Highlights of this range include:

 

Waterproof Ability

How waterproof something is will always depend on its waterproof rating, the higher an item’s waterproof rating, the more waterproof it is. For example, if a product has a waterproof rating of 20,000 it has been tested to withstand 20,000mm of water column pressure without leaking. 20,000 is currently our highest waterproof rating and can be found in our ULTRA range, this rating will keep you dry through all wet weather conditions for long periods of time.

 

Rating Resistance Weather
1,500 – 2,000 Waterproof Light To Moderate Rain
3,000 – 5,000 Very Waterproof Moderate Rain Or Shorter Periods In Heavy Rain
8,000 – 10,000 Highly Waterproof Heavy Rain
15,000 – 20,000 Extremely Waterproof Extremely Heavy Rain For Long Periods

Items like the Ultra Himalaya Extreme Waterproof Jacket,  Ultra Typhoon Mens Waterproof Overtrousers and Ultra Inca Mens Waterproof Tech Trouser are all between 15,000 –  20,000mm to keep you dry from head to toe.

Breathability

How breathable an item of clothing is affects how comfortable you will be on your activity. Breathable garments allow minuscule molecules of perspiration to escape from the inside while stopping rain from the outside sinking in. Moisture vapor transfer is measured in grams and is related to how much vapor can pass through the fabric in a 24 hour period. The higher the number, the more breathable your item will be. The Ultra Atlas Extreme Waterproof Jacket, Ultra Extreme Womens 3-Layer Over Trousers and Ultra Alpha Kids Waterproof Jacket all have a breathability rating of 4,000.
