TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Hybrid construction

Combination of a durable and protective fabric (147 g/m2; 70 Denier) on the areas to be protected from friction (shoulders, outside of the sleeves, bottom of the garment at the front and back) and a light and breathable fabric (109 g/m2; 20 Denier) elsewhere.
Back 2 cm longer than the front to ensure maximum protection and to cover the thermal layer 2 underneath if necessary.

Hood

Completely adjustable hood height and depth.
Semi-rigid visor with integrated mesh headband to provide a high level of protection and support.
The high stand-up collar effectively protects the lower face.

Pockets

2 hand pockets that remain accessible even when carrying a backpack and a YKK AquaGuard waterproof zip.
There is a mesh pocket for a mobile phone inside the right pocket to keep it safe and prevent it from falling out when you open your pocket.

Front zip

Features a waterproof YKK AquaGuard zip along the entire length with an inside flap providing protection from the wind. Under-placket folded on the bottom for easily engaging the zip.
Double slider so that the bottom of the jacket can be opened.
Soft fabric flap at the top of the collar to protect the chin.

Protection

Double tightening with an elastic cord and toggle at the hem.
Cuffs with rip-tab adjustments that cover the wrist.
The gusset on the wrist makes it easy to wear gloves with the jacket.

Waterproof rating of the fabric

The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in terms of the height in mm of a water column that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric.
The waterproof ratings of the Trek 700 jacket are as follows:
25,000 mm rating before washing for the lightest fabric (11,000 mm after 5 washes)
20,000 mm before washing for the strongest fabric (17,000 mm after 5 washes)

Waterproof rating of the jacket

The waterproof of the jacket was tested under a shower of 450 L/m²/hour of water for 4 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a thunderstorm in the mountains.

Breathability of the fabric

To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more the water vapour generated by physical activity can escape, and the higher the fabric's breathability.
It is considered that if:
* RET < 9 = very breathable fabric
* 9 < RET < 12 = breathable fabric.
Here are the breathability values of the Trek 700 jacket:
RET < 8 for the lightest fabric
RET < 12 for the most resistant fabric

How to reactivate the water repellent property?

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.
In order to reactivate it, follow the guide:
