The best of Palm's team proven Atom jacket made into a new‚ simpler‚ tougher whitewater Dry suit. The new cut reduces the number of seams‚ positioning them to minimise wear. A flexible Masterseal entry zip‚ heavy duty double taped socks‚ and UK made latex seals are there to keep you dry.
The high performance 4-layer fabric is engineered for extended durability, extra waterproofness and great breathability. Supplex nylon 6 woven face fabric has a great soft feel and is highly durable. A DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment prevents the fabric from becoming waterlogged so that the fabric stays breathable. A hydrophobic, microporous polyurethane coating is applied to the face fabric. The pores are too small to allow water droplets to pass through, but large enough for water vapour to pass through to the outside air. A hydrophilic polyurethane membrane laminated to the hydrophobic coating transfers water vapour molecules along hydrophilic chains to the coating. The nylon 20 denier tricot mesh lining protects the waterproof membrane and disperses moisture to provide the largest surface area for moisture absorption and transfer. Waterproofness: 25,000 mm. Breathability: 4,000 g/m2/24hrs. Breathability tested by the A1 method.
The TiZip MasterSeal zip is pressure tested to 500 mbar, these zips are still watertight but are more flexible, making them more comfortable and easier to operate than brass coil zips. Made from thermoplastic polyurethane with extra strong plastic zipper teeth and a salt water resistant metal slider for long lasting performance in all environments.
A stretchy natural rubber Latex neck gasket inside the collar minimises water ingress, keeping the inside of the garment largely dry even when fully immersed underwater.
