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 breathability of our garments.
No breathability - This garment has a low capacity for transporting moisture in the form of water vapour, which means that you may experience a damp, clammy feeling if you plan to wear the garment for any significant level of physical activity.
Breathability - This garment has been made from a material that has the capacity to allow water vapour to pass through.
Mechanical breathability - This garment offers mechanical breathability, which means that we have incorporated one or more vents into the garment so that air can pass through. These vents are carefully positioned, so that water cannot penetrate the garment.
What we know best – 100% waterproofness. Everything from the fabric, to the design, construction and details of the garment is made with our knowledge in how to create True waterproofness. All our products with STORMsystem™ are made to withstand the harshest weather conditions and will keep you dry from the outside elements.
Gunnar is a warm parka from the Didriksons Originals collection that is full of surprises. For one thing, it has a padded, removable inner gilet. The outer fabric of the coat is a cotton blend that gives a soft, lightweight feel, and the hood is lined with a cosy high-pile fabric. Gunnar is padded with recycled polyester. The inside of the cuffs feature reflective details that are visible when they are turned up. The parka is fully wind and waterproof with taped seams and made from breathable fabric. It has a full-length front zip with protective flap and two roomy side pockets and inside pockets. The hood is fixed and has a high front collar to protect against cold winds. The lining has been dyed using a solution dyeing technique. This technique reduces water, energy and chemical consumption during production. PFC-free water-repellent finish.
