8000 mm Water Column & 8000 g/m2/24 h Breathability with seam-seals
A seam-sealed jacket featuring an outer fabric with a water column rating of 8000 mm and 8000 g/m2/24 h Breathability. This jacket will keep you dry in moderate to heavy rain conditions, whilst still providing you with comfort and breathability.Waterproof ratings are based on a fabrics ability to withstand a water column height (8000mm) over a 2.5 x 2.5cm area without leaking through. The higher mm the rating, the greater the fabrics 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.
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.
This breathable and lightweight waterproof fabric is used for selected First Ascent outerwear and activewear garments. Garments which bear a Vapourtex Fabric mark 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.

"Men's Submerge Rain Jacket (Willow color)"
I have used my Submerge rain jacket on a few hikes, and its safe to say that it ticks all the relevant boxes and it is a great jacket for its price. I normally struggle to keep my sweating at bay when hiking in a rain jacket, but the Submerge jacket is the first rain jacket which has not given me any problems in that department. And to top it off, it comes in great colors.
