Red_Buck_Jacket_ThumbThe Red Buck waterproof jacket is new to Woolrich’s 2011 spring line. It boasts multi-season adaptability whether it’s spring showers, summer monsoons or blustery fall conditions.

The jacket is designed with a single ply waterproof rip-stop nylon fabric that insulates for comfort and keeps the user dry. Additional waterproof plates around zippers, seams and ventilation areas keep it mindful to impact zones.

Three mesh-lined zippered pockets allows for “stuff and go” essentials - keys, glasses, ID and trail fuel. Jam the Red Buck in the attached stuff pocket for easy transport and convenient pack storage. The jacket is machine washable and quickly air dries after a day in a mud-filled spring downpour.

A full zipper adorns the front of the Red Buck jacket and armpit ventilation zips allow you to adjust your body temperature by fine tuning air-flow.

The Woolrich Red Buck jacket touts adjustable features for a proper fit. Velcro straps on the wrist and pull cords for the waist and head keep the jacket cozy in strong winds.

The jacket’s strength is its versatility. Boating in Pacific NW lake winds, walking about town in forty-four degree rain, or a trail run or hike under a cloudburst, the Red Buck is lightweight and keeps the wet on the outside – where it belongs.
