This jacket has a cut that fits all shapes while still looking very feminine. A warm layer such as a fleece or light sweater can be worn underneath. Inner lining can also provide more comfort.
You can choose your usual size, or a size above if you don't want it to be worn fitted.
The hood is removable thanks to press studs. It can be adjusted in height using an elasticated cord and adjusted in depth thanks to a Velcro tab located at the back of the hood.
CONSTRUCTION OF THE JACKET
This jacket is constructed with 2 coated layers, including a mesh lining (large mesh lining)
‘2 layers’ means there is the outer fabric and the lining.
A coating is applied to the inside of the fabric, it is similar to a resin that makes the component waterproof, while remaining breathable. The inner lining of the jacket has the role of protecting this coating
We measure the water resistance of the fabric and the water resistance of the entire jacket.
The waterproofness of the fabric is 5000 mm Schmerber:that means that it withstands the pressure exerted by 5000 mm of water column (ISO standard test).
This jacket has also been validated by a shower test reproducing the conditions of a shower, or 12 cm of rain in 2 hours.

HOW TO RESTORE THE WATER-REPELLENT PROPERTIES OF MY JACKET?
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water, and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.
All the steps to restore the water-repellent properties are below:
The breathability of a material is its capacity to wick away the water vapour generated by perspiration. During intense effort, it is, therefore, essential to wear very breathable clothing so you do not stay wet.
Breathability is measured by the RET, the resistance of a fabric to the evacuation of moisture. The lower this coefficient, the more breathable the fabric is:
RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20: low breathability
