Softshell Jackets

Custom softshell jackets are a jacket staple for any business or organization. Softshell jackets are made from a softer material that feels more comfortable in comparison to hardshell jackets that are stiffer. Softshell jackets bridge the gap between a fleece jacket and waterproof jacket to provide a lightweight and breathable design. Softshell jackets are most well-known for being water-repellent, breathable, and stretchy. They’re typically made from polyester material with added elastane in some custom jackets.

Organizations and businesses typically design custom softshell jackets as an addition to employee uniforms and they also make for popular employee incentive or gift ideas.

They usually have a sleek design that make them the perfect layering piece, and some are designed to be packable for easy carrying on-the-go.
