Ripstop tear-resistant nylon jacket with a fluorescent foldaway hood. It is waterproof, breathable and windproof and has a fleece lining and cotton padding for the sleeves. The heat-sealed stitching combines with the antigrip elasticated bottom and adjustable cuffs with Velcro strap to keep water out. The back features Slam's distinctive Drain Off cut and a reflecting band with the coordinates of the Lanterna lighthouse in Genoa. Two practical side pockets with water-repellent zips complete the jacket.
A breathable fabric allows the perspiration produced by physical activity to pass through it. The breathable nature of the fabric promotes biological breathability which allows body moisture to be expelled easily, thereby decreasing condensation from perspiration, increasing comfort. A breathable fabric measures the water vapor, expressed in grams, that crosses an area of 1 square meter in 24 hours (g/m2-day).
By windproof we mean that the fabric cannot be penetrated by strong winds. The windproof feature helps to maintain body heat, prevent sudden changes in temperature and increase comfort.
