Our Toasty-Dry line has waterproof and/or water resistant fabric depending on the product, an insulation layer and a warm fleece lining.
Yes. Our rain gear has a factory tested waterproof rating of 10,000 mm. There are three key factors working together to provide 100% waterproofness:
1 – The top (outside facing) layer of fabric has a durable water repellent (DWR) finish applied to it to help water bead on the fabric surface. When water beads on the surface, this helps to prevent water from saturating that top layer of fabric. We use a fluorine free BIONIC-FINISH® ECO technology DWR from Germany.
2 – Breathable waterproof inner membrane. This is the magic that allows body perspiration to escape while preventing water from coming through to the inside of your garment. This membrane is applied to the inside of the top layer. If your rain gear has a liner (thin or fleece) – you won’t actually see this layer.
3 – Taped Seams. Adhesive seam sealing tape is applied to all seams to prevent water from entering your raingear at these potentially vulnerable stitching lines.
Over time and multiple washes the outer DWR will wear off and you may notice your garment “wetting out” – meaning water is able to penetrate that top layer (not beading anymore) making your rain gear look “wet”. When water rests on that membrane surface it prevents inside water vapor from escaping. It may feel like water is soaking into the garment, but it is actually just trapped moisture building up on the inside of your jacket/pants/suits/etc.
If this happens, we recommend reapplying a DWR to extend the life of your waterproof garments. You can purchase a DWR wash or spray and just follow the product instructions for best results. We recommend using the spray for items that have a liner – such as our fleece lined jackets, pants and suits.
