What does waterproof (5000mm) mean?
This number is the measurement that is used to judge the level of waterproofness of a fabric. The test involves placing a long column on top of a sample of the garment's material, then filling it with water. The water level is increased until the fabric starts to leak. In this case, we have a brilliant 5000mm, or 5 metres worth of waterproofness on the Mac in a Sac 2.
What does breathable (5000gsm) mean?
The fabric is tested to determine how easy it is for water vapour to travel from the inside to the outside. A breathable jacket will be more comfortable to wear, and will keep you warmer as condensation doesn't have a chance to build up! The test is done by measuring the amount of water vapour (in grams) that pass through a 1 metre square of the fabric.
What are fully taped seams, and why are they important?
The stitching of the garment is normally a weak point of waterproof clothing, as the water can seep through the tiny holes. Fully taped seams use a heat-shrunk taping on our stitched seams, in order to eliminate leakage.
Where is the concealed hood?
The mac in a Sac 2 packaway jacket has a hood tucked into the collar. This means that you can keep it from getting in the way when its not too wet. You can also adjust the fit of the hood using neat little toggles.
What is a reversed zip?
For the Mac in a Sac 2 Jacket, they've taken zip development even further, by reversing it. This makes the zip surface much more flush to the outer fabric, and improves windproofing.
What is a Packaway?
Items that store into their own supplied stuff sack. 'Packaway' or 'Packable' jackets can be neatly stored in a daybag or briefcase when it's not raining.
Why do I need an adjustable hem / hood?
These features can be adjusted easily using the elasticated cords and spring-loaded.
