The V Icon is the technical beast of the Trilogy Series with abrasion resistance, a light weight and a full pack of functions. The GORE-TEX Pro Astree 3L shell fabric uses a revolutionary multi-layer membrane system comprising a single microstructure. The GORE-TEX PTFE membrane is laminated between a durable, extremely tough outer and a ripstop polyamide inner that is also very robust. The result: superior strength and accelerated breathability to deliver solid, durable protection. It is totally windproof and more breathable than previous constructions, while the jacket's design allows to gauge inside air circulation with underarm vents. The Aquaguard zippers keep water outside of your jacket and the drainage system at the chest pockets assures you won't be surprised with wet gloves or a soaked map and heavy, water-filled pockets.
