Performance Features

  • Moderate Rain Conditions

    This jacket will keep you dry during moderate rain conditions, whilst still providing you with comfort and breathability.

    Waterproof ratings are based on the fabric's ability to withstand a water column height over a 2.5 x 2.5cm area without leaking through. The higher the mm the rating, the greater the fabric's ability to prevent water leaking through. Breathability ratings are measured by how much water vapour can be transferred (MVT) through a square meter of fabric in a 24-hour period. The higher the number indicated the more breathable the jacket or fabric will be. Breathability is measured in g/m2/ 24 hours.
  • First Ascent DWR Coating

    A DWR coating is applied to improve the water repellency of the garment. DWR assists by beading water off the fabrics surface, increasing the water-resistance of the jacket.

  • First Ascent Vapourtex

    This breathable and lightweight waterproof fabric is used for selected First Ascent outerwear and activewear garments. Garments which bear a Vapourtex Fabric label are waterproof, keeping you protected during moderate rain conditions. Look out for seam-sealed garments, these garments will provide you with the highest level of coverage in wet weather conditions.

"Goes everywhere with me when I see rain predicted"

Absolutely brilliant rain jacket that I use for trail running and the odd hike. Especially handy when carrying a light pack as it folds up to the size of my fist. Breathes well but it does have that clammy feel of a pure shell jacket that isn't lined - but other brands jackets seems to feel like that too so it doesn't bother me.

"Not just another running 'rain coat'"

Its uniqueness begins with its aesthetic appeal and standout colour-way. Its light-weight feel makes cruising the trails effortless while offering you the ultimate amount of protection from the elements. It is a raincoat that consists of simple features, but a complex offering, with a perfect runnable result.
