Designed for Female lowland hikers seeking protection from the rain and wind. Inside lining for better comfort!!. A simple, basic model for those seeking a 1st price rain jacket just as suited to everyday use as lowland hiking.
This garment has been shower-tested using 60 litres of water/sqm/hour for 2 hours. This test replicates the average conditions of a rain shower. This jacket's fabric is water repellent: this 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. A fabric becomes water repellent by applying a treatment to its outer surface. What's more, all the seams are taped.
How to maintain the waterproofness of your jacket long-term
In order to retain the item’s sustained, long-term waterproof properties, the water repellency of the fabric will need to be reactivated: we recommend every 3 washes, or after a dozen uses in the rain. When washing, abundant rinsing is essential, then reactivating the water repellent properties can easily be done in hot water: or with your tumble dryer or hair dryer for example, for a short time. You will find all our tips in the maintenance manual of this product sheet.

Mesh body lining to enhance the garment's breathability this lining also makes it much more pleasant in contact with the skin.
Waterproof rating expressed in mm or Schmerber
We test a fabric's resistance to water pressure by measuring the height of a column of water supported by the fabric in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The better the fabric resists pressure, the more waterproof it is. A component with a 2000 mm waterproof rating can therefore withstand the pressure exerted by 2000 mm column of water
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure 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 can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability.For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
