S&R 9 Softie® Smock

Details
Developed by Snugpak® with input from professional navigators, mountain leaders, climbing instructors, meteorological staff, and military personnel. The new functional Snugpak® Search and Rescue Smock has been created to support the individual when exposed to cold weather, including Lowland and Hill Walking, mountain walking, scrambling, rock climbing or completing that Scottish Winter Ascent. The Snugpak® Search and Rescue Smock will protect from a diverse range of environments, terrain and weather.


The Snugpak® Search and Rescue Smock is ideal for both mountain and lowland ventures, all year round, from hill-walking in Dartmoor and the Peak District to summer Alpine in Snowdonia and Scottish Winter on Ben Nevis, where the main environmental considerations are wind and cold weather:

• Hill Walking
• Scrambling
• Rock Climbing
• Summer Alpine Mountain Walking
• Winter Mountaineering

The Snugpak® Search and Rescue Smock is a tri-layer garment and uses both Paratex Micro as a face fabric, and an internal Softie® Premier fill, encapsulated with a Paratex Light lining. Designed to provide excellent thermal protection against the cold, as well as high protection against wind, the Search and Rescue Softie® Smock is available in a variety of Softie® weights, for the following temperature ranges:

• Search and Rescue Smock (Softie® 3) 0℃ to -5℃
• Search and Rescue Smock (Softie® 6) -5℃ to -10℃
• Search and Rescue Smock (Softie® 9) -10℃ to -15℃

The Search and Rescue Softie® Smock is lighter than normal expedition style jackets and uses water-resistant YKK zips, making it ideal for when size and weight need to be at an absolute minimum. It is ideally worn with a variety of base layers, such as the Snugpak 2nd Skinz Coolmax base layer, to move moisture away from the skin, keeping you dry and regulating core temperature.

The quick drying, Paratex Micro 100% nylon material has a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish. To maintain water repellency, use a cool tumble dry after washing and periodically re-treat the Smock with suitable aftercare products, such as Nikwax and Grangers. The Search and Rescue Softie® Smock will keep you dry in a short, light shower, giving you time to find a safe place to stop and put on more effective (hardshell) waterproof layers, if required. The Search and Rescue Softie® Smock can also be worn under waterproof [PTFE] membrane hard shells in severe weather, still allowing easy access to your essential equipment.

In dry, colder conditions, the cut of the Softie Smock enables you to layer effectively with additional thinner insulation, or warmer layers worn underneath so that core temperature can be effectively managed. In warmer months, the Softie 6 weight is light enough to be worn when static for extended periods, such as on belays, as well as an extra layer when wild camping etc.

The Search and Rescue Softie® Smock allows essential equipment to be carried centrally, with easy access when wearing a day sack, expedition pack or climbing harness and maintains its core functionality with other crucial outdoor equipment. To complement the Search and Rescue Softie Smock®, wear it with the Sleeka Salopettes for complete thermal insulation in extremes of temperature.
