A great new jacket has released from the Isaora Fall/Winter 2012 Collection – the Tech 3L Splatter Riding Shell. Bringing together the most technical fabrics and advanced technology, the shell jacket will definitely keep you warm and dry this winter.

“Constructed in Portugal, this jacket is crafted from a 3-layer, Japanese hard-shell composite that is recognized for its peerless water resistance and breathability. The body is fully seam-sealed with light, 18mm technical tape that affords the piece a quieter, less “crunchy” profile while maintaining top-tier weatherproofing. A strip of Silicon grip lining around the circumference of the jacket’s powder skirt keeps everything locked in place in deep powder and park days alike. Up top, the three-way adjustable hood and chest panel are now secured with gusseted fabrics to keep everything extra compact. This frame is finished with a jacket-to-pant snap/zipped button system that is compatible with our Tech 3L Riding Pants.

The pockets and primary zips on this season’s 3L have been overhauled as well. Immediately noticeable are two micro-fleece lined front pockets. Secured with YKK VT-9 waterproof zips, these main pockets are fast-access storage systems that don’t compromise when it comes to keeping your effects dry. In case that wasn’t enough, we threw in an inner chest pocket with an emergency whistle affixed to it. Two longitudinal air vents are now located closer to your core and are fitted with YKK Aquaguard zips that are designed to not catch on the vents’ mesh filters.”

As you can see, in terms of fabrics and components used, Isaora only went with the best. Now, what we find most interesting is the addition of the hand splattered paint. 60 jackets have been hand-painted using a free-splatter brush technique at Isaora studios, making the outerwear even more unique.

You can buy the jacket now from Isaora and SlamJam for 649 USD.
