Re: Re: A Visual Paradigm for Windshirts - Multiple Axis of Understanding
Bill, Rain-proof shells have a requirement for a minimum hydrostatic head of 1,500 mm H2O; they are not required to move aerobic level moisture levels to the outside. To achieve this, the most c...

RAB Alpine jacket CFM mystery solved?
I was curious as to why the “coffee filter” air permeability tests that Wim Depondt conducted on a NEW RAB Alpine seemed to indicate comparable breathability to the RAB Boreas. Wlm Depondt test...
