C.P. COMPANY SOFTSHELL JACKETS - IN DEPTH REVIEW
A CP sofshell jacket is a real eye-catcher and the icon of C.P. Company. The jacket was originally designed by the clothing engineer Massimo Osti for an Italian Rally; the Mille Miglia endurance race. The goal was to design a functional jacket. The designer came up with the idea to integrate the glasses into the jacket. This meant that the hat could be folded over the head and the glasses could be worn over the eyes.
However, the innovative jacket also had to be practical. Therefore, the jacket has been designed with a close attention to the human shape when in a riding position. The jacket therefore had to offer optimal comfort when sitting. That's why C.P. Company gave the jacket a kind of "bulge" in the sleeves and back. As a result, the jacket offers minimal resistance when you sit down and you can move your arms well. Moreover, the jacket does not pinch while sitting. This is of course very unique! The Softshell Goggle jackets from C.P. Company are therefore a true example of craftsmanship.
Ergonomics is the keyword when you talk about a softshell jacket from C.P. Company. For example, when you look at the goggle cap, it is nice to know that the cap has a perfect anatomical fit of the human head. Because of this fit you can perfectly put a helmet over your head when the cords of the hat are tightened. In 2009 the glasses in the hat had a make-over. The glasses are rounder and closer. Visibility has also been improved and has an anti-reflective coating that allows you to use it as sunglasses too.
ALSO SUPER FUNCTIONAL AGAIN
Minimalist, distinctive, but functional design make this a much-loved jacket. Often the softshell jackets are finished with goggles in the hat. A softshell jacket from CP Company is a wonderful jacket for every season. The Goggle Jacket is top quality and made of 3 layers of GORE-TEX softshell material. This makes the softhell jacket an ideal transseasonal jacket. It is the ideal jacket to quickly put on when you go outside or practical for when you are in the car. Also handy for cycling in the autumn when it rains, because the softshell contains stretch, is water-repellent and windproof. The CP softshell jacket is also often stitched with a waterproof tape. Please note that the softshell jacket is not very suitable for cold winter days, because it is a lot thinner than a winter jacket. We therefore recommend wearing the softshell jacket up to temperatures of 0 degrees.
The designers of C.P. Company only want to dye the coats in earthy, natural pigments. This means that the colorsceme is more authentic, deeper and more exclusive than many other brands. In winter the jacket is warm enough with a somewhat thicker sweater underneath and in summer it is not too warm because the fabric handles moisture well.
