Show Description

Combat the damp cold of a west coast winter or a blustery eastern spring. The tailored Confidante jacket is made of waterproof-breathable fabric and has a layer of insulation to keep you toasty while you wait in line at the food truck. A tall neck protects against gusts, and the deep pockets are lined to keep your hands cozy. Taped seams block out November rain, and you can pull on the insulated hood during a squall. Hidden reflective touches help make you more visible on dark winter commutes.

  • Shell is polyester with a waterproof-breathable microporous laminate and DWR treatment that helps sheds rain and snow.
  • Taped seams throughout make it fully waterproof.
  • Insulated with 80g Hyperloft polyester.
  • Insulated hood is adjustable.
  • 2 deep, fleece-lined handwarmer pockets.
  • Zippered internal security pocket.
  • Zipper has a wind placket to block the cold.
  • Button-adjustable cuffs have hidden reflective details: invert the reflective band to go incognito or leave it exposed for nighttime visiblity.

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.


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.

  • 2 front zippered
  • 1 internal zippered

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.

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.
