    1. WATERPROOFING
      - Dual-layer hydrophilic fabric - >10000 mm of water pressure. - Fully taped seams. - Inner flap - Bottom of the legs adjustable by rip-tab strip. - Tested under a simulated heavy rain shower (450 L/hr/sqm) for 4 hours.
    2. BREATHABILITY
      RET <12: very breathable. To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we measure its evaporative resistance, or RET, (test based on the ISO 11092 standard). It is its ability to allow the water vapour produced by the body during exercise to escape.
    3. COMFORT
      - The waist is adjustable using semi-elasticated rip-tabs.
    4. REFLECTIVE
      A large reflective 3M patch on the back intensifies low light sources. The Tribord logos are also reflective.
    5. RESISTANCE TO WEAR
      - Injected plastic central zip resistant to salt oxidation.
    6. HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 1: before washing
      Close all zips and flaps and remove any parts of the garment that cannot be washed. Also remember to loosen the straps and elastic parts and empty the pockets. Then turn the garment inside out to wash it.
    7. HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 2: washing
      You can wash your jacket on a synthetic cycle at 30° or 40°C with your usual detergent. Do not use fabric conditioner, which could damage the existing performance of the garment, or bleach. Also take care not to bend your jacket too much when you place it in the washing machine and do not overload your machine. Very important: select a thorough rinse or double rinse to completely remove all detergent residue.
    8. HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY step 3: drying
      Drying is a crucial phase in reactivating the water repellent treatment. We recommend that you lay your jacket flat on a clothes rack and leave it out to dry in the open. Caution: never dry your jacket directly on a radiator. Then place it in the tumble dryer on a short synthetics cycle, i.e. 10 to 15 minutes, before turning it back the right way round.
    9. HOW TO REACTIVE THE JACKET'S WATER REPELLENCY
      If, despite this procedure of washing and thorough rinsing followed by gentle drying in a tumble dryer, the drops of water no longer run off the surface of your jacket, we recommend that you "re-waterproof" it using a waterproofing spray or detergent sold in our stores.
    10. Water repellent component:
      The water repellency of your Offshoroa Salopettes is obtained by applying a treatment to its surface. This treatment causes water to slide over the surface without soaking in. This prevents the component from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, breathable, and warm. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment's lifetime. Our ranges offer products for this purpose or solutions can be found on the care instructions on how to reactivate your salopettes' water repellent treatment
    11. How important is windproofing?
      Protection from the wind is very important, as wind can chill the body significantly whether you are active or at rest. According to the "wind chill" model, which measures how the air temperature feels when factoring in the wind and cold: at a temperature of 5°C combined with winds of 30 km/h, the temperature felt will be 0°C. If the air temperature is 0°C and wind speed is 40 km/h, the temperature felt will be -7°C. Your Offshoroa salopettes help to counter the windchill effect.
    12. What is a waterproof and breathable HYDROPHILIC membrane?
      The membrane works in stages to wick away perspiration. Firstly, the fabric absorbs water vapour until it is saturated. Then, due to the difference in pressure between inside and outside the jacket, the fabric disperses the water vapour outwards. The main advantage of the hydrophilic membrane is that it does not contain pores; consequently, there is no need to constantly rinse the fabric to wash off any salt water crystals. Breathability therefore remains constant over time.
