Show Description

The Avenida Jacket provides the same level of protection as our alpine jackets, but is styled for going downtown or taking on your travels. The 2-layer fabric is waterproof and breathable, with a lining that helps it slide easily over layers. Supple fabric, contemporary cut and storm-proof pockets outfit it to be your "daily driver" through the rainy season.

  • Made of polyester with a waterproof-breathable polyurethane laminate and fully taped seams.
  • DWR (durable water repellent) finish offers excellent waterproofness.
  • Fully lined with soft polyester twill that glides over layers.
  • 3-panel hood with drawcord adjustments.
  • Hook-and-loop adjustable cuffs keep out gusts.
  • Zippered hand pockets have storm flaps to protect contents from rain.

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.
