Description

Show Description

Lightweight and packable, this fully seam-taped jacket is ideal for wet climates or where you expect foul weather. The Hydrofoil Stretch Jacket's waterproof Pertex Shield construction is breathable so you don't overheat on long approaches. 40-denier nylon promises durability, with 4-way stretch that’s soft and supple, never crunchy. A helmet-compatible hood and pockets that sit above a hipbelt or harness make it ideal for alpine missions and backcountry trips. Best of all, we’ve kept it amazingly affordable so you can budget for longer climbing trips and extra days on the hill.

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 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.
