The Valparola is a practical and versatile jacket with great features enabling the wearer to use it for high aerobic activities in the cooler months. The knitted jersey face fabric is very stretchy and the main body of the jacket has Windstopper softshell incorporated, so you stay dry, breathable and the wind chill factor is kept well down. The hood gives excellent coverage with a nice high collar when zipped up fully. Other great features to this softshell are the thumb loops which keep hands nice and toasty and under arm zips for extra ventilation when working hard. Three zipped pockets for essentials complete the look of this technical styled, women specific softshell.
