Show Description

Totally waterproof and moderately breathable, the original Aquanator is an all-rounder for rainy season walks or for wet-weekend camping. We kept everything great about the Aquanator shell and added a layer of lightweight insulation The result is lighter, more comfortable and just as versatile as a layered combo of a hoodie with a shell. And, whn rain isn’t an issue, the fitted hood tucks away into the collar, for a clean bomber jacket style.

  • Waterproof breathable shell with a DWR finish protects you from the rain.
  • Insulated with lightweight THERMOLITE® Micro insulation that has an impressive warmth to weight ratio.
  • Slim, fitted hood rolls into the collar.
  • Collar is insulated and fleece-lined.
  • 3-piece, adjustable hood has a short brim helping to keep the rain off your face.
  • Fleece lined pockets keep your hands warm and out of the wind.
  • Full-length zip has a storm flap for extra protection.
  • Regular fit offers no surprises, just comfort.

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.

Pockets 2 handwarmer

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 Hip-length
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.
