The best weather protection. Lighter. Stronger. For strenuous activity in extreme conditions. The first number in its 20,000/20,000 rating is the waterproofness: The fabric can withstand 20,000 mm of water suspended over its surface before moisture seeps through. The second number shows its breathability: In 24 hours, it allows 20,000 grams of water vapor to escape per square meter of fabric.
Rather than being sewn, the seams in this garment are welded for the lightest, most weatherproof and breathable performance. Our ThermaWeld construction makes this piece ideal for alpine sports, hiking and anytime when ultralight rain protection is needed.
Our durable water–repellent (DWR) finish causes moisture to bead up on the surface so it rolls off or evaporates rather than soaking into the fabric.
