WATERPROOFING WATER COLUMN TEST (known as the “Schmerber” test)
The strength of the fabric is measured with water pressure in mm through the water column test (based on the standard test ISO 811). The greater the pressure, the more the fabric is waterproof.
With a waterproofing index of 3000 mm (2000 mm after 5 washes), our 500 trousers are highly waterproof.
Fabrics with a waterproofing index of 2000 mm withstand a pressure of 0.2 Bar.
BREATHABILITY Ret TEST
The breathability is measured by the Water-Vapour Resistance (Ret) coefficient. It measures the a fabric's resistance to wicking away moisture. The lower this resistance (and therefore the coefficient), the more breathable the fabric is! (test based on the ISO 11092 standard).
Our 500 trousers with an index of 12 are therefore breathable and perfectly suited for moderate effort
Our fishing clothes are created by our teams of engineers and designers in Cestas, France.
At the heart of the Gironde department, close to a number of fishing spots (big lakes in the south west, rivers in the Pyrenées, and even the Atlantic Ocean).
Our clothes are also tested and approved by numerous anglers: team members, customers, and even fishing guides.
