WATER COLUMN TEST (known as the “Schmerber” test)
The strength of the fabric is measured in water pressure, expressed in mm, through the water column test (based on the standard test JIS 1092B). The greater the pressure, the more the fabric is waterproof.
With a waterproofing index of 5000mm, our 500 jacket is highly waterproof.
Fabrics with a waterproofing index of 5000 mm withstand a pressure of 0.5 Bar.
In our eyes, this test reflects real-life conditions the best because products designed with a waterproof fabric could let in water through the seams, flaps or zips.
In the test, the products are put under a shower in order to test their overall waterproofing capacity.
Our 500 jacket protects you from a heavy downpour (12 cm of rain in 2 hours)
The breathability is measured by the Water-Vapour Resistance (Ret) coefficient. It measures the a fabric's resistance to wicking away moisture. The lower this resistance (and therefore the coefficient), the more breathable the fabric. (test based on the ISO 11092 standard).
Our 500 jacket has an index of 12 and is therefore breathable and perfectly suited for use during moderate effort
Tips for storage and maintenance
Machine wash - 30° max - normal
Do not bleach
Do not tumble dry
