ultralightweight windproof Trail-Running-jacket Flyweight was awarded one of the coveted Outdoor Industry Award's 2012.

The FLYWEIGHT JACKET MEN/WOMEN is the lightest weight softshell made by Jack Wolfskin. The two-ply FLEX SHIELD SOFTSHELL AIRLITE at 58g/m² weighs only half as much as a sheet of paper, yet maintains every necessary softshell feature:

It is very elastic, wind- and water resistant as well as extremely breathable. Tiny loop spacers on the back create a „microclimate“ next to your skin, provide the minimal in insulation, and thus differentiate the material greatly from traditional wind shells.

Trimmed down to the bare essentials, this softshell can be stowed in a chest pocket or even a hip pocket to carry along anytime. A super lightweight, technical summer softshell that is particularly ideal for running.

Jack Wolfskin is one of the leading providers of functional outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment in Europe  and the largest franchisor in the German specialist sports retail market. Jack Wolfskin products are currently  available in more than 600 franchise stores and at 4,000 points of sale across Europe and Asia. Jack Wolfskin products feature a high degree of functionality, user-friendliness and innovation.
