Description

The purpose of these jackets is to ensure warmth and support for the children against the cold temperatures of Peru.
A great jacket is the most efficient way to insulate the body from temperature extremes and stop children with limited clothing & basic health necessities from suffering through low blood circulation to certain parts of their bodies.

Each and every one of these Jackets is made individually for you by our Local Peruvian manufacturing partner Sportswear Cusco.  Cusco’s owner Lee Angelo Calsin takes great pride in working with the all Peruvian staff in making every piece to their highest standards.  His relationship with JFC allows them to grow the business and support their local community and all the families connected to it.   Our vision is to equip and train the locals so that they can build the structure to support the children and their business, which will be self-sustaining and independent.

 

Features


Outer Material: 
Taslan

    • Taslan is a modern, high-tech, woven polyester fabric. It’s strong, durable, and ideal for any gear you want to use every day of the week.
    • It’s also very quick drying and able to wick moisture away from the body quickly and efficiently, so you don’t get all sweaty. And because it dries so quickly (it doesn’t hold the water like cotton), you’re not left standing in cold, clammy clothes when you stop moving.

Lining Material:  Andean Fleece

    • Andean Fleece (Spun Alpaca Wool) has extraordinary thermoregulatory properties, making it an ideal insulator.  Its thermoregulatory properties mean that it keeps you warm in winter but also protects you from the heat in summer and it’s even UV resistant.
    • Brilliant at wicking moisture away from the body, avoiding cooling when you are sweating.
    • Naturally anti-microbial, anti-fungal & is also dust mite resistant!
    • Alpaca wool products require no harmful chemicals to make so it’s a win for the environment too.

Water Resistant: DWR

    • Our jackets use a DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish which repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times.

Pockets: 3

    • Two secure handwarmer pockets have zippers and garage hoods.
      Internal zippered chest pocket converts to stuff sack with a carabiner clip-in loop.

Cuffs:

    • Comfortable nylon-bound elastic cuffs seal in warmth.
