This new Hard Shell has some amazing new features that we are excited to share. Cortazu have taken their popular Award Winning Hard Shell and updated it with a higher waterproof rating, recycled fabric and zip-in system to connect to their Mid-layer or Fleece.

Designed to be functional including 20+ features all in one jacket: 9 pockets to hold all your essentials, Waterproof AcquaGuard® zippers, Cohaesive™ Cords, Recco® Rescue System and more.  The perfect match to the Cotrazu Shell Pant, Mid-layer or Fleece.

This jacket is a lightweight 3-layer hard shell jacket. Perfect for skiing, hiking or commuting. The Dermizax®EV fabric is 100% waterproof and windproof while remaining breathable under active conditions.


Dermizax®EV – The perfect membrane that redefines comfort and protection for high-performance fabrics. Created with proprietary technology in Japan and designed to protect you in all weather conditions.

Why this fabric? Dermizax®EV is a 100% waterproof and windproof membrane (fabric). Specifically developed to provide maximum protection against all kinds of demanding weather conditions, from extreme snow to pouring rain. At the same time, the fabric is very breathable and allows sweat to be transported outside of the jacket during high-intensity activities.

Making it the perfect jacket for activities such as skiing and snowboarding or on your everyday commute.

This award winning brand won gold at ISPO 2019  for creating the first 100% Recycled Nylon 3-layer shell jacket.

All products are available exclusively to purchase on their webshop: cortazu.com
