Waterproof / Breathability:
Lab tested and athlete approved our waterproof fabrics meet the highest standards of waterproofing and durability to keep you dry and warm season after season. A microporous (2) laminate or coating is added to the back side of the (1) material. These pores are so small that they do not let water penetrate the material but are just big enough to let moisture vapors you create from sweat to pass through the material. This is how we keep you dry.
10-20K= waterproof under moderate pressure. Best used in moderate rain, average snow and under moderate pressure. This level of waterproof generally provides the most value when looking at price and protection and can serve the wearer in a variety of snow conditions.
2L- two layer fabric is just that, a face fabric(1) and a waterproof / breathable membrane(2). This is the most common waterproof / breathable application and allows for garments to be shells or have insulation since there is a lining fabric needed to protect the waterproof membrane.
The job of insulation is to keep you warm and this is done by trapping air within the fibers of the insulation and slowing the transfer of heat from your body through your jacket. A general rule of thumb is: the thicker the insulation the more heat retention is realized.
The low to medium amount of insulation in these garments is ideal if you generally ride in cold to frigid climates. The built in insulation takes the place of a separate insulator garment so you fuss with less layers to keep warm.
The right fit is a factor of form and function. All our fits are tailored for performance and style.
