What is softshell?
Softshell literally means “soft shell” and indicates a category of technical fabrics, it is made from woven fabric, making it a warm layer that brings comfort without the restriction of other materials. And the material is water-resistant, highly breathable, high-performing and lasts a long time. Softshell usually has been created for use in outdoor sportswear, such as skiing and hiking.
However, we believes that softshell should not only be suitable for outdoor sportswear. It can be suitable for more occasions. What’s more, it can also become a clothing with fashionable elements. Thus, we has made some improvements in the characteristics of the ordinary softshell jackets. In tailoring, it is more neat and generous. Different from straight version of outdoor clothing, we incorporated a waist design which is more fashionable and femme-presenting. And we has also added the design of removable hood to some styles. With one single piece of clothes, get multiple choices. In materials, we unprecedentedly uses softshell bonded velvet instead of fleece. These improvements of IKAZZ Softshell Anorak make it more daily and more coziness for urban commuting.

Velboa vs. Fleece
Softshell bonded velvet is a new type of bonded fabric made of functional fabric and velboa.
Velboa: Velboa (faux fur fabric) is made from 100% polyester, making it tough-wearing and highly durable. It features a snugly and soft texture of maximum comfort and warmth.
Fleece: Fleece is usually created from polyester (which comes from plastic). Because of the structure of the fibers, fleece is extremely warm.
In contrast, velboa is softer and more skin-friendly than fleece. Because the fiber structure of fleece is not firm and close enough, air can easily get in and out, velboa is much warmer.
