Novadry re-creates storm conditions in its weather simulator. Under these conditions, after 4 hours under a torrential rain shower of 100 L/hr/sqm, our garment still kept the user dry. To give you an idea of what this means, the world record for 4.5 hours of precipitation was 174 L/hr/sqm in the USA, unmatched since 1942 (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, USDC), and when it rains in Paris, the average rainfall is 2 L/hr/sqm (www.Paris.fr).

Machine wash your Men's Essential waterproof oilskin at 30°C. Turn inside-out and fasten rip-tabs. Choose a long rinse and gentle spin cycle. Line dry if possible. Occasional tumble drying on low for a short period of time will improve the water repellent treatment. To reactivate the water repellent treatment, you can also warm iron the fabric at a maximum temperature of 140°C or apply the Tribord re-waterproofing spray.
Store in a dry place, but do not leave NOVADRY® garments on a heat source such as a radiator, as this may damage the breathable membrane or coating.
Novadry's exclusive Levant component is guaranteed to keep you dry even in a downpour. In the rain simulator, the oilskin spent 4 hours under the equivalent of a 100 L/hr/sqm shower without the tiniest drop getting through the product. The component's waterproofing is guaranteed to withstand more than 4,000 mm of water pressure. All seams are fully taped.
Protection of documents and accessories:
Inside pocket with rip-tab strip for safe storage of papers and accessories.
The hood is fitted with an adjustment tab at the back of the head to adjust the height of visor to your head and to protect you from the elements.
The cuffs have rip tabs so that you can adjust the tightening at the wrist.
Two large hand pockets let you protect your hands from the wind and rain and store your accessories if necessary.
The central spiral zip is combined with a flap that has a drainage channel to ensure an optimum waterproof seal.
What is a waterproofing test or "shower test"?
Approved test where the garment is placed under a shower simulating different weather conditions. All our products are certified 100% waterproof having been tested for 4+ hours in rain of 100 L/hr/sqm to 450 L/hr/sqm depending on the product use. To put this into perspective, the highest recorded rain fall was in the USA in 1942, when 174 L/hr/sqm fell over 4.5 hours (NOAA). The average rainfall in Paris is 2 L/hr/sqm (www.Paris.fr)
Score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. For more information, visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
