Description

Designed for ultra mountain treks, trail runs and mountain marathons, the Further Faster Neo Jacket is built for optimum speed over long distances. NeoShell® fabric is so breathable that under heavy exertion it really maximises convection of moisture vapour from the inside to the outside, ensuring the wearer stays as dry as today’s technology will allow.
