Show Description

There's a lot going on here. The clean, urban-focused style offers ample waterproof-breathable protection for driving ran and gusting wind. It does what a backcountry shell does, but without the mountain-specific features, it's less expensive and has pared-back simplicity that looks right in the city.

  • Made of polyester with a waterproof-breathable polyurethane laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
  • Fully seam-sealed to keep out rain and snow.
  • Recycled polyester taffeta lining slides over layers.
  • Adjustable hood tucks away into the collar when you don't need it.
  • Zippered chest pocket, zippered handwarmer pocket and an internal pocket stow small essentials.
  • Hook-and-loop adjustable cuffs seal out drafts.

Fabric waterproof rating

The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.

20,000mm
Waterproofness

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.

Waterproof with fully taped seams
Fabric active breathability

The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.

Windproofness

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.

Windproof
Length Hip-length
Durable water repellency

Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
