FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT

WATERPROOFING of the Tribord S500 dinghy/catamaran jacket:
This windproof jacket was laboratory tested under a shower of 100 litres of water / m² / hour for 3 hours, which corresponds to a steady downpour of rain. This test demonstrates that the water does not pass through either the sealed seams or the fabric. The adjustments and fabrics at the extremities (neck, waistband and cuffs) prevent water getting in while in a static position and greatly reduce it during physical exertion.
Adjustments of the Tribord S500 dinghy/catamaran sailing anorak: NECK FASTENING
The neck with its flexible fabrics can be adjusted in 2 ways: * closing the half zip with its pull cord positioning the "wallet-like” pleats inside the waterproof fabric (depending on the shape of the neck, it is recommended to fold the fabric in your hand to avoid wrinkles) * closing the smooth outer fabric with the rip-tab.
Adjustments of the Tribord S500 dinghy/catamaran sailing anorak: WAISTBAND AND WRISTS
For more waterproofing, less wind entry and greater freedom of movement: * the belt is made of flexible neoprene, adjustable by 2 rip-tabs positioned on the right and left of the waistband * the cuffs are made of a smooth, flexible and waterproof fabric, adjustable by a rip-tab (for small cuffs, the fineness of the fabric allows a clean fold).
Glove storage in the Tribord S500 dinghy/catamaran sailing jacket:
There are 2 small fabric straps sewn on each side of the neoprene belt. They are for hanging or sticking mittens or gloves in (hanging mittens or gloves by their rip-tabs), so as to not get in the way before or after practice.
The shoulder pocket of the Tribord S500 dinghy/catamaran sailing jacket:
The size of the shoulder pocket was designed so as not to be cumbersome or too heavy in order to not hinder manoeuvres or movement. Its design and tests were therefore carried out with a standard size penknife, a rope and a snack of 2 cereal bars. The contents remain stable in the pocket and remain accessible.
Technical information on waterproofing:
Fabric is waterproof for 10,000 mm as a new product. Fabric is waterproof for 2000 mm after 5 machine washes without having re-waterproofed the jacket. Waterproofing for 2000 mm tested on the seams after 3 washes.

    VAREUSE ENFANT

    Le produit est conforme à mes attentes.
    Un petit bémol à noter: il manque une grande poche ventral à fermeture éclair qui serait pratique pour ranger gants, bonnet, lunette, démanilleur etc....

    Brand's answer :

    Bonjour Monsieur,

    Je suis ravi de voir que ce produit répond à vos attentes et vous remercie de nous partager votre avis !
    Nous avons fait le choix de ne pas mettre de poche ventrale car celle ci est la plupart du temps cachée par le gilet d'aide à la flottabilité qui lui en possède généralement à ce niveau de pratique. Nous avons donc privilégié une poche latérale sur le bras pour être complémentaire du gilet.

    Je reste à votre disposition pour tout complément d'information,

    Cordialement,

    Jean-Baptiste Cuminal
    Chef de produit
