25% Increase in Hydrostatic Resistance
2x More Durable and Longer Lasting
5x More Resistant to Wetting
The Hydrostatic test measure the ability of a fabric to withstand water penetrating from pressure exerted from water accumulating on the fabric. The higher the number the more pressure required to push water through. The ability to withstand excessive water buildup on the fabric puts WeatherMAX 80 with HydroMax+ at a level well beyond other uncoated fabrics.
Severe Rain Test
The Bundesmann test is a test that mimics severe rain and measures how much water passes through the fabric and how much is absorbed by the fabric. WeatherMAX 80 with HydroMax+ clearly outperforms acrylic and solution dyed polyester in both categories, providing an amazing level of rain protection without use of a coating that would restrict breathability.
It is easy to make an outdoor fabric good at one or several areas of water resistance, it is another thing entirely to be exceptional in all 5 areas. WeatherMAX 80 with HydroMAX+ makes the historical step to doing just that – all with a minimal to no unsightly markoff and remaining soft and pliable – the things that have made WeatherMAX 80 a market leading favorite outdoor fabric.
