Field jacket in iridescent fabric
A fabric is water repellent after special treatments to make it resist water: the drops of water do not remain on the fabric, but slip away. Water-repellent fabrics have a certain degree of porosity so they are permeable to air and water vapor. They allow the passage of water when the hydrostatic pressure is high (for example during heavy rain).
The Teflon EcoElite ™ finish is the first plant-based, non-fluorinated treatment based on renewable sources for a long-lasting water repellency and it is produced with 60% renewable raw materials. Up to three times more resistant than existing non-fluorinated repellents, it maintains the breathability of the fabric for the maximum comfort.
