Description

Show Description

At home on streets and sidewalks when the rain comes in sideways. The Bon Vivant Jacket has a long cut that offers protection combined with ease of movement. Made of a soft waterproof-breathable fabric, it's more supple than standard rain wear. It has clean styling that allows you to dress it up a little when you want an elegant urban look. And deep, accessible pockets let you warm your hands or zip your gloves inside so you keep them all winter.

  • Face fabric is 75 denier polyester with a DWR (durable water repellency) finish to shed precipitation.
  • 2.5 layer waterproof breathable construction is fully seam taped to seal out water.
  • 2 vertical handwarmer pockets with zippered closures.
  • Attached hood adjusts with a snap on the back and a drawcord.
  • Full zip closure with snap-button wind flap. The zip stops short of the bottom hem to allow mobility.
  • Back vertical gusset for freedom of movement.
  • Mid-thigh length.

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.

8000mm
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 Mid-thigh
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.
