What is the waterproofing solution? Is this a DWR style, or a permanent, maintenance-free solution, like Columbia OutDry?

Asked by: Krash2
It is not a permanent waterproof layer like Columbia OutDry, but instead a 3 layer waterproof fabric with a DWR finish.

Hi there, does this act as a warm jacket along with it's other benefits? We travel often to either rainy or cold places and are looking for a solid rain/winter style jacket that is completely waterproof. Will this work for that? If not - what suggestions?

Asked by: shaunantle
​This jacket is not insulated and is not designed to keep you warm. However, if you can layer under with an insulating layer, it is a great choice for what you are looking for.
