The summer jacket is a paradoxical concept. The hotter it gets the less you want to wear. But from sunshine to sunshower it's sometimes better to cover up than strip down.

We think of the Ultralight FreeShell as an anti-layer. The easier it is to not wear, the more useful it is. The jacket packs into its rear pocket, and is easy to carry thanks to the integrated adjustable shoulder strap. It's not quite a bag but there is room left over to carry your sunglasses or notebook around.

A summer jacket needs to be lightweight and comfortable while providing real protection from the sun. Our 145gsm Ultralight Cloth is rated with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+, the highest rating possible, and prevents over 99% of UV radiation from reaching your skin.

The Swiss woven fabric also features a doubleweave construction. The loose inner face creates a 3D grid that minimizes skin contact (similar to a seersucker) to maximize comfort. The Nanosphere® treatment means it dries quickly, can repel light rain (but not major thundershowers unfortunately) and stays clean longer. As close to the perfect summer anti-layer as we can get. The Ultralight Freeshell.
Ultralight Logo
Ultralight Cloth is soft and flexible with an elegant drape. Durable for its weight (145gsm) and rated UPF 50+, it's meant to handle the summer with ease.

The Ultralight Cloth is a yarn-dyed doublewoven intimate blend of various nylons. The micro-nylon fibers create a soft loose inner weave that helps pull moisture from the skin, while slightly thicker nylon is tightly woven on the outside to give it a degree of water resistance. The self-cleaning NanoSphere® treatment adds in some wine, beer and iced coffee resistance. A four-way stretch means you'll move with a breezy freedom all across a beautiful summer.

We wanted to see how this fabric handles sunlight, specifically UV radiation, so we sent it out for testing. The results show that a single layer of Ultralight Cloth blocks the transmittance of over 99% of UV radiation, giving the Ultralight Cloth an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 50+, the highest rating possible.
