Defiant 4-Way Stretch non-porous laminate/Weight: 375g/Zip rear and waterproof zipped chest pocket/Waterproof front and pit zips/Reflective details/Sugoi 00800-4321-3350, www.sugoi.com.
Sugoi concentrate on performance tailoring with a full stretch membrane. This allows a scooped tail free of the customary hem adjustment as it hugs to fit, a technique also used at the trademark angled cuffs. Whilst the slightly rubbery inner is clammy against bare flesh, with a sensible layering system, taped and proofed breathability is maintained whilst ‘Smart Seams’ work around abrasion hotspots.
