UNIQUE APPROACH Urban looking, yet functional styles for men and women

We continuously strive to offer a range of clean urban jackets and coats with superior technical quality – at a competitive price point. The jackets can be worn more causally, or in a more formal setting – a great alternative to the traditional coat or parka. The jackets and coats have a very diverse customer base and are created to blend in with your personal style.

HOW TO CHOOSE A WATERPROOF JACKET Choosing the right jacket that best suits your needs is essential. Understanding the jacket’s capabilities will help you make an informed decision for the conditions you are likely to use it in.

WHAT MAKES A JACKET WATERPROOF?

WATERPROOF COATING

Essentially there are two kinds of ‘waterproof’ jackets

The outer fabric used for water resistant and water-

– water resistant, sometimes referred to as shower-

proof jackets will often be treated with a Durable

proof, and fully waterproof. There are several ways

to make a jacket resistant to water, for example by

repellent coating. You can tell a jacket has been

WATERPROOF MEMBRANE A waterproof membrane is a thin layer bonded to the outer fabric. The job of keeping the water out is left to the membrane, which prevents liquid water (rain) to enter, but at the same time allow water vapor (sweat) to escape. The membrane is also what makes a jacket breathable. TAPED SEAMS A jacket can be treated with a waterproof coating and have a waterproof membrane but not be fully waterproof. For a jacket to be 100% waterproof it will also need to have taped seams. Taped seams are heat sealed seams that stop water coming through the stitching. It is particularly important that you choose a jacket with taped seams if you will be in heavy, prolonged rain. WHY IS BREATHABILITY IMPORTANT? The ability of a jacket to allow perspiration to escape is as important as not letting water in, especially if you will be doing anything energetic. If a waterproof jacket is not breathable, sweat will be unable to escape, making the wearer feel damp. It’s common for people to feel as though their waterproof has ‘leaked’ when in fact it’s perspiration from inside they are feeling.

HOW IS IT DONE? Waterproof breathable fabrics consist of an OUTER FABRIC, and a bonded MEMBRANE. The purpose of the OUTER FABRIC is to protect and look stylish; it’s not waterproof but is treated with a solution called DWR (Durable Water Repellent) so it doesn’t soak up water. The job of keeping the water out is left to the MEMBRANE, which prevents liquid water (rain) to enter, but at the same time allow water vapor (sweat) to escape.
