Detail & Composition
Waterproof and breathable in a 3-Layer fabric, this garment turns innovation into a matter of style, wellbeing and performance. It features a roll-away hood with great visibility thanks to a REFLEXITE® patch, collar is lined in perforated fleece, shoulders and cuffs with REFLEXITE® patches, hand warmer front pockets, mesh lining for the body and in taffeta for the sleeves, double adjustable cuffs and emergency whistle inside the pocket. The Force 9 Ocean Wave Jacket is ideal in extreme conditions.
Reflective tape on clothes makes it easier to see the wearer, especially at night or when weather conditions make visibility poor.
3-layer processing consists of a tri-laminated structure formed by 3 superimposed layers of fabric." To make a laminate, a breathable and waterproof membrane is joined to a high-performance technical fabric. With a 3-layer fabric an additional lining is not required, which ensures that the garment is lighter, more breathable and comfortable, with faster drying.
Clothes with a cut and structure that were specifically conceived to follow and facilitate body movement.
Thermo-taping involves the hot application of a seam tape on the back of the fabric to prevent water from entering through the micro-holes in the seams. The total waterproofing of a garment is guaranteed by using waterproof fabric and thermo-taping the seams.
By windproof we mean that the fabric cannot be penetrated by strong winds. The windproof feature helps to maintain body heat
A breathable fabric allows the perspiration produced by physical activity to pass through it. The breathable nature of the fabric promotes biological breathability which allows body moisture to be expelled easily, thereby decreasing condensation from perspiration, increasing comfort. A breathable fabric measures the water vapor, expressed in grams, that crosses an area of 1 square meter in 24 hours (g/m2-day).
Waterproofing is the technique that makes a fabric water and wind resistant. These properties can be achieved by treating with water-repelling substances or through the use of a mechanically-activated hydrophic/microporous membrane. Waterproofing is expressed in millimeters, which represent the water column height the fabric can withstand before liquid penetrates.
