Waterproof Component (2000 Schmerbers), and main seams sealed.
The fabric is windproof thanks to its outer coating.
Protection from the weather
Waterproof hood, elastic cuffs.
Ease of use
2 secure pockets.
Wadding is a synthetic component made up of polyester fibres. Depending on the size of the fibres, more of less air is trapped. For the same mix of fibres, the thicker the wadding, the more air is trapped and the warmer it is.
We measure a fabric's resistance to a column of water in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with 2000mm waterproofing therefore resists the pressure exercised by 2000mm of water (which corresponds to about a 2-hour rain shower).
What do you mean by sealed seams or waterproof strips?
Its seams are sealed (or taped) using heat-sealed, waterproof strips. They are placed behind the seams and are essential for waterproofing clothing so that water cannot enter through capillarity (water being absorbed by the threads and holes of the fabric).
Waterproofness of the garment
This garment has been subjected to a shower test using 60 l of water/sqm/hour for 1 hour. This test reproduces the conditions of a rain shower.
A coating or membrane applied to the inside of the fabric makes it waterproof and therefore windproof. A waterproof fabric has the technical characteristics needed to be windproof certified. It is very important to protect yourself from the wind, when active and when resting, as it drastically cools down the body.
Reversible jacket providing two different styles - making switching styles child's play. One waterproof side and one non-waterproof side. Attached hood, 2 hand pockets.
Component resistance test
"We carry out resistance-to-wear tests. Colour retention test: colour fastness is verified to make sure the colours cannot bleed. Ageing test: repeated washing should not alter the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness or appearance."
Additional recommended products
Care products: spray or liquid water-repellent treatment in the washing machine. To refresh the fabric's water-repellent properties and optimise your clothing's performance throughout its lifetime, we recommend using these products at least at every wash.
Product concept & technology
Ensure that this waterproof protective garment is perfectly dry before storing, preferably on a hanger. To avoid damaging the fabric, store unfolded in a dry place.
Our design team is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, our designers create and develop products that are appealing, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.
