“A Single Layer Jacket with the wind and snow shedding abilities of a soft shell, but the feel of a fleece”
-Outside Magazine (2015 Buyers Guide)
Well... that about says it.
Not a Hard Shell, Not a Soft Shell, Not a Sweater, and Not a fleece.
Rather, A truly genre blurring ‘do-it-all, wear-it-anywhere’ jacket, and the world’s first piece of outerwear to be built with our much-anticipated CORE CONSTRUCTION™ Technology. Compared to the last 30 years of stiff, glue based weatherproofing technology, CORE CONSTRUCTION™ Technology relies on the direct integration of the waterproof membrane in to the core of the fabric itself. The result: A single layer, soft, supple, sweater-like fabric with previously unattainable breathability and weather resistance. Outerwear Fit.

VOORMI's new jackets might be the best shells ever made - though we've made bold claims like that before... THIS TIME WE MEAN IT... -Outside Magazine
Soft and Waterproof - Though wool is an ideal wet-weather layer because it keeps you warm even when soaked, Voormi set out to prevent the fibers from absorbing water at all. With wind and water-resistant properties woven right into the merino, its Fall Line Jacket looks like a sweatshirt, but it deflects weather like a synthetic softshell. A roomy hood and full-length zipper make it even more versatile - Men's Journal: Gear of the Year 2015
National Geographic Gear of the Year: Fall/Winter 2015
"The Fall Line performed great in cool autumn hiking as an insulating layer, allowing body heat to escape, blocking light rain, and serving as a more weather-worthy option to fleece."
While all of our fabrics are specifically designed for machine care, we recommend protecting your investment through minimally damaging processes. For us, this usually means a cold wash cycle followed by a hang-dry. If you do find yourself in a pinch [yes, we’re talking to you procrastinators] than it’s perfectly ok to throw it in the dryer. In either case, we recommend staying away from those pesky fabric softeners.
