Cornwall-based ethical clothing company Finisterre has just released a new line of jackets for the autumn/winter season.
They’re a surf-inspired company, indeed they surf regularly the waves near their headquarters in St Agnes, but their range of environmentally low-impact yet high-tech clothing will appeal to anyone into braving the elements, including us mountain bikers.
First things first, you won’t be wearing these on the mountain bike. They’re not designed for actually riding. But for the drive to the trail centre, keeping you warm after a ride or in-between laps of a 24-hour race, their new autumn/winter jackets are just the ticket.
We’ve just been sent these pictures of the new range to take a squizz at. Let’s dive in for a look. Its eco-friendly insulated jackets have been updated, with a Primaloft Eco filling providing high levels of warmth on cold days despite weighing very little.
There are three new colours (red, white and black) to choose from, and durability has been addressed in key areas so they stand up to plenty of hard wearing. On the outside a wind and waterproof Ripstop shell, made from recycled and recyclable polyester, has a sheen that offers the jackets a distinctive look. Each jacket comes with a lifetime guarantee.
You can find these high quality materials and attention to design in the top-end £185 Sastruga now in its third incarnation, and is a lightweight insulated hooded jacket with storm cuffs and a poppered pack-away hood. Prices start a bit lower with the stylish £135 Etobicoke, and that’s joined by the sleeveless £95 Bise.
The Sastruga is available in a women’s version for £165, alongside the £185 Popistral and women’s Bise, £95.
Style, eco-friendly, insulation against the British winter, what more could you want. Pop over to www.finisterreuk.com to take a closer look.
