TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

HOW IS THE WATERPROOFING OF THIS PONCHO TESTED?

This poncho is waterproof thanks to the robustness and coating of its fabric and its sealed seams. We measure a fabric's water-resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, expressed in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). Our material is resistant to the pressure from 2000 mm of water after 5 washes. The finished product is approved in a shower test in the lab, where we recreate the conditions of an average downpour: 60 L water per square metre per hour for 2 hours.

HOW IS THIS PONCHO DESIGNED FOR URBAN MOBILITY?

Poncho designed for bike commuting, with a loose fit so you can wear it over your normal jacket and a 20-litre backpack.

Unisex cut that covers you from head to thigh.

You can wear your helmet over the hood or under it, except for bulky helmets such as bowl-type helmets.

Adjustable hood that follows your head movements.

Packs away into its pouch: W 26.5 x H 22.5 x D 5.5 cm.

How to stay dry

Even though this poncho protects your upper body really well (from your head to your knees), it's vital to pair it with overtrousers to protect your legs from the rain. Unfortunately, the poncho doesn't protect your shoes and so, in heavy downpours, this could leave you with very damp feet. The poncho's advantage lies in how easy it is to put on and to pack away into your pannier bags. Transform yourself in seconds!

WATERPROOF AND BREATHABLE?

Hydrophilic coating (RET =< 12): limits condensation inside the garment. To see whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower its resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapour produced by the body escape, and the more breathable it is.

For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric. 9 < RET < 12 = highly breathable fabric. 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric. RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric.

WHAT DOES CERTIFIED VISIBILITY MEAN?

This poncho is certified for NIGHT VISIBILITY (EN17353 standard), with reflective strips to make cyclists visible even at night.

The reflective elements have been carefully positioned to account for the constraints of cycling so that they guarantee visibility at 50 m at night when car headlights are shone on them.

Developed by our apparel team (Cécile, product lead, Emma, product engineer, Olivia, designer, and Lucille, garment designer), this poncho allows you to enjoy your urban rides even in the rain!
