The resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the JIS 1092 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. This clothing was validated in a shower test using 60 L/sqm/hr of water for 1 hour. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.
A component with a waterproof rating of 5,000 mm can withstand the pressure exerted by a 5,000 mm column of water (which is roughly equivalent to a 1 hour rain shower).
Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET).
This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin.
The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric.
RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabric
RET ≤ 12: breathable fabric
RET ≤ 20: little breathability
Our product has a 12 RET rating
WHERE DO OUR CAPES COME FROM?
Created in our international design centre at the foot of Mont Blanc in France, this cape is then manufactured by our suppliers in Bangladesh.
We collaborate closely with these partners who have real expertise in the manufacture of our capes.
Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.
