PRESENTING RAIN JACKETS FROM MOUNTAINSKIN
Most experienced outdoorsmen know that rain jacket is among the most important pieces of gear in their packs. Its main function is to shield the user from wind, rain, and snow, but also to quickly transport any moisture from the inner to the outer environment. This has to be done because moisture accumulation inside the clothing system compromises its insulation capacity. While this can be tolerable in warmer weather, it is very dangerous in extreme conditions and can have serious consequences. Additionally, sweat and body oils block the pores of the waterproof breathable fabric reducing its breathability.
Mountainskin Lightweight Waterproof Jacket is a windproof rain jacket. It’s completely waterproof and offers excellent weather protection in extreme conditions. Suitable for a layered clothing system, this rain shell can be a perfect outer layer due to its high breathability and water-resistance. The outer shell is made of polyester treated with a DWR for added protection from rain and snow. Full front zipper with a covering flap going all the way to the top of the zipper provides additional protection from wind and rain. High collar with a chin guard protects your neck against the elements...
WATERPROOF BREATHABLE CLOTHES - TYPES AND PERFORMANCE
More and more people engage in and enjoy outdoor sports and activities. Since both the environment and the heat generated by activities are beyond the control of the person engaged in the outdoor sports, it is important to provide people with reliable sportswear.
Layering is among the most important concepts regarding outdoors apparel. A layered clothing system usually consists of three layers of clothing: a base layer, a mid layer, and an outer layer. For complete protection from rain or water, it is possible to wear a fully waterproof jacket. However, as we explained in All About Waterproof Breathable Fabrics, the use of a simple waterproof outer layer is ineffective because it shields from rain and snow but it doesn’t let internal water vapor to escape. This leads to a formation of condensation in the clothing system which seriously decreases the system’s capacity for ensuring insulation and weather protection. Moreover, this leads to the feeling of clamminess and what’s worse - to excessive cooling. Therefore, to provide both protection and comfort to the user, the outer layer must be waterproof and breathable...
ALL ABOUT WATERPROOF BREATHABLE FABRICS
In less than ideal conditions, protection against wind and precipitation is required. Thus, in bad weather, the outerwear must be wind- and waterproof. A waterproof material is expected to fully protect from rain, snow, and wind and entirely prevent the penetration and absorption of liquid water. Usually, waterproof textiles act as a barrier between your body and the humidity in the environment. Indeed, waterproof fabrics may give you excellent protection from the elements, however, they are not able to transport the perspiration through the clothing to the outside causing a person to get wet from inside the clothing. One possible solution to this problem is given by the so-called waterproof breathable fabrics (WBFs). The technology for manufacturing waterproof breathable textiles has been constantly developing and improving since the introduction of Gore-Tex some 40 years ago. It is also quite diverse with plenty of new fabrics introduced through a steady blend of innovation and evolution. Garments made of waterproof breathable textiles are used by sports and outdoor enthusiasts and professionals in any conditions. A waterproof and breathable fabric incorporates two distinct functions of waterproofness and breathability. It should basically provide protection from the rain, wind and cold but also maintain comfort just below the fabric layer thanks to allowing internal water vapor to escape...
INSULATED JACKETS - BASICS, FEATURES, AND MATERIALS
An insulated jacket must provide protection against the outside weather conditions. Keeping out wind and precipitation is the most important task of your outer layer. If this layer fails in heavy rain, it doesn’t matter how good your other garments are or what material they have been made of - wet clothing exposed to the wind can bring you on the verge of hypothermia very rapidly. Your insulation jacket must be waterproof - it’s much more comfortable if it is made with waterproof breathable fabric (WBF) such as Gore-Tex, eVent or another material of this kind so that the jacket will allow moisture transfer from the body to the environment in order to avoid excessive sweat accumulation.
Softshells and softshell jackets sometimes can replace insulation jackets, especially for day hiking or city walking in better weather conditions. Softshells are water-repellent and wind-resistant, flexible and air permeable, meant to protect you until you find shelter. Softshells excel at maintaining a comfortable temperature during high exertion and are exceptionally mobile, moving freely and easily, though you can’t rely on them in extreme conditions. Hardshells, on the other side, are fully windproof, waterproof and breathable - made to protect you in harsh weather conditions...
