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.

"Vapourstretch Rain Jacket"

Super impressed with this rain jacket's ability to keep me dry. It's nice and lightweight, so its no hassle to take it on and off again as the rain stops. The hood moulded perfectly to my head, so no annoying water droplets creeping in by my neck and down my back.
