What is water repellency? A quality achieved by applying a hydrophobic, water repellent treatment to a fabric. This process prevents water from sticking to the fabric's surface, so less water is absorbed. When movement is added to the equation, water glides over the fabric. This is characterised as water repellency. Thanks to its water repellency, water does not soak into the external fabric, which keeps the fleece light and allows it to dry more quickly.
What is breathability and the RET index? A fabric's breathability is its ability to disperse water vapour produced by the body (perspiration). It can be measured using the RET index (Resistance to Evaporative Transfer). The RET is a resistance index; the lower the value, the greater the breathability of the garment. RET between 6 and 12: very breathable; RET between 12 and 20: breathable; RET above 20: not breathable. Our products are very breathable, with a RET between 7.2 and 12.
