eVent FABRIC TECHNOLOGY

For OFS800™, extreme breathability and waterproofness was the priority. It is provided by a unique composite of eVent® membrane technology enabling best in class breathability with the ability to dynamically regulate temperature through fast moisture evaporation. Used by military institutions world-wide this material technology is not only highly breathable but incredibly robust, ensuring the garment is durable enough withstand the rigours of offshore sailing and provide extended waterproofness across the usable life of the garment.

The critical difference between eVent® technology and traditional breathable waterproof fabrics is the Direct Diffusion technology with millions of microscopic pores built into the proprietary membrane that instantly begin venting water vapour (sweat) that builds up inside your gear during activity.

This technology utilises a unique composite of materials to provide unrivaled breathability. Unlike other technologies, it doesn’t need to get wet to work. It is a ‘dry system’ that allows eVent® fabrics to be fully waterproof and fully breathable – keeping you dry and comfortable in the widest range of temperatures and conditions.

Counted on by military, police, fire and a myriad of professionals around the globe, eVent® Protective technology provides not only a barrier of defence against Mother Nature but critical protection against chemicals and hazardous substances. The Direct Diffusion technology features proprietary bi-component technology built to withstand repeated exposure to the weather and hazardous substances.

 

USAGE CARE

  • After use, rinse with fresh, clean water – then drip dry in the shade until thoroughly dry.
  • Do not store when wet.
  • After intense use or 6-12 months of casual use, wash using a detergent specifically designed for technical waterproof clothing. Follow instructions on label.

WASHING CARE

After washing, allow to dry completely in the shade and then place the garments in a clothes dryer on high heat for 15 minutes or iron fabric using medium heat (do not iron prints and do not apply excess heat to the garment seams). The application of heat will help to reactivate the water repellency of the fabric.
