The Sastruga is a real looker in our eyes, most definitely casual enough to work as a great apres ski jacket but with some stylish touches.
The outer fabric of the Sastruga is made from 100% recycled ripstop which is highly durable and also does a grand job of keeping the wind out. Being an eco-conscious brand Finisterre have treated the shell with a C6 DWR finish which is PFC, PFOA, and FPOS free. The finish gives the jacket a fighting chance in light rain and snow.
The eco-friendly theme is continued inside the jacket with a layer of Primaloft Silver Eco insulation which is made from 70% post-consumer recycled content. Eco-credentials aside, this fill is very effective at keeping you warm and, being synthetic, retains far more warmth when wet compared to a down fill.
The jacket feels light and comfortable to wear and some neat touches elevate it from the ordinary. The hood packs away making it a great option for a ski mid-layer and the whole jacket packs into one of its pockets so you can easily stash it in a backpack or weekend case and pull it out to use as a travel pillow should the need arise! The concealed ribbed cuffs seal in warmth and the hood and hem are both adjustable to suit your tastes as well as warmth requirements.
