The upside downdesign approach

We’ve been developing urban commuter jackets for a while now, and we’ve been highly successful at it. The starting point, based on our Tailored technology design approach, has always been to take archetype models and turn them into highly functional urban commuter pieces. This time, we turned things upside down.

About this page

The key functional features we wanted to incorporate in the new Trench GTX jacket were typical heavy-duty ingredients such as our unique, on-demand VCS|aquadefence ventilation system and the award-winning CE-level 2 SEEFLEX™ limb protectors.

We also thought it was about time to introduce a GORE-TEX® laminated outer shell to the urban crowd since long-distance commuters would seriously benefit from this technology. That said, we also wanted to design a jacket that looks fashionably sleek and understated when wearing it on the city streets, riding or walking.

The benefits of alaminated outer shell

When a product description mentions that a jacket has a 2L or 3L outer shell, it means that the waterproof layer - in this case, the 400D 2L GORE-TEX® fabric - consists of a membrane that is directly applied to the outer shell; that’s instead of it being a separate waterproof layer that floats between the fabric outer shell and the mesh/nylon inner lining. The latter is often referred to as a Z-liner construction.

The Four Major Benefits

About this page

The first major benefit is that nothing provides higher breathability than a laminated outer shell. And nothing comes even close to a laminated GORE-TEX® fabric as is the case with the Trench GTX jacket. Secondly, a laminated outer shell fabric has less water pick-up, so the garment stays lightweight and dries quicker. And third, is that it prevents cold (from the soaked outer shell) from being transported to the body, keeping you in your comfort zone for hours. This is a true blessing, especially for long distance commuters and adventure-touring riders that predominantly ride in cold and wet weather conditions.

Less water pick-up automatically implies that the item dries quickly and is ready for the commute back home at the end of the day or to continue your trip in comfort. The biggest benefit of a laminated outer shell is the fact that our designers have the possibility to incorporate our patented VCS|aquadefence ventilation system. VCS|aquadefence is a unique, on-demand ventilation system that provides incredible airflow in a laminated outer shell construction.

VCS|aquadefence - How it Works

How It Works

About this page

The way it is constructed also allows us to beautifully integrate it into the design of the item, so no compromises are necessary in terms of the desired esthetics of the garment. The VCS|aquadefence system is cleverly hidden behind 100% waterproof fabric panels that can be opened and closed even while riding and when wearing gloves. When you pull up the fabric panel you can hook the button in the FidLock® magnetic closure where it sits perfectly locked. With a simple tug, you can take it out of its cavity and fold it back. 

When opened, it reveals the actual VCS|aquadefence ventilation panel that is fully perforated and allows for tons of air to flow freely into the garment. When applied to trousers, the VCS|aquadefence is always located at the upper leg. Looking closely at the actual panel, you see that there is a rubber-like rim surrounding the ventilation panel. This is what holds the water back when it’s closed. As soon as it starts to rain, simply close the panel and you’re 100% wind and waterproof. Water will not be able to pass the rim.

Protection Inside

At this level of engineering, you wouldn’t expect and won’t get anything less than our top level SEEFLEX™ CE-level 2 impact protectors, which are located at the elbows and shoulders. On top of that, we also added a new (optional) protection feature which is the possibility to include the new SEESOFT™ CE-level 1 divided chest protectors, made of the same material as the (also optional) SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 insert back protector. In the trousers, we have standard included the ultra-thin and comfortable SEESMART™ CE-level 1 hip protectors.

If you’re looking for a serious step up in terms of performance than you should probably look at the 3L GORE-TEX® Ridge GTX jacket. If you like the casual style of the Trench GTX but prefer a LTD construction, whereas you can remove the waterproof lining, then you should consider the Sand Urban jacket. A lovely, yet more traditional jacket from our Tailored Technology collection is the Livingstone jacket.
