A little rough weather shouldn't prevent dedicated adventurers from getting outside. The fully waterproof-breathable fabric on the Aquanator Jacket ensures dryness through wet and windy conditions. The relaxed silhouette easily fits over several warm layers and can be worn as just a light jacket as conditions require.
- Shell is abrasion-resistant 75-denier polyester with a polyurethane waterproof-breathable coating and a DWR (durable water repellency) finish.
- Fully lined with polyester mesh that slides well over a fleece or sweatshirt and is soft against skin when you wear the jacket over just a T-shirt.
- Zippered hand pockets for thawing fingers.
- Storm flap over zipper keeps weather out.
- Elasticized cuffs seal out the cold and damp.
- Reflective details for low-light visibility.
- Name label on the inside helps make those games of “whose is whose” a bit easier.
Measured in grams per square metre (gsm). The larger the number, the heavier and thicker the garment.

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.
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.
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.
