It is made of various materials, Poly-nylon being the main fabric. This advanced material offers excellent resistance to abrasion. On the outside, it has a water repellent polyurethane coating that is a direct complement to the 100% waterproof and breathable membrane that is located inside the jacket. The fixed liner is fully microperforated and is placed between the Waterproof membrane and the outer fabric.

Also in the interior we find a thermal lining of 80 grams, removable by zippers and push buttons. The lining is long sleeve and provides considerable protection against the cold.
