Why The Red Original Active Jacket Is Great For Autumn

Posted by Ross Montandon

Autumn is a fabulous season with the leaves becoming a beautiful golden brown with warmth beginning to fade away, but still providing plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy the outdoors sports that we love. We know at Red Original, as outdoor enthusiasts ourselves, the correct equipment and clothing during the Autumn season is crucial in our performance. Today we will be focusing on the Red Original Active Jacket and why is it perfect for Autumn.

Compact And Practical

Autumn-time weather can be unpredictable, to say the least. One moment there may be golden sunshine, the next there could be heavy downfalls of rain and gusty winds. It is for this reason that we created a lightweight waterproof jacket, designed to keep you warm and dry - but can easily be packed away without taking up too much room in your bag. The Active Jacket packs down small into its own pocket making it the perfect 'go-anywhere' lightweight waterproof jacket, great for the ever-changing Autumn weather.

Multiple Sizes Available

The fit of this lightweight raincoat is second to none. The 4-way stretch, 5k/5k waterproof, Blue Sign approved fabric allows for a full range of movement for paddle boarding, running, hiking or any outdoor activity. The active jacket is available in both men’s and women’s sizes in small, medium, large and extra-large. Designed for a snug, tailored fit. Therefore we would recommend sizing up if you would like a more relaxed fit and you would like to layer up for the Winter Season or when the Autumn winds are in full force.

Fantastic jacket. It was everything as described. My husband is a slim 5ft8 and the medium size was perfect. It's great for dog walks, cycling and paddling. Great all rounder. Highly recommend.

This jacket is very comfy and will use not just on the water but when I’m in the great outdoors for any other use. It’s brilliant. You need this one jacket.
