Fabric waterproofing
We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure resistance, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with 2000 mm rating can resist 2000 mm of water pressure (which is roughly equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours). With a waterproofing rate over 10 000 mm, the Mountaineering Hardshell pants offer an extremely high level of waterproofing.
Product's waterproofing
The hardshell pants have been approved in a shower test under 100 litres of water / m² / hour during 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain downpour.
Fabric breathability
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporate resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more moisture, generated by an active body, is evaporated, and therefore the higher the fabric's breathability. We consider that if - RET < 9 = highly breathable fabric - 9<RET<12 = breathable fabric - RET > 12 = slightly or not breathable fabric. Pants have a RET between 9<RET<12
Product's breathability
On top the main fabric's breathability, these pants have been designed with 2 side zips that let air flow in to regulate temperature, further enhancing ventilation
Full length two-way zip
This new generation 2-way zip offers the same waterproofing as a classic silicone zip (similar to the pocket zips) while being more flexible, which improves the hardshell pants compression when packed away. Plus, this zip is easier to handle, which helps to make it longer lasting. The 2-way zip and full length opening, allow you to fit or remove trousers, crampons, skis, which is an added bonus during a storm.
