Description

The Pulsar has the protection of a technical waterproof that belies its soft and stretchy fabric. It’s comfort and performance rolled into one light and stuff-able bundle.

  • Waterproof stretch fabric that moves with you
  • A slim fit and cut that’s designed for movement
  • Front kangaroo pocket with mesh vent

Made from premium Japanese 2.5 layer fabric with a soft yet durable ripstop nylon face, the Pulsar balances protection from wind and rain with comfort and stretch for a more active fit designed for moving in. The PU membrane with 20K/20K performance keeps the rain out and is highly breathable. This allows moisture from your body to escape, which means you can comfortably leave it on longer.

Bung it on when you're out for a walk or ride in changeable weather, leave it on to keep the wind off and stuff it into rucksack and bike luggage crevices when the weather clears. It's so light that you'll forget it's there until you need it.

It’s not just about comfort though: the Pulsar is intended for action. The stealthy soft fabric and slimmer fit reduce rustling in strong winds and at high speeds. And the half-zip smock design is more comfortable for hunching over the bars on your bike or running pack straps with a drop hem to cover your bum.

The fully adjustable hood with wired peak will fit snugly over a bike helmet and a drop hem keeps your bum covered. If you overheat, the elasticated Velcro cuffs can be pushed up to your elbows and the kangaroo pocket contains a big mesh vent.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

The better you look after this jacket, the better (and longer) it’ll look after you. Well, when we say ‘look after you’... it’s not gonna make you cups of tea or bring you breakfast in bed, but it will keep you nice n’ dry. And the good news is: it’s dead easy to do.1) After you’ve finished going nice places and doing good things, treat your jacket to a wash at 30°C with either a dedicated Tech Wash (like Grangers and Nikwax) or pure soap. This keeps your jacket breathable by stopping the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating from getting clogged up with dirt and skin oils.

2) If it’s stopped beading (rain soaking in rather than forming droplets), you can reactivate the factory-applied DWR by sticking it in the tumble drier on a low setting or applying a cool iron to it (under a tea towel).

3) To keep your jacket beading, you’ll probably need to top up the DWR once or twice a year using a Grangers or Nikwax re-proofer. You can find out more about why this is important here. If you’re still a bit unsure about washing your jacket, you can also take it/send it to our Ambleside store’s waterproof washing service and we’ll sort it all out for you.

Environmental considerations

The Pulsar uses a completely PFC-free DWR treatment on its outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment. We don't like the sound of that so we've been working hard to get rid of them.
