A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). The higher the pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Components scoring 2000 mm can withstand the pressure exerted by 2000 mm of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting around 2 hours, i.e. 6 to 12 cm of rain in 1 to 2 hours).
Hydrophilic coating (RET = 12): limits condensation inside the garment. To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapor produced by the body escape, and the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9 < RET < 12 = very breathable fabric / 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric / RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric.
COMPATIBILITY WITH OTHER PRODUCTS
