Thermal insulation :
Coated fabric to prevent the effects of wind chill.
Easy to use :
Outer hood, adjustable cuffs, full zip, 2 pockets.
Resistance to salt water:Treatment preventing effects of hydrolysis that alter standard coatings.
Care Instructions :
Rinse with fresh water after use in seawater, wash separately the first time and dry on clothes line or in a tumble dryer on the delicates setting.
Tested in showers (100L/HR) for over 4hrs. Waterproof>2000mm, fully taped seams.
HYDROPHILIC membrane?The membrane works in stages to wick away perspiration. Firstly, the fabric fills up with moisture to saturation point, and then transfers moisture outside due the difference in pressure inside jacket and the outside. The major benefit of the hydrophilic membrane is that it does not contain pores; it is therefore not necessary to rinse abundantly to wash out the crystals coming from salt water. Breathability is therefore constant over time.
Water repellence :
It's the result obtained from applying hydrophobic water repellent treatment to fabric. This process prevents water remaining on the fabric’s surface therefore reducing its ability to absorb water. When you add the idea of movement, water can then slide off the fabric. This characterizes the effects of water repellent effect. Due to this process, water does not seep through the fabric and the garment remains therefore lightweight and is quick-drying.
It is very important to protect yourself from the wind when active or resting, because it greatly contributes to body cooling. According to the 'Windchill' model that measures the felt air temperature under the influence of wind and cold: at a temperature of 5°C combined with a 30km/h wind, the felt air temperature will be 0°C. If the air temperature is at 0°C and wind speed at 30Km/h, the felt air temperature will be -6°C. The material used in our products prevents the effects of windchill.
