The classic waterproof breathable jacket if you want one shell for all your outdoor activities, to keep you comfortable and dry without weighing you down. Just the features you need and none of the ones you don’t.

'Balance is a near flawless lightweight all rounder. Sub-300g weight, very breathable, good hood and thorough all-round design and build quality.' Outdoors Magic

Balance uses a 3L fabric with special wicking knit backer to make it more comfortable next to the skin, a PU membrane for high waterproof breathable performance, and a durable nylon face fabric. It gives a good balance of weight, durability and performance.

What's very special about this jacket is the technical performance of the fabric. The waterproof capability of our fabric measures 20,000 HH and the breathability scores 30,000 g/sqm/24hrs MVTR. Check out how the breathability and waterproof capability of our fabrics compares with other brands and you will see just how good our fabrics are.

So you get two map sized hand pockets (positioned out of the way of your rucksack hip belt or harness waistband) which double as vents for your core with their part mesh lining. A fully adjustable hood and hem, water resistant zips and internal zip flap and chin guard allow you to batten down the hatches when it’s foul out. The cuffs are designed to be super comfortable with a combination of VELCRO® Brand and elastic, which make them glove friendly but also easy to push up your arms to cool off if need be. We’ve been disciplined about the features, in order to maintain a respectably light weight but durable jacket that gives you what you need and nothing you don’t.

Sustainability

The chemical finish that keeps water beading off your waterproof jacket has changed. As with all waterproofs from responsible outdoor brands, our waterproof jackets meet international environmental standards and require occasional washing with a technical wash to maintain their high breathability. This wasn’t always the case. Years ago, waterproof jackets were treated with chemicals that had toxic by-products that lingered in the environment for generations. Those old chemicals needed little maintenance, whereas modern waterproofs need regular washing. We fully support this change. In fact, we quite like the idea of taking time to look after our kit so that it lasts a long time. We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of all our products –in fact it’s in our DNA: we can’t imagine ever doing anything else. We always review the materials we use, manufacturing methods and our own consumption of resources. We do the research, make informed decisions, and choose the best option available to us.
