How to stay dry

Even though this poncho protects your upper body really well (from your head to your knees), it's vital to pair it with overtrousers to protect your legs from the rain. Unfortunately, the poncho doesn't protect your shoes and so, in heavy downpours, this could leave you with very damp feet. The poncho's advantage lies in how easy it is to put on and to pack away into your pannier bags. Transform yourself in seconds!

HOW IS THE WATERPROOFING OF THIS PONCHO TESTED?

This poncho is waterproof thanks to the durability and coating of its fabric and its sealed seams.A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard).Our material is resistant to the pressure from 2,000 mm of water. The finished product is approved in a shower test in the lab, we recreated the conditions of an average downpour: 60 L water per square metre per hour for 2 hours.

FABRIC BREATHABILITY

Hydrophilic coating (RET = 12): limits condensation inside the garment. To see if a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapour produced by the body escape, and the more breathable it is.
For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric. 9 < RET < 12 = highly breathable fabric. 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric. RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric.

WHAT IS THE SECRET BEHIND THE PRODUCT?

Developed by our apparel team (Cécile, product lead, Emma, product engineer, Olivia, designer, and Lucille, garment designer), this poncho allows you to enjoy your urban rides even in the rain!
