Performance Features

  • 1000 mm Water Column & 3000 g/m2/24 h Breathability

    A jacket featuring an outer fabric with a water column rating of 1000 mm and 3000 g/m2/24 h Breathability. This jacket will keep you dry in light rain conditions, whilst still providing you with comfort and breathability.

    Waterproof ratings are based on a fabrics ability to withstand a water column height (1000mm) 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.
  • 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 XT-1 Softshell

    Softshell fabrics combine the insulation benefits of a soft fleece with the water & wind repellent benefits of a hard shell. Softshell fabrics are research inspired fabrics developed to move fast and light to simplify your wardrobe.

    Softshell fabrics are lightweight, durable, easy to wear and for the most part outperform a traditional hard shell, except in extended rainy conditions. XT-1 refers to a 3-layer garment for more extreme conditions, such as the cold and rain. The three layers are made up of a woven outer layer, a waterproof membrane and a fleece inner layer.

"Oracle XT-1 Softshell Jacket Review"

Impressive jacket, sheds light rain and an excellent wind blocker. Will be in my back for every fishing mission. Will have rated higher if it was locally made, even if it means a more expensive product.
