Our Microlite Bonded Jackets are tough and waterproof. The Microlite fabric on the outer surface offers an extremely tough abrasion resistant surface that is ultra-quiet in the bush when pushing through scrub. It has been treated with a DWR water repellent finish to help with water retention and runoff on the outer surface. The middle layer being our exclusive Hydrotech membrane is the key component to the fabric. The finished test results for this 3 layer combination of 1) Microlite Outer, 2) Hydrotech Membrane, 3) Internal Tricot gauze has a breathable rating of 20,500 gm/24h and a waterproof rating of 23,500mm. The internal protective gauze lining has been treated with an antimicrobial treatment before bonding to help combat natural body odours and also protect our Hydrotech membrane. All seams are finished with our own high quality seam seal tape and tested to withstand a minimum of 3500psi during the final QC process.
