    Waterproofness is an absolute measure.
    Either something is waterproof or it’s not. However, higher standards of waterproofing allow for more durability and a garment that will stay waterproof for longer.
    Rab use a water column or Hydrostatic Head test to find out how waterproof a fabric is. It measures a fabric’s ability to withhold water pressure.
    Imagine a very tall, over 30m, open-ended tube standing on the fabric and being slowly filled up with water.
    As more water is added, the pressure on the fabric will increase.
    The results are expressed as the height of a water column the fabric can withstand before it allows water to penetrate.
    For example a Hydrostatic Head (HH) from 1500mm (1.5m) to 30000mm (30m).
    The industry standard for a fabric to be classed as waterproof is 1500mm.
    Not having a 30 metre tube in their laboratory, for obvious practical reasons, Rab use a hydrostatic head machine that clamps a sample of fabric and then exerts water pressure using a pump to give them extremely accurate results.
    In the real world water pressure can manifest itself in several ways.
    From the obvious, the speed and size of rain droplets, to the straps of a backpack, a climbing harness or kneeling on the ground, these all exert a water pressure on the garment.
    Often it is at these points of contact that moisture can seep through the garment, if the right combination of materials and technologies have not been used.
    For example, sitting on wet ground exerts 1500- 2000mm of pressure whereas kneeling, in the same spot, could exert as much as 10,000mm due to the reduction in contact surface area.
    Remember, in all Rab waterproof garments they require a minimum HH rating of 10,000mm or above.
