Influenced by its Scandinavian heritage, the Danish brand designs proper rainwear that doesn't compromise on style and will withstand even the stormiest weather. Today, the label has multiple collections of weatherproof raincoats, ready-to-wear, bags and accessories.

The fabric is bonded together using ultrasonic welding which ensures quality products. All extras including zips and trimmings are designed to excel in the wettest weather.

Looking after your jacket is really easy. If you accidentally mark your jacket you can spot clean it with mild soapy water or if you want to give it a complete wash you can pop it in the washing machine on a cool 30-degree cycle. When drying your jacket don't put it in your tumble dryer, just leave it out on your washing line or rack.
