Ultra-technical, waterproof, breathable, and built with Swiss material technology.
- Outer material engineered with self-drying nanotechnology
- Built with an intelligent waterproof membrane
- Fitted with a watertight chest pocket
As we face life on Earth with new categories of weather, we’re going to need new categories of clothing. With extreme weather events on the rise for the last 40 years, and floods and fires sweeping across cities and states, “waterproof” is not enough. The megastorms are coming. Describing it as raining doesn’t quite cut it when you see houses and cars floating down the road. So we’ve started working on clothing designed for a world of ultraviolent weather – a world where the sky starts acting more like the ocean, and atmospheric rivers dump tidal waves of water down on towns, cities and villages.
The Waterfallproof Jacket is designed to combat the megastorms of the future, where crazily intense rainfall becomes the norm. Highly waterproof, windproof and breathable, it’s constructed with an advanced 3 layer Swiss material with an intelligent membrane that opens and closes in the heat, and self-drying nanotechnology that mimics a lotus leaf. Fully seam sealed, it comes with a watertight chest pocket that can withstand total immersion in water up to your neck.
The outside of the Waterfallproof Jacket mimics one of nature’s most brilliant pieces of engineering, so water simply rolls off it.
Nanotechnology means water can’t stick to it
When a water droplet lands on a normal flat surface, it sticks easily and quickly begins to absorb. But when water hits the surface of the lotus leaf, it can only balance on the peaks of the tiny bumps, meaning any movement or a breeze will cause the liquid to simply roll away. The outside layer of the jacket replicates the leaf’s microscale bumps using Schoeller’s nanosphere® technology. The bumps are completely imperceptible to the naked eye, but allow the jacket to resist water, oil and dirt.
The jacket is designed to combat the megastorms of the future, where crazily intense rainfall and snowstorms become the norm.
How the membrane works in the cold
This c_change® membrane mimics natural structures like flowers and pinecones, opening and closing in response to changes in temperature, humidity and sweat. It’s designed to keep you at a consistent temperature by combining really high breathability with heat retention. While it can open up like a series of microscopic vents to let heat escape, in the cold it closes itself like a protective barrier to stop heat leaving. So as soon as the temperature drops, or you stop moving, the membrane contracts to insulate you and retain heat close to the body.
Waterproof detailing throughout
Every detail of the jacket is built for extreme waterproofness. All the seams are fully sealed, and we’ve engineered out seams at the shoulders to eliminate the chance of water finding its way in. You’ll find adjusters on the inside hem to tighten the jacket closed at the waist, an adjuster at the back of the hood, and hidden elasticated gaiters at the cuffs to create an airtight seal between you and the elements.
Water resistant zippers and storm flaps
The jacket also comes with two large side pockets with water resistant zippers covered by storm flaps. The two-way front zipper is waterproof and protected by an external storm flap. And on the inside there’s an internal storm flap to protect you from wind and rain.
