The Gravit is a softshell jacket, so it’s not completely waterproof, but it has a lot of protection, additional breathability and wicking qualities. The black colourway doesn’t scream ‘wear me’, but when you pull it on it feels very special. The lightweight fabric is stretchy and comfortable to wear – it allows the shape to be neat without being tight, because you don’t need any extra room for movement.
It’s a mix of good fabric and well-executed design with articulated sleeves, a roll-away hood and venting through the front pockets. The Gravit is as comfortable as a jersey, with benefits. This is stealth styling at its best, and it complies with the Bluesign standard for eco manufacturing.
