The Outdoor Portal www.outdoor-wandern.de tested TATONKA double jacket “Quito W’s 2in1 Jacket”. Here the test report:
“A wind-tight and water-resistant soft-shell jacket in combination with a high-loft fleece jacket – an exceptionally practical double-jacket system.
Tatonka Quito Women’s 2in1 Jacket is an extremely functional double jacket. It fits close to the body without restricting freedom of movement. The cut is body-hugging and long-length whereby the loins and kidney region is protected and kept warm. Outer and inner jackets are connected at the front with zip fasteners and at the back and at the cuffs with press-stud flaps. The two jackets can be separated quite easily with a few simple actions and voilà: now you have a soft-shell jacket and a high-loft fleece jacket, both of which can be worn separately.
The soft-shell jacket is flexible and with its ergonomic raglan sleeves offers ideal freedom of movement. The special sleeve cut also avoids any unpleasant rubbing of the skin.
At the front there are two spacious pockets, also for ventilation purposes, and which can be closed with zip fasteners. At the top the zip fastener has a chin protection section. The hood and the lower waistband can be adjusted with a 2-stage elasticated cord.
The sleeves can also be closed at the wrist as required with a Velcro fastener.
The inside jacket is made of high-loft fleece fabric which offers ideal heat retention but at the same time allows moisture from the body to escape and dry quickly. At the front it also has two pockets that can be closed with a zip fastener. Just like the outer jacket, the inner jacket also has chin protection for the zip fastener.
The jacket waistband can also be adjusted to 2-places but there is no hood.
The sleeve ends have elasticated knitted cuffs.
On the road:
Tatonka Quito Women’s Jacket is exactly the right garment to protect against frostbite! It keeps you cozy and warm whilst at the same time allowing freedom of movement. The long-length cut means that kidneys and loins in particular are well protected against cold and wind. As required, the outer and inner jacket can be separated from each other or put together again quickly and easily. In other words: Tatonka Quito Women’s Jacket is the perfect and practical double jacket."
