Carhartt Men's Rockford Rain Defender Jacket
About this deal
The Gore-Tex membrane is a man-made material that has billions of pores in one square inch (yes, you read that correctly) and each pore is about 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, making it absolutely impossible for water to penetrate. Another great feature of Gore-Tex is that it breathes pretty well for being waterproof. Rubber Along with being waterproof, this coat is also windproof. On the days when the sky is gray, and wind whipping, this is the perfect coat to layer over-top of your sweatshirt to keep you dry and warm. Sizing Note* Carhartt are more generously sized, you may need to consider dropping down a size from your traditional workwear clothing. Polyester is similar to nylon in that it can be water-resistant when tightly woven together. Similar to nylon, it also is breathable and allows air flow to pass through, keeping you cooler. A polyester garment will also need to be treated with a water-repellent in addition to being tightly woven. The Rain Defender® coating on Carhartt clothing is a water-repellent technology, meaning all Rain Defender® garments are built to withstand light rain - on the job and off.
