The new Ebbelsen Trek MKII is of the classic Scandinavian field jacket variety, using traditional yet highly functional fabrics to provide robust protection from the elements. It’s designed as a general-purpose outdoor signature jacket and as a functional adventure travel jacket.
It’s made from two-layers of a 100% cotton fabric called Duuton3 which creates a rugged construction and a weather protective system. Made in Switzerland from extra-long staple cotton yarns, the fabric is extremely hard-wearing yet it’s still soft and rustle-free, and it’s woven so tightly that it’s able to protect the wearer from rain and very strong winds.
To give an idea of how the fabric works, if the jacket gets wet then the technical yarns swell, squeezing against each other tightly enough to block up any gaps and prevent moisture from entering, while the double layer construction also keeps the inner layer protected.
