What is the meaning of water resistance in children’s outerwear?
The water resistance measures how waterproof a material is. The higher the water column pressure, the more waterproof is the jacket, suit or trousers. The water resistance indicates the water pressure the material can withstand before water penetrates through the fabric. Meaning that the specification indicates the limit from which a material becomes permeable to water. Depending on what kind of outerwear your child needs, whether it is for the everyday trip to school or playing and climbing in the forest, you can find that for some activities a high water resistance is more important than others.
Information on the water resistance of the individual products can be found in every single product page. The meaning of water resistance values:
Less than 2.000 mm - not waterproof.
Over 3.000 mm - for light rain showers.
Over 5.000 mm - suitable for a few hours in moderate rain.
Over 8.000 mm - suitable for several hours in heavy rain.
Over 10.000 mm - for long stays in heavy rain and snow.
Over 15.000 mm - not required in normal European weather conditions.
What is the meaning of breathability in children’s outerwear?
The term breathability is a term for water vapor permeability. Breathability describes how quickly body heat or water vapor can be transported outside through one square meter of material within 24 hours. The water vapor is measured in grams and given as g/ m2. The higher the value, the more breathable the outerwear. Especially when the child is playing in their outerwear, breathability is important to prevent the child from sweating even when playing and running around. Thus, breathable outerwear ensures a comfortable, dry climate and prevents intense sweating and overheating.
The importance of breathability values when playing:
Over 2.000 g / m2 - if the child does not sweat.
Over 5.000 g / m2 - if the child is actively playing and sweats little.
Over 8.000 g / m2 - if the child is actively playing for several hours.
