We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure resistance, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with 2000 mm rating can resist 2000 mm of water pressure (which is roughly equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours). With a waterproofing rate over 10 000 mm, the Mountaineering Hardshell pants offer an extremely high level of waterproofing.
The hardshell pants have been approved in a shower test under 26 gallons of water / m² / hour during 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain downpour.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporate resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more moisture, generated by an active body, is evaporated, and therefore the higher the fabric's breathability.
We consider that if
- RET < 9 = highly breathable fabric
Pants have a RET between 9
On top the main fabric's breathability, these pants have been designed with 2 side zippers that let air flow in to regulate temperature, further enhancing ventilation
Full length two-way zipper
This new generation 2-way zipper offers the same waterproofing as a classic silicone zipper (similar to the pocket zippers) while being more flexible, which improves the hardshell pants compression when packed away. Plus, this zipper is easier to handle, which helps to make it longer lasting. The 2-way zipper and full length opening, allow you to fit or remove pants, crampons, skis, which is an added bonus during a storm.
