Since the company was founded in 1993, the design philosophy has been based on Scandinavian simplicity, embracing comfort, elegance, and femininity in fine balance with modern urban living communicating the lifestyle of Ilse Jacobsen. Ilse Jacobsen raincoats eschew the outdated, rubber rain slicker for a jacket with a more modern silhouette and rainproof protection. These jackets utilize a bonded softshell with a warm, inner fleece layer and a waterproof, breathable softshell outer that is treated with a DuPont(R) Teflon(r) coating that brings waterproof protection into the modern era.
