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 300 L/hr/sqm storm without the tiniest drop getting through the product. The component's waterproofing is guaranteed to withstand more than 10,000 mm of water pressure.
Hand warmer pockets
Two big, zipped, microfleece-lined hand warmer pockets on the hips keep your hands warm, protect them from the wind and rain, and keep your accessories safe.
The cuffs feature a stretch pleat and a tab with a rip-tab strip so that you can adjust the fit at the wrist.
The injection-moulded plastic front and pocket zips are oxidation-resistant, thanks to the special shape of the teeth. It has a double exterior flap and a placket that guarantee optimal waterproofing. The hem is adjusts using an adjustable elastic with a blocking eyelet.
What is breathability and the RET index?
The breathability of your jacket corresponds to its ability to let perspiration generated by the body escape. It is measured by its Resistance to Evaporative Transfer (ISO 11092 standard). The RET is a resistance index; the lower the value, the greater the breathability of the fabric. RET between 6 - 9: extremely breathable, between 10 and 13: very breathable, between 14 - 17: breathable, between 18 and 20: not very breathable, greater than 20: not breathable.
What does water repellent mean for a fabric?
The water repellency of your warm jacket is obtained 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 warm jacket counters the windchill effect.
