The Zubron Jacket is a synthetic insulation jacket – developed to keep you warm and moving on those slightly colder days. This technical and nicely styled garment is loaded with cool and technical features. The hood is grown-on to the main body and due to very well positioned seams it has a great fit. Inside the hood there is a secondary elastic mesh and edge binding which is developed to keep the hood fixed to your head. Protection is provided on the shoulder and lower arm using CORDURA® material. The sleeves are finished with soft cuffs for superb comfort. To store necessary items whilst on the move BLACKYAK has built into this product two large front pockets – these are positioned either side of the center front zipper and away from the area where you would have hip fins whilst wearing a backpack. For extra safe storage, inside there is another zip close pocket. The inside neck area is protected with a very large and comfortable brushed jersey material for extra comfort.
Powerful and majestic, the Yak moves continuously up the mountain. Fully loaded with expedition material, these animals are used to strain and hard work. Their robust form has enabled them to survive the ice age, continuing under the most arduous conditions. They live in the Himalayan Mountains. Yak’s also benefit people in many ways. They give wool, milk, and meat. They are perfect for riding or transporting large and heavy loads. It is effectively the Sherpa of Sherpa’s. The best friend of the mountain climber.
