Stepping up a Gear – u-power’s Impact Gear Jacket

Published:  03 February, 2016

The Impact Gear warm, waterproof and windproof jacket is one of u-power’s most advanced and Innovative outdoor jackets, providing total protection from the elements in great style.

Designed with u-power’s trademark Italian flair, the Gear is ideal for those who need to stay dry and warm whilst working outside. Not only does this hard-wearing jacket keep the wearer warm and cosy, it is fully water- and windproof and also highly breathable, ensuring all-day comfort in all conditions.

u-power has thought of everything in the design of its new Impact Gear jacket. Packed with the latest hi-tech features, the Gear sports a host of cleverly-designed fully waterproof pockets for handy storage and ease of access to laser gauges, torches, maps and small tools, or just about anything that is needed on the job.

There is an internal tablet pocket and a media pocket for the mobile phone with a Free Sound access point for headphones and Besafe technology, which prevents more than 90% of radio waves being transmitted to the body. Small, but important, features such as the adjustable anti-tangle drawstrings inside the internal pockets are extra thoughtful touches in the Gear.

Made from PU-coated polyester and ripstop to prevent pulls and tears on the material, the Gear is lined with polyester microfleece for added warmth. All seams are fully taped to prevent water ingress, while the jacket has full front closure with a waterproof zip and an adjustable hood and cuffs.

Available in 4 colours and a range of sizes from XS to 4XL, the unisex Gear Jacket represents excellent value and delivers unbeatable protection.
