howies Dyfi Active Shell

I’ve been a howies fan since about 2006 and recently they seem to be producing some outdoor clothing that reminds me of what they did back then. This is their brand new Dyfi Active Shell which sells for £39 and comes in Fire Orange, Licorice and Summer Blue.

It’s a lightweight, windproof active shell for cycling or running made from recycled polyester with breathable, four-way stretch arm panels. It has a Hydrophobic coating to keep a bit of water at bay too.

Last year howies made the Brenin jacket which this is based on but has an improved cut for less wind flap at speed. The stretch panels have also been adjusted to reduce breeze getting in while keeping ventilation optimum. There are reflective bits on the cuffs and tail and a zipped chest pocket with headphone port. Available here.

Now for some action photographs!
