The test re-creates storm conditions in a weather simulator. Under these conditions, after 4 hours under a torrential rain shower of 100 L/hr/sqm, our 100 warm jacket still kept the user dry.
occasional female sailors in cold weather and moderate conditions (moderate wind and rain, calm to rough seas)
Machine wash your Kostabero women's warm waterproof jacket at 30°C, inside out with the velcro fastened and without fabric conditioner. Choose a long rinse and gentle spin cycle. Line dry if possible. Occasional tumble drying on low for a short period of time will improve the water repellent treatment. To reactivate the water repellent treatment, you can also warm iron the fabric or apply the Tribord re-waterproofing spray.
Store in a dry place, but do not leave your garment on a heat source such as a radiator, as this may damage the breathable coating.
FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
The exclusive waterproof fabric is guaranteed to keep you dry – even in a downpour. In the rain simulator, the jacket stayed for 4 hours under the equivalent of a 100 L/hr/sqm storm without the tiniest drop getting through the product. The component's waterproofing is guaranteed to withstand more than 5,000 mm of water pressure.
The hood is easily stored in the pocket built into the collar. It can be tightened with an adjustable elasticated cord equipped with two self-blocking eyelets to better protect you from the elements.
Hand warmer pockets:
Two big, zipped, hand-warmer pockets protect your hands from the wind and rain and keep your accessories safe. The lining keeps your fingers warm and dry.
The cuffs have rip tabs so that you can adjust the fit at the wrist and prevent air and water from getting inside.
The injection-moulded plastic front and pocket zips are oxidation-resistant, thanks to the special shape of the teeth. It has an exterior flap and a placket with a gutter that guarantees optimal waterproofing. The hem is adjusts using an adjustable elastic with a blocking eyelet.
The jacket is lined with wadding combined with microfibre to provide thermal protection.
What is breathability and the RET index?
Approved test in which your 100 warm jacket is placed under a shower simulating different weather conditions. All our products are certified 100% waterproof having been tested for 4+ hours in rain of 100 L/hr/sqm to 450 L/hr/sqm depending on the product use.
Water repellent component:
The fabric of your 100 warm jacket is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment causes water to slide over the surface of the fabric without soaking in. This prevents the component from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, breathable, and warm. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime. Water-repellent treatment products are available in our stores.
How important is windproofing?
Protection from the wind is critical, as wind can chill the body significantly whether you are active or at rest. According to the windchill model, which measures how the air temperature feels when factoring in the wind and cold: at a temperature of 5°C, combined with winds of 30 km/h, the temperature felt will be 0°C. If the air temperature is 0°C and wind speed is 40 km/h, the temperature felt will be -7°C. Your 100 warm jacket counters the windchill effect.
