Made for Our design team developed this jacket for your occasional hikes in the snow in cool weather. Hike warm and dry. Warm and waterproof jacket. Good protection level due to its watertight main seams and its lining with fleece fabric which brings extra comfort in hikes with temperatures down to 0°C.
To dress correctly in the winter, no matter what your activity is, we recommend that you apply the 3 layer principle:
layer 1: The technical base layer will enable damp to be wicked away to keep skin dry.
layer 2: The second layer (fleece, pullover) provides warmth and wicks away the damp.
layer 3: The jacket protects you from outdoor conditions: rain, snow, wind.
The outfit must be breathable to wick away damp.
The inner volume allows you to wear it over a warm 2nd warm layer such as a pullover or fleece.
2 warm hand pockets that close with wrist-straps.
We measure a fabric's resistance to a column of water expressed in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more the fabric is waterproof. A component with a 2000 mm waterproof rating is therefore resistant to the pressure exerted by a 2000 mm column of water (which roughly corresponds to a 2-hour downpour).
Water resistance of the jacket
This garment was approved in a shower test in 60 L of water/sqm/hour for 30 minutes. This test reproduces the conditions of a short winter shower.
Additional recommended products
The water-repellency of a fabric is its ability to let the water slide off its surface, without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warm. Water-repellency is obtained by a treatment applied on the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend each wash). Products (sprays and liquids) are available in our stores.
Will my jacket withstand regular use over the long-term?
To check the durability of our products, we carry out tests on the components selected: resistance to rubbing and abrasion, colour fastness, resistance to repeated washing. All these tests were carried out on the component of your jacket.
