Designed For :
Effective backup protection from the wind and rain during your HIKES. Backup jacket with zip fastening. This waterproof and breathable jacket folds down into its own pocket to be easily carried anywhere with its built-in belt.
Can be folded into the collar and adjusted with an elastic drawcord and toggles.
Hydrophilic coating : reducing any condensation in the garment.To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapour generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 920 = little or no breathability.
Waterproof coating (2000 mm). Main seams taped.We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard).The higher the water pressure withstood, the more waterproof the fabric. A waterproof rating of 2000 mm means the fabric can withstand pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (the equivalent of a rain shower lasting for two hours).
Water repellence :
Water repellency is a fabric's ability to let water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from swelling, and keeps it lightweight, breathable and warm.
Care Instructions :
Machine-wash at 30°C. Use a liquid washing detergent and do not use softener. Close all zips and riptapes before washing. Renew the water-resistance of your garment by using a suitable coating every 2-3 washes.
Very good in keeping oneself dry in light rains and combined with a water resistant trouser is much much better in terms of maneuverability than the bulkier and clumsier ponchos.
Just ensure that while buying you wear your heaviest jacket for the trek and then choose the size. During the trek it might rain or snow on the coldest day and the rain jacket has to be the outermost layer. Reply
