Which softshell should you choose: 2 or 3 layers?

Softshells are essential items for professionals and athletes, especially those who are regularly outdoors. 2 or 3 layers? That's the age-old question! Fortunately, at KARIBAN BRANDS, we've explained everything to help you find the jacket that best suits your needs and, above all, your desires.

In bad weather and cold temperatures, athletes and professionals need versatile jackets that meet many technical criteria. The softshell jacket is ideal, here’s why.

Our softshells are like soft shields, made up of 2 or 3 synthetic fibre membranes that insulate against the cold and rain, while being breathable.

They are very hard-wearing and have with a water-repellent or waterproof coating to protect you against light or heavy rain, allowing you to be active outdoors while remaining comfortable in difficult winter conditions. They replace the second or third layers of clothing usually worn in winter.

The windbreaking outer membrane protects against the cold while the microfleece inner retains body heat.

Choose technical pieces, designed to keep you warm and dry without compromising on style. We offer a wide range of softshells that can be customised and adapted for leisure or work. The printing area of our softshells allows a great deal of freedom of expression and an ideal way to highlight a logo or other message.
