The exclusive Novadry Swell component is guaranteed to keep you dry even in a downpour. In the rain simulator, the anorak spent 4 hours under the equivalent of a 100 L/hr/sqm shower without the tiniest drop getting through the product. The component's waterproofing is guaranteed to withstand more than 5000 mm of water pressure. All seams are 100% sealed.
The flat, semi elasticated waistband offers a remarkable degree of comfort and freedom of movement. The back is slightly longer than the front, affording protection even when bending over.
The cuffs are both elastic and adjustable thanks to two self-gripping strips. This double feature means the cuffs can be adjusted to fit your wrists to help prevent air and water from getting in.
Protection of documents and accessories:
The inner zip pocket lets you keep your documents and accessories safe and protect them from water and damp.
Two big, zipped, hand-warmer pockets let you protect your hands from the wind and rain and keep your accessories safe.
Made using two materials (nylon and mesh), the lining has been specially designed for optimum moisture wicking by creating natural air circulation.
The injection-moulded plastic front and pocket zips are oxidation-resistant thanks to the special shape of the teeth. There is also a zip flap with drainage for optimum waterproofing.
What is a waterproofing test or "shower test"?
Approved test where the garment is placed under a shower simulating different weather conditions. All our products are certified 100% waterproof having been tested for 4+ hours in rain of 100 L/hr/sqm to 450 L/hr/sqm depending on the product use. To put this into perspective, the highest recorded rain fall was in the USA in 1942, when 174 L/hr/sqm fell over 4.5 hours (NOAA). The average rainfall in Paris is 2 L/hr/sqm (www.Paris.fr)
