Zinc shell Jacket​​​​

A jacket designed for an active life

In 2020, Fristads ventured into the world of outdoor life, with a collection of clothes designed for active days spent under the open skies.
​​​​​​​
Now, we have completed our original range of trousers, shorts, hoodie and lightweight jacket with a shell jacket that protects you even during harsh conditions. Say hello to Zinc Shell Jacket, a waterproof and windproof jacket made entirely of recycled materials. A jacket that allows you to explore the outdoors while treading lightly on the planet.

Match with our quilted jacket

Zinc Shell Jacket is designed to be worn as the third, outer layer when you need extra protection against the weather. Combine it with our lightweight, quilted Oxygen PrimaLoft® jacket for soft and warm comfort year-round or wear it with a hoodie or sweatshirt on warmer days.

A sustainable choice

Most of the jacket is made of polyester from recycled PET bottles to decrease its environmental footprint. Using recycled polyester saves energy and water in the production compared to virgin polyester, as well as reduces the emissions of greenhouse gases. The material is dyed using a method that requires 85 percent less water than normal, since it adds the colour to the yarn rather than the finished fabric. Zinc Shell Jacket is also fluorocarbon free and OEKO-TEX® certified, a leading label that means the fabric is free from harmful substances and chemicals.

Truly weatherproof

With a waterpillar of over 10.000 mm, taped seams and water-repellent zippers from YKK, this jacket was developed to accompany you wherever you go. Not only does the wind and waterproof shell keep the weather out, but the highly breathable fabric also allows moisture to escape, keeping you dry and comfortable even during intense physical activity.
