    The Downpour Eco is a next-generation shell for walking, hiking and weekend escapes
    With ultra-sustainable Pertex® Revolve fabric, it’s the perfect way to embrace the Great Outdoors without leaving a footprint
    Soft, lightweight, comfortable and practical, it is tailor-made for challenging 3 season treks and rainy days in the hills
    Built from recycled 2.5-layer Pertex® Revolve fabric with a fluorocarbon-free DWR treatment, the Downpour Eco is a monopolymer waterproof jacket
    It uses a polyester outer and membrane, which means that, in addition to being 100% recycled, it also has the potential to be recycled at the end of its life much more easily than waterproof fabrics made from multiple polymer layers.
    Adjustable hem and cuffs and a pair of deep-venting pit zips enable you to tweak the fit and ventilation as conditions demand
    It features a pair of zipped handwarmer pockets large enough for a map, alongside an integrated stuff sack for an easy carry
    The hood with polymer peak is two-way adjustable for reliable visibility and the zipped handwarmer pockets are large enough for a map.
    Light and packable, with a weight of just 280g, this is the go-to jacket for hikers who demand more sustainable gear as well as performance.

    PERTEX® Shield Revolve 
    Conventional waterproof breathable fabrics are constructed from multiple different polymer layers
    - nylon, polyurethane, polyester and fluoropolymers - laminated into a multi-material fabric.
    These fabrics are very difficult to recycle at the end of the product’s life due to the major challenges of separating out the different polymers into their relevant waste streams.
    Pertex® Shield Revolve™ fabrics are mono-material laminates, each layer of the fabric is made from a single polymer -  recycled polyester.
    A face fabric woven from recycled polyester yarns combined with a waterproof breathable recycled polyester membrane and an optional recycled polyester backer.
    The mono-material composition means Pertex® Shield Revolve™ fabrics are much easier to recycle at the end of a garment’s life.
    This keeps the material in a closed-loop, minimising the waste of resources and reducing the overall environmental impact of the fabric.
    Waterproofness Ratings Guide :
    5,000mm : This is the minimum rating for a jacket to be called rainproof, however, it won’t stand up to much more than a shower over a period of time
    10,000mm - 15,000mm :In this range a jacket will withstand most downpours  but will soak through over time if subjected to pressure (see below)
    20,000mm plus : The rating you should look for if you plan to be out in all conditions
    Rab Breathability Guide (MVTR): mm/m²/24 hours
    Very Poor <1,000
    Modest 1,000-5,000
    Good 5,000-10,000
    Great 10,000-15,000
    Exemplary 20,000+
    Durable Water Repellency, or DWR, is a technology that we use throughout our range of waterproofs
    DWR causes water to bead on the surface of the fabric so that instead of soaking into the garment's outer fabric, the rain simply rolls off
    By reducing the amount of standing water on the garment’s outer, the breathability of the fabric is maintained and it remains light and comfortable to wear
    After prolonged use you may find that the DWR’s performance begins to diminish. This can be refreshed by applying a DWR treatment after washing
    Balancing weight, waterproof, durability and breathability.
    When buying a jacket, it’s important to consider the trade-off between weight, waterproof durability, and breathability.
    If you’re travelling fast and light or only use your waterproof for occasional bursts of rain in warm weather, it can be worth investing in a lighter garment which will often pack down smaller and be more comfortable to wear
    These jackets are not designed to be used with backpacking or larger fully loaded daypacks
    However, if you’re in the habit of really abusing your gear then it’s worth investing in a product that has a more durable face fabric that can take repeated punishment.
    These garments are often less breathable but will be durably waterproof for longer than their lighter weight counterparts
    They also tend to have more technical features such as hood design, pockets, reinforcements etc
