The women's team of Tanguy de Lamotte, professional skipper, appreciated the benefits of these overtrousers during preparation for the Vendée Globe 2012-2013, just as well under violent winds as under torrential rains with waves that swept over the deck of the boat.
Novadry re-creates storm conditions in its weather simulator. In these conditions, after 24 hours under a torrential shower of 450 L/hr/sqm, our sailing jacket still kept the user dry.

Machine wash your Ozean 900 waterproof overtrousers at 30°C. Turn inside-out and fasten rip-tabs. 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 at a maximum temperature of 140°C or apply the Tribord re-waterproofing spray.
Store in a dry place, but do not leave NOVADRY® garments on a heat source such as a radiator, as this may damage the breathable membrane or coating.
FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT

The knee, seat, and heel reinforcements are made of an abrasion- and wear-resistant component. They are equipped with removable articulated foam pads for added protection of the sailor's knees and seat.
What is a waterproofing test or "shower test"?
Approved test where the garment is placed under a shower simulating different weather conditions. All of our products are certified 100% waterproof, having been tested for 4+ hours in rain of 300 L/hr/sqm to 450 L/hr/sqm, depending on the product use. To put this into perspective, the highest recorded rain fall was in the USA in 1942, when 174 L/hr/sqm fell over 4.5 hours (NOAA). The average rainfall in Paris is 2 L/hr/sqm (www.Paris.fr)
What is a waterproof and breathable HYDROPHILIC membrane?
The membrane works in stages to wick away perspiration. Firstly, the fabric absorbs water vapour until it is saturated. Then, due to the difference in pressure between inside and outside the jacket, the fabric disperses the water vapour outwards. The main advantage of the hydrophilic membrane is that it does not contain pores; consequently, there is no need to constantly rinse the fabric to wash off any salt water crystals. Breathability therefore remains constant over time.
