The ultra-lightweight Anabatic MK. II shell from newish U.K.-based label Finisterre makes an attractive example of the brand's forward-thinking approach. Committed to product, people and the environment, Finisterre's outdoor gear not only looks and feels great but also keeps sustainability at the forefront—a notion that has earned them several awards, including The Times' Eco Hero Award.
The 100% recyclable MK. II (a British first) has a clean aesthetic, keeping the style of an earlier Finisterre model intact and adding increased technical functionality. Waterproof and helmet compatible, the Portuguese-made jacket uses a hydrophilic membrane fabric called C-Shell (a material that's exclusive to the brand) for the utmost in breathability and performance. Thanks to a breakthrough in membrane technology, the ergonomically-cut jacket is now even more impervious to water while weighing under a pound.
The Anabatic MK II sells from Finisterre's online shop for £180.
