Simple doesn’t have to mean basic. Light, packable and reliable, with a fully adjustable hood, the Atalanta allows you to get your head down and crack on, whatever the weather throws at you
With 10K/10K (HH/MVTR) performance for waterproofing and breathability, the Atalanta will keep you protected and dry in all but the most extreme of typical British weather conditions. The outer fabric is a durable 50D ripstop nylon (made from 100% recycled polyester) to withstand all manner of outdoor scuffs and scrapes. And it's treated with an environmentally friendly PFC-free water repellent.
The Atalanta uses a lightweight 2.5 layer construction. This half layer is a super-thin protective print that reduces weight whilst still protecting your waterproof membrane from wear. This also makes the fabric nice and flexible for moving in and stashing away easily in packs.
The Atalanta’s relaxed fit leaves plenty of space for you to layer it over a fleece or base layer, and room to move whatever the activity. It really is the Swiss Army knife of waterproofs, equally at home strolling up fells, riding churned up bridleways or wrestling tents up in a downpour.
When you're working up a sweat on steeper inclines, the mesh-lined pockets can dump extra heat by doubling-up as vents. A fully adjustable hood can be cinched right in during a gale or rolled away when the clouds clear and the cuffs are velcro-adjustable. To finish it off, a double storm flap stops water squeezing inside in during a downpour.

Caring For Your DWR
To keep your jacket’s durable water repellent (DWR) treatment in tip-top condition, wash it regularly in pure soap or a specialist cleaner. You may also need to refresh the treatment about once or twice a year (depending on usage) using a reproofer. Using a spray-on reproofer maintains your jacket's wicking ability.
Wash on a delicate cycle at 30˚C or hand wash with lukewarm water. Use a technical wash product (like Nikwax Tech Wash or Grangers Performance Wash) or pure soap. DO NOT use detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners. Rinse thoroughly in clean water. Line dry or tumble dry on low heat. You can also use a cool iron to reactivate the DWR.

How It Is Made
The Argonaut uses a completely PFC-free DWR treatment on its outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment. We don't like the sound of that andwe're one of the first outdoor brands in the world to eliminate them from our range.
The Argonauts uses a 100% recycled nylon outer fabric, made from post-industrial sources. This uses any leftover stuff from nylon production and fabric scraps from the cutting process and remakes it into brand new nylon fabric!

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
