This poncho is waterproof thanks to the durability and coating of its fabric and sealed seams. A fabric's waterproofing is determined by measuring its resistance to the pressure exerted by a water column, measured in mm (test based on ISO 811 standard). Our component is resistant to the pressure from 2,000 mm of water. The finished product is approved in a shower test in the lab, where we recreate the conditions of an average downpour: 60 L water per square metre per hour for 2 hours.
Hydrophilic coating (RET = 12): reduces build up of condensation inside clothing.To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard).The lower its resistance, the more the fabric lets water vapour produced by the body escape, and the more breathable it is. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric. 9 < RET < 12 = highly breathable fabric. 12 < RET < 20 = breathable fabric. RET > 20 = slightly or not breathable fabric.
This product's main fabric is "Ripstop". It is a synthetic fabric with a reinforced woven structure that limits wear while keeping the product breathable and protecting it from getting snagged or torn. We carry out several tests such as resistance to wear, rubbing and ageing to ensure that the fabric's properties, behaviour, thickness and appearance, etc. are not affected by repeated washing.
COMPATIBILITY WITH LIGHTS
This product has two points, on the front and back, for attaching a VIOO CLIP, an LED light that clips on anywhere and unclips in an instant.
With a red or white light that can be used in continuous or flashing mode, you are clearly visible from up to 110 m away. The battery (9 hours in flashing mode, 4½ hours in continuous mode) is easy to charge using a USB cable (sold with the VIOO Clip).
Useful poncho/rain jacket combo but not brilliant.

Useful item but rather heavy, awkward to unpack and re-pack and less than elegantly designed. Doubtless this is waterproof and durable but the combination of inelegant, heavy, and a little over-priced does not really recommend it fully.
