Kutana Soft Shell Jacket Overview
When navigating dense brush, rocky terrain, and varied weather conditions, your outer layer needs to be both tough and versatile. A durability-focused soft shell option for KUIU’s layering system, this jacket is built with Toray’s stretch nylons to keep you mobile while providing increased environmental protection. Most stretch nylons are based on spandex, which absorbs water and breaks down over time, while Toray stretch nylons gain stretch from the shape of the fiber and the fabric structure, eliminating spandex for better performance and life expectancy. The body and arm tops are constructed from a 2-way-stretch 70/80 Denier ripstop nylon, while the side panels, underarms, and hood feature a 4-way-stretch Primeflex Nylon. Combined with a fleece backing, this panelized design is our lightest-weight full-featured soft shell, providing durability in high wear areas, with unrestricted range of motion where it’s most important. A longer-lasting K-DWR treatment delivers superior moisture protection, making it a crucial part of your layering system for those rough hunts.
