The weather protection coating is applied to the front of the fabric on all Armadillo Scooterwear jackets.
As a rule, the coatings are microporous, which mean that the pores are large enough to allow passage of moisture vapour molecules from the skin but too small to allow rain through. The moisture vapour transmission is a physical process that occurs as a result of the temperature and pressure differential that exists between the internal and external environment.
Coating technology is used for all the Armadillo Scooterwear performance levels. The coasting exhibits the customary waterproof and windproof performance but is in addition, air permeable. It therefore works like a filter, allowing air to pass through but preventing rain penetration. The air exchange accelerates the physical process of moisture vapour transmission through the coating
