Ridgeline's Evolution Anorak / Smock has essentially taken the already brilliant Monsoon Elite Smock and just added more! When they released the Monsoon Elite II, it represented not only fantastic quality but brilliant value for money and the Evolution Anorak / Smock has taken that to another level with an increased Hydrostatic Head and increased breathability which makes this smock perfect for the more active outdoorsman.
The Ridgeline Evolution Anorak / Smock has been developed around Ridgeline's quests for lighter clothing while maintaining the same protective properties of Ridgeline's traditional gear. Using the new RL-eVolve Membrane you are ensured to be protected and comfortable in all weather condition. The #Hi-DROSTRETCH 3 layer fabric ensures that this Anorak / Smock is probably the lightest yet most protective functional jacket on the market.
With all the features you need for serious outdoors work including waterproof zipped pockets, removable wired hood, Velcro cuff and long New Zealand style, the Ridgeline Evolution Anorak / Smock is a step above the competition on all levels.

Ridgeline began life as a New Zealand owned and operated specialist outdoor clothing brand at the hands of Peter Maxwell. In mid-1993 Peter began working on the first Ridgeline designs and the product range was a successfully launched in the March/April 1994 issue of NZ Guns & Hunting magazine. Prior to commencing Ridgeline, Peter had manufactured his own range of tough motorcycle and motocross clothing, which gave him a hands-on insight into what Kiwi outdoors people needed - clothing that was warm, light, comfortable and able to handle a lot of very rough treatment.
In the early years the Ridgeline brand achieved a high level of acceptance with New Zealand hunters, but Peter's time was always divided between his manufacturing and magazine editing tasks, which meant that Ridgeline did not always recieve the attention it deserved. So when Cameron Sports Imports Ltd. indicated an interest in acquiring the Ridgeline brand, the deal was done. Since then, with innovation and hard work the brand has grown exponetially - becoming a market leader in the Australasian hunting clothing scene and now branching further afield into the likes of Southern Africa and Western Europe.
The Ridgeline philosophy has been consistent from the early beginnings until now - to ensure that comfortable, durable performance outdoor clothing should be affordable. With grass roots in the rugged New Zealand Mountains, Ridgeline has developed a specialist range of fabrics to suit just about any challenge your environment can throw at you. With the characteristic Ridgeline 'Big Four'- Warmth, Comfort, Durability & Functionality, combined with superior designs and its own 'Hide & Seek' Buffalo Camo, Ridgeline is a market leader and the choice of many hunting and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
