Choosing the perfect jacket for all conditions is now easier than ever, thanks to Henri-Lloyd’s Smart-Therm mid-layer jacket. The perfect all-rounder for everyday use, this jacket has been designed to provide targeted warmth, wicking and ventilation by using advanced body mapping that mirrors how the body performs.
Available in sizes XS to XXL, this lightweight and highly breathable jacket is made from Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treated PFC-free recycled nylon. Ideal as an outer jacket or to wear under a shell jacket, it is designed to keep you dry and comfortable by transporting vapours and moisture, and it retains heat even when wet. Perfect for offshore use as a high performance mid-layer or onshore as the go-to jacket for a range of outdoor pursuits – walking, hiking, riding.
Key to its success is the Y-panel design and strategically positioned wadding. Developed by Henri-Lloyd’s designers using body heat mapping, the Smart-Therm jacket is designed to provide insulation where the body needs it most, around your chest, core, and sides of the back protecting the kidneys. Panels made from 5% elastane provide stretch and movement across the centre of the back, and lighter weight under arm and side panels reduce bulk and padding in areas that are warmer and traditionally would tend to sweat more, needing heat to exit the body. This sophisticated design prevents sweat condensation and superchilling, ensuring the wearer remains warm, dry and comfortable no matter the conditions or how strenuous or sedentary the activity.
The Smart-Therm jacket is super lightweight and its slimline faux down wadding is made from 100% recycled polyester which is designed to withstand repeated packing and unpacking. It features zip side pockets and Henri-Lloyd branded stretch binding at the cuffs and jacket hem, helping to trap warm air inside the jacket, against the body. There are reflective strips at the centre back and on the cuff for safety. The outer fabric is wind-resistant, further enhanced by an inner zip storm flap.
The dropped collar allows for a snug fit around the neckline, limiting cooler air entering the jacket and also avoids collision with jacket collars for an extremely comfortable fit.
The Smart-Therm jacket is available in navy blue and retails at £165 with the gilet available for £135. For details of stockists or to purchase online visit www.henrilloyd.com
