Also new is a seamless shoulder construction and central torso area to create maximum comfort when worn with a light backpack.
In line with all of GORE’s SHAKEDRY™ garments, the jacket is totally waterproof, extremely breathable, lightweight and ultra packable – stowing away into the front chest pocket. Available in two colourways; Pacific Blue and Black Lava Grey, the GORE® R7 GTX SHAKEDRY™
Trail Hooded Jacket includes stretchable inserts at the cuffs to allow easy use of a GPS watch, a full length zipper with tags for easy opening and reflective details on all sides for 360 degree visibility.

Now abrasion and tear resistant, this has to be one of the most functional jackets out there. Being waterproof, lightweight, breathable, packable and visible – it’s become my go-to jacket for any kind of outdoor adventure.”
