High-spec, durable, packable, the Argonaut is the Swiss Army Knife of waterproof jackets, giving you huge amounts of functional bang for your buck without sacrificing quality.

A relaxed fit makes the Argonaut perform in any scenario, whether you’re walking the fells, paddling round Lake Windermere, biking back to your tent, chilling out at the campsite  you can comfortably wear it over a fleece or over a base layer. 

The PU coated, 2.5 layer fabric with 10K/10K performance offers excellent protection against the elements and is highly breathable: perfect when you're breaking a bit of a sweat on the steeper inclines. Mesh pockets double up as vents for dumping that bit extra heat.

With additional thoughtful features, such as an adjustable roll away hood and velcro adjustable cuffs, Argonaut will keep you dry and comfy in all but the most extreme of UK weather conditions.

Environmental Considerations

The chemical finish that keeps water beading off your waterproof jacket has changed.
As with all waterproofs from responsible outdoor brands, our waterproof jackets meet international environmental standards and require occasional washing with a technical wash to maintain their high breathability.
This wasn’t always the case. Years ago, waterproof jackets were treated with chemicals that had toxic by-products that lingered in the environment for generations. Those old chemicals needed little maintenance, whereas modern waterproofs need regular washing.
We fully support this change. In fact, we quite like the idea of taking time to look after our kit so that it lasts a long time.
We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of all our products –in fact it’s in our DNA: we can’t imagine ever doing anything else. We always review the materials we use, manufacturing methods and our own consumption of resources. We do the research, make informed decisions, and choose the best option available to us.

Product Care Information

To maintain the high performance of your waterproof, we recommend you wash and re-proof once or twice a year using specialist products like Nikwax or Grangers. For more information, read our detailed care instructions.

Great Jacket, Top Performer

Really pleased with this Waterproof Jacket from Alpkit, Wore it a few times when its been raining hard and kept my base layer totally dry. Love the peaked adjustable integral hood. Good size pockets. Once again the staff at Alpkit were really helpful. This is a top class company that makes you feel a valued as a customer.

Solid jacket

Amazing compact jacket. Use this in Iceland this past weekend survived driving rain and wind, no wet patches at all. Surprised by the compact size it can squeeze down to. Great jacket thoroughly recommend it.

Poor performance

The jacket keeps out rain but has poor breathability. I returned my jacket and it was replaced. However, the replacement doesn’t perform any better. The jacket feels clammy very quickly and becomes wet (from sweat).

Singletrack Review the Argonaut

This jacket performs excellently in a huge range of conditions, and while I only tested it on the bike in winter, I have no doubt it would suit other activities just as well at other times of year.
