Thermal comfort and windproof
Wind considerably increases the effect of the cold! With an outside temperature of 0°C and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°C. "Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
Water-repellency of the component (different to waterproofing)
A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. In this way, the fabric does not become waterlogged.
The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment (we recommend every 3 washes) by placing the jacket in the dryer for 10 minutes at a low temperature.
You can also use the FORCLAZ re-waterproofing spray (ref 8554908)
