Below is a simple summary of which garments are waterproof based on a three-level scale. We have formulated our waterproofness scale based on the waterproofness of the material, whether the garment has taped or welded seams, and how the garment is constructed.
Not waterproof - This garment is not waterproof and will not repel rain.
Water-repellent - This garment is water-repellent and will repel light rain for a short length of time.
Waterproof - This garment is fully waterproof, both material and construction.
Below is a simple summary of which garments have insulating properties. The warmth scale is based on a number of factors such as weight of padding, type of padding, length and construction of the garment.
Remember that everyone experiences heat differently and some people feel the cold more than others. This scale is intended to provide a pointer regarding how warm a garment is.
Shell - This is a shell garment and has no insulating properties.
Warm - This garment is warm and has insulating properties.
Extra warm - This garment is extra warm and has highly insulating properties.
Below is a simple summary of the durability of our outerwear. How hard-wearing a garment is is based on the material’s durability, texture and extra reinforcement. The durability is tested by rubbing the garment with sandpaper.
Hard-wearing - This garment is hard-wearing in relation to the material it is made from.
Very hard-wearing - This garment is made from a hard-wearing material.
Extremely hard-wearing - This garment is made from a strong, hard-wearing material with extra reinforcement in exposed areas.
We use this in garments created to withstand wind and light rainfalls. The materials are highly breathable and comfortable to wear. It manages light weather conditions, but should not be worn in heavier weather conditions.
