XP 2.5-layer fabric
Our hard working 2.5-layer fabric offers a great combination of durability, waterproofness, breathability and lightweight.
- Nylon woven face fabric treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) to prevent the fabric from becoming waterlogged so that it stays breathable.
- A hydrophobic, microporous polyurethane coating is applied to the face fabric. The pores are too small to allow water droplets to pass through, but large enough for water vapour to pass.
- On the inside a smooth textured diamond matrix print protects the microporous coating from abrasion and improves moisture dispersal.
Waterproofness 10,000 mm
Breathability 5,000 g/m 2/24hrs
Breathability tested by the A1 method
YKK AquaGuard zip
A splashproof zip with a polyurethane tape to keep the rain out when paddling. AquaGuard zips have no sealed ends and are not fully waterproof when immersed.
