This jacket has a cut that fits all shapes while still looking very feminine. A warm layer such as a fleece or light sweater can be worn underneath. Inner lining can also provide more comfort.
You can choose your usual size, or a size above if you don't want it to be worn fitted.
The hood is removable thanks to press studs. It can be adjusted in height using an elasticated cord and adjusted in depth thanks to a Velcro tab located at the back of the hood.
CONSTRUCTION OF THE JACKET
This jacket is constructed with 2 coated layers, including a mesh lining (large mesh lining)
‘2 layers’ means there is the outer fabric and the lining.
A coating is applied to the inside of the fabric, it is similar to a resin that makes the component waterproof, while remaining breathable. The inner lining of the jacket has the role of protecting this coating
The waterproof rating is measured by the fabric's resistance to water pressure expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.
The component of this product has a waterproof rating of 5000 mm, i.e. it can withstand the pressure exerted by a 5000 mm column of water. This is also equivalent to 5 000 Schmerbers.
Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET).
This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin.
The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.
RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20: little breathability
Our product has a 12 RET rating
HOW TO RESTORE THE WATER-REPELLENT PROPERTIES OF MY JACKET?
The water-repellent property of a fabric 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. The fabric is made water-repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process for the black coloured jacket (only) that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.
