This outdoor puffy jacket isn’t just weather-proof, it’s fireproof too!

Most weatherproof jackets fail to consider the one element that’s often key to the outdoor experience… fire. Imagine this – you’re outdoors on a trek, and you’ve made it to your campsite. Craving some food or even a coffee, you build yourself a campfire, and a rogue spark or ember flies into the air, making it onto the sleeve of your jacket. You immediately brush it off, but it does manage to burn a small hole through the outer fabric of your jacket, not just ruining it aesthetically, but also compromising its ability to keep you protected in the rain or bad weather.

Being campfire-proof is arguably as integral to outdoor apparel as is being weatherproof, and that’s what the Trekka Element Jacket promises. Designed like any high-performance outdoor-wear, the Elements Jacket is waterproof, windproof, warm, breathable, and moisture-wicking, but the fact that it’s also fire-resistant gives it an edge of superiority. The outer layer of the jacket is outfitted with laminated Nomex® fabric, a fire-resistant, tear-resistant, and waterproof fabric that’s been used on everything from the Mars Rover to Flight Suits, and from firefighting gear to industrial apparel. The special Nomex® outer fabric gives the Elements Jacket the protective layering it needs, shielding you not just from bad weather and rough terrain, but giving you a jacket that won’t burn or melt when you try to start a campfire or toast a s’more! While the Nomex® fabric protects you from the outer elements, the jacket’s Polartec® Power Fill™ insulation keeps you warm and protected on the inside. A premium insulation material exclusively from PCR (post-consumer recycled) materials like plastic water bottles, the insulation provides greater warmth retention in colder conditions, without added weight or bulk. It’s also cruelty-free (as opposed to down), and is naturally hydrophobic, making it quick-drying.

Its innovative materials aside, the Trekka Elements jacket also boasts of a design that’s arguably perfect for the outdoors. The jacket is designed with a 4-way stretch for flexibility and sports an athletic fit that contours to the shape of your body, so you look great outdoors. 8 pockets give you ample space to stash your belongings so you don’t need to carry your backpack everywhere. Microfleece-lined hip pockets keep your hands warm in the cold, while YKK-lined chest pockets on the inside and the outside let you carry EDC or travel essentials, accessing them in a heartbeat. Moreover, the Essentials Jacket even comes with its own stash-and-go pocket that’s large enough to carry a water bottle or an umbrella with you. Like most good jackets, the Elements also comes with a waist drawcord and a 3-panel hood that provides a large head-covering, protecting your face in the rain. Available in multiple colors, the jackets come in both men and women variants across a wide variety of sizes. They also ship as early as February 2021, which should hopefully mark the rollout of vaccines and the official end of the pandemic, so you can travel outdoors with your family once again and crack open a fizzy one while bonding over a campfire!

Trekka Element – A Jacket For All The Elements

The Trekka Element is a minimal puffy jacket that is fire resistant, waterproof, wind-proof, and tear-proof.

Fire Resistant – An outdoor jacket needs to be as light and breathable as possible, even campfire-proof ones. They worked with fabric manufacturers to develop a lightweight laminated Nomex® fabric that is fire resistant and waterproof. Nomex® is a naturally fire resistant fiber that is used on everything from the Mars Rover to Flight Suits, from firefighting gear to industrial apparel that is now making its way to the outdoor industry.

Tear-proof – Not only is their Nomex® fabric fire resistant and waterproof, but as Kevlar®’s little brother, Nomex® is as strong as it is comfortable.

Water-proof – Most puffy jackets claim to be waterproof by applying a durable water repellency (DWR) coating that lets water bead up and run off the jacket. The Trekka Element jacket goes a step further and used it for their exterior material along with a 3 layer naturally waterproof and breathable fabric that is designed up to a 10-meter water column. That is the quality of waterproof in most $200+ rain shells.

Wind-proof – Most jackets on the market are wind resistant which means that they block some of the wind, but not all… Trekka’s Element jacket blocks ALL the wind – keeping you warmer.

Panel Construction – Most insulated puffy jackets use a baffled design. They do this because their insulation is loose and they have to keep it in place. This reduces the warmth and let’s be honest, it doesn’t look good.

They went with a structured insulation which allows them to design the jacket using large panels. This creates uniform insulation coverage – reducing cold spots & increasing warmth.

Polartec® Power Fill™ –  A premium insulation made from 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content. This proprietary insulation provides greater warmth retention in colder conditions, without added weight or bulk– ideal for a variety of activities where body heat can’t ensure proper warmth. Polartec® Power Fill™ is a soft and pliable matrix of polyester fibers engineered with a distinct geometric shape.

Breathable – Even though this jacket doesn’t let water in, it will let water out. Thanks to a 3 layer outer fabric that is laminated with a membrane that is permeated with tiny holes that are big enough to let water vapor from your body out, but small enough to keep the water droplets out.

8 Great Pockets – The Element comes with eight hidden pockets – four outside and four inside. The four exterior pockets are on either side of the chest and waist and zippered with premium YKK zippers. Two of the interior pockets are staggered in-between the exterior pocket pairs to prevent bulky spots.

Dual Zippered Chest Pockets – Most companies out there only give you one chest pocket. They gave you 4, and there is a reason for that. Whether you’re left or right handed you will find a pocket placement that is natural for you. Exterior pockets are great if you want to put something in your pocket without unzipping the jacket letting out precious heat.

Interior Stash-And-Go Pockets – Sometimes you just need to quickly throw some stuff in pockets and get moving.
