New fabric developed by Ciao Milano. Soft durable flowing fabric that is not only 100% water proof but extremely rich looking.  Looks like a million dollars. Same style, hardware, specs and fit with zip in pouch hood as the famous Tess style. 

 

Care Instructions: Best results for washing rain jackets and down items: Enclose your item in a pillow case and tie the end of the pillow case in a knot. Delicate wash cold water. Put pillow case and tumble dry. Dry clean or hand wash, line dry.  On down product you might want to add a couple of tennis balls in the pillow case.  

Please Note: The difference between water resistance and water proof simply is water resistance protects you in a light rain.  You will get drenched in a down pour after 1 minute.  Water proof means you can sit in down pour forever and not get wet. 

Size Chart: XS- 0-2, S- 2-4, M- 6-8, L- 10-12, XL- 12-14. Depending on bust size could go up one size.

 

Water-Resistant Jackets:

  • Level of Protection: Water-resistant jackets provide a basic level of protection against water. They are designed to repel water to some degree but not completely. This means they can handle light rain or drizzle for a short period.
  • Construction: These jackets are often made of tightly woven fabric or coated with a treatment that repels water on contact. However, the seams and zippers might not be sealed.
  • Breathability: Generally, water-resistant jackets offer better breathability compared to waterproof jackets, making them suitable for active use where the wearer might sweat.
  • Suitability: Ideal for light precipitation and everyday use. They are suitable for activities where you don't expect to get soaked but might encounter occasional splashes or light rain.

Waterproof Jackets:

  • Level of Protection: Waterproof jackets offer the highest level of protection against water. They are designed to completely prevent water from penetrating the jacket, keeping you dry in moderate to heavy rain and wet conditions.
  • Construction: These jackets are constructed with waterproof materials and technologies (like Gore-Tex or similar membranes). Additionally, their seams are sealed, and zippers are often waterproof or covered with protective flaps.
  • Breathability: While modern waterproof jackets strive to maintain breathability through various technologies, they are generally less breathable than water-resistant jackets. This can sometimes lead to moisture build-up inside the jacket from sweat.
  • Suitability: Best for outdoor activities in wet environments, such as hiking, biking, or any situation where you expect to encounter rain or standing water.

Choosing Between the Two:

The choice between water-resistant and waterproof jackets depends on the conditions you expect to face and the activity you plan to engage in. For light, everyday use where heavy rain is not a concern, a water-resistant jacket may be sufficient and more comfortable. For outdoor adventures or activities in environments where rain is likely or heavy, a waterproof jacket is essential to stay dry and protected.

Each type has its advantages, and the decision should be based on your specific needs, considering factors like the climate, activity level, and personal preference for breathability versus water protection.
