FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
What is a Softshell?
The softshell component is a high-tech fabric combining 3 materials: a breathable and windproof microporous membrane sandwiched between the water repellent outer layer and the warm and comfortable fleece inner layer. This lightweight and breathable high-tech material provides thermal comfort and ease of movement thanks to the warm stretch material that also protects against light rain.
Water repellent component.
Your SL900 Women's Softshell is made water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment causes water to slide over the surface without soaking in. This prevents the component from swelling with water and keeps it lightweight. This treatment must be renewed several times throughout the product's lifetime. Water-repellent treatment products are available in our stores.
What is breathability and the RET index?
The breathability of your SL900 Women's Softshell 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 - 13: very breathable, between 14 - 17: breathable, between 18 - 20: not very breathable, greater than 20: not breathable.
What is the Clo index?
Clo is an index that allows you to measure the thermal resistance of your SL900 Women's Softshell. During the test, the component of your technical garment is exposed to a temperature close to that of the body and a controlled outside temperature. The clo index shows the ability of your SL900 Women's Softshell to maintain your body heat inside the garment. The higher the clo index, the better the technical component will preserve the heat emitted by your body.
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 30 km/h, the temperature felt will be -6°C. The materials used in our products help to counter the windchill effect
