Show Description

When you live in the northern hemisphere, you learn to roll with the seasons. The Steadfaster Jacket uses a layer of light, quilted insulation to help you face cool fall and spring days – or winter days if you live on the west coast. Taped seams and waterproof-breathable fabric offer shelter from the rain and wind, but the tapered design has a presentable, urban appropriate look. The hood and stand-up collar keep your head and neck warm, while zippered pockets and a front storm flap add practical touches for cold days and windy settings.

  • Outer is made from polyester with a waterproof breathable micro-porous polyurethane laminate.
  • Insulated with quilted polyester Hyperloft insulation with a recycled polyester lining.
  • Taped seams keep out water.
  • 3-panel adjustable hood zips-off.
  • Separate collar keeps your neck warm even without the hood.
  • 2 zippered handwarmer pockets with soft lining.
  • 1 interior zippered chest pocket.
  • 2-way front zipper can be adjusted for sitting.
  • Adjustable cuffs with hook and loop tabs.
  • Center back length is 83cm for size medium.

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.

15,000mm
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.

10,000g/m2/24h
Pockets
  • 2 handwarmer

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 Below hip
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.
