HydroFoil™ Specifically developed for high aerobic activities, HydroFoil™ Plus combines a lightweight ripstop nylon shell with a composite membrane that is completely waterproof, totally windproof and extremely breathable. The outer fabric is the latest new-generation Pertex® Shield+ membrane. It is more than twice as breathable as most other quality waterproof-breathable fabrics, and has a small amount of stretch allowing a closer fit. The outer fabric is treated with a water repellent finish that encourages rain to bead up and roll off, while there is a lightweight tricot mesh on the inside for greater durability and improved moisture dispersion.
Composition: 100% nylon with PU laminate.
Waterproofness: 23,000mm hydrostatic head with water repellent finish on face fabric.
Breathability: 33,000gm per sq.m per 24hr.
microFoil™ Gossamer-light Pertex® shell fabric. Tightly woven 20 denier semi-dull nylon blocks wind while a water repellent finish resists light drizzle. There is no coating for enhanced breathability. Mini ripstop weave with slight mechanical stretch ensures a performance fit.
HyperActive™ A lightweight summer fabric packed with technology to keep you cool and dry as. The bi-component knit backs a sharp-looking polyester outer with a smooth layer of nano-charcoal polyester against your skin. Nano-charcoal disperses sweat to accelerate evaporation and is naturally anti-microbial to fight nasty smells. The fabric dries at the speed of light - great when reduced to hand washing on tour - and even performs its quick-drying magic in the wet under a rain jacket.
HyperActive's UPF 50+ rating extends your no-burn time by 50 times over bare skin. Designs with a stand-up collar and long sleeves maximise protection from the sun's UV rays. Yank 'em up if it gets too stifling.
