Formation 3L Shell Jacket | Men's

Colour: Black

High-spec hardshell for mountain missions

This jacket is built for anyone who’s ever wondered why most technical waterproof shells feel stiff, noisy and cold. Anyone who has ever thought to themselves: “Why don’t the fabrics stretch, like the rest of my layers? Why does the so-called ‘durable’ water repellent finish seem to fail after a few minutes in the rain? Why do waterproof membranes contain so many harmful chemicals? And if a zipper breaks, why can’t I repair it without replacing the entire jacket?” All good questions. Maybe you’ve asked a few of these yourself. Well, so did Artilect – and not finding the answers they wanted, they designed their own solution. Perhaps the most technically advanced and innovative waterproof jacket on the market, the Formation 3L Shell is a premium piece of outerwear for serious outdoor use, designed for the most demanding climbers and mountaineers

    • Sustainability through Longevity - ARTILECT's driving purpose is to deliver an unmatched performance experience. They are guided by their belief in building products of exceptional quality, value, and long-term durability. They believe that performance and sustainability are not mutually exclusive, and through innovation and technology, can complement each other.
  • Hailing from Boulder, Colorado, Artilect is a brand moulded by its environment. Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, their gear is built to keep you warmer, drier and more comfortable than anything else out there, even in the fiercest wind, cold and rain.

    To do this, they’ve drawn on cutting-edge technologies from the leading suppliers of performance fabrics, insulation and components, creating truly technical, all-weather apparel. This includes world firsts like particle gold bonded down fill, YKK Touchlink zips and ultra-durable water repellent finishes. This unrelenting focus on innovation is combined with decades of experience in the outdoor and snowsports world. Essentially, they’ve taken the best of the old and blended it with the best of the new.

    Sustainability is also at the heart of the brand. They use recycled fabrics alongside technical membranes and finishes that are free form harmful chemistry. But more than that, the range is built with superior long-term durability and repairability and mind. In essence? They create products that last, from quality materials that minimise environmental impacts. As a result, Artilect systems maximise moisture management, thermoregulation, freedom of movement, comfort and swagger – from the peaks to the streets.
