With classic styling, there is so much more to this lightweight women’s outdoor & safari jacket than meets the eye. Fleece-lined and warm, it also offers insect defence – perfect for Africa and the outdoors.
A warm layer is an outdoor & safari essential. It gets cold at first light, after dark, during winter, and by virtue of altitude in certain areas. This means exploring on game drives or out on short bush walks or full walking safaris can be a chilly affair. Lightweight and warm, you have every reason to pack this outdoor & safari jacket for your next trip to Africa or adventure outdoors.
This simple safari-styled jacket combines two fabrics to be the best warm layer you can pack for any outdoor adventure. The torso is lined with premium, luxurious micro-fleece to keep you cosy from your core, while the outer layer does a different kind of work.
The outer layer is made from our latest BUGTech™ anti-insect fabric. Our softest BUGTech™ yet, it has an extraordinarily soft hand feel for a technical fabric. It also has micro-ripstop for strength. Expedition and safari tested, this fabric keeps the bugs at bay while offering lab-tested UPF50+ sun protection and moisture wicking. It also provides quick-release from wrinkles so you can unpack and go, an anti-microbial finish for long-lasting freshness, and quick dry properties for your travel convenience.
When trying to pack light for outdoor, safari, and general travels, a warm layer is often the heaviest, bulkiest item in your suitcase. That is not the case with this outdoor & safari jacket. This fleece-lined and warm jacket is compact and lightweight, making it the ideal solution for outdoor & safari and minimalist travel.
Back home, you will love wearing this button-down jacket for all outdoor pursuits. From walks in the country and picnics in the park to fishing, hiking, and adventure travel, this lightweight jacket is an easy choice for warmth, style, and practicality.
BUGTech™: it's in the fabric of who we are
Anti-insect clothing very rarely offers effective wicking properties, with the fabric trapping heat and sacrificing comfort for insect defence. This was one of the key issues we sought to avoid in developing our BUGTech™ range. We wanted our clients to enjoy the same features and comfort level they had come to expect from our MaraTech™ range with the added advantage of insect defence for their safaris, adventure travels, and outdoor experiences.
• As a result, BUGTech™ has been tested, refined, and re-tested on safari, but also in some rather extreme conditions on expedition around Africa. We are happy to report that the wicking properties of our fabric is unhindered by the anti-insect treatment.
• Apart from our in-house tests, we wanted to offer our clients the added assurance of independent tests. In tests conducted by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), BUGTech™ fabric was proven to offer defence against most biting insects. We are unaware of any other manufacturer willing to publish their results.
• The active ingredient in our BUGTech™ fabric is permethrin which is used at the ultra low dosage of 500ppm. Permethrin is a man-made version of a natural insect repellent found in certain Chrysanthemum plants. BUGTech™ utilises a proprietary permethrin formula to provide effective, odourless insect defence.
• BUGTech™ is effective against most biting insects.

Three easy steps to ordering the right size:
You will need the following items:
• Measuring tape
• A flat surface (such as a table or counter)
• A notepad and pen
• An item of clothing from your wardrobe that fits comfortably and is similar to the one you wish to purchase (e.g. if you are looking at buying a collared shirt then use one of your own collared shirts to compare measurements to.)
TIP: If you do not own a similar jacket, then using a collared long sleeve shirt which is a comfortable fit will give you an idea of the size which will fit you the best.
Referring to the images above, place your garment on a flat surface and record the following measurements:
A. 1/2 Bust/Chest: Measure across the front of the shirt from armpit to armpit.
B. Sleeve Overarm: Measure from the end of the cuff to the shoulder seam.
C. Centre Back Length: Measure from the nape of the neck on the back of the shirt to the bottom hem.
Compare your measurements with our size chart and order the size closest to those measurements. Chest/bust is usually the most important measurement if you are in a hurry, but checking all three will make for the most comfortable fit.
TIP: If you do not have a measuring tape, use your credit card. The long side of a credit card measures 8.5cm and the short side is 5.4cm. Simply use the centimetre measurements on our chart and divide by 8.5cm to get an idea of how many credit card lengths equals the measurement you are recording.
