Here is a simple explanation on how we measure the water repelling performance of our garments.

How Trespass Measure Waterproofing


Technology Explained.....
Basically if you imagine a single column of water held back by a piece of our Tres-Tex® fabric. Our waterproof reading is the height in millimetres this column would reach before starting to seep through. So, 5000mm is infact 5 meters of water held back by the fabric. Tres-Tex, Waterproof fabric

This new concept in fabric technology has an athletic form supported by stretch qualities that allow for a full range of body movements. It is soft to touch, flexible and very comfortable. Soft shell is suited to highly energetic pursuits. Moisture moves freely from your body to the outer environment, the high levels of breathability also improve drying times significantly making it comfortable over a wide range of weather conditions.


Lightweight, durable and soft lofted fibres trap and hold the heat generated by your body, giving you maximum freedom of movement allowing you to stay comfortable in the most arctic of conditions.

Designed for comfort and warmth from soft, light, breathable, anti-pill fleece, these garments are a versatile mid-layer. The special structure of Airtrap not only stretches to give you freedom of movement but creates airspaces that trap and hold your body heat.

Even with the most waterproof material in the world, severe conditions can lead to water ingress at the seams through the hundreds of needle holes made when stitching the garment together. By applying thermoplastic tape under heat and pressure, the seams are sealed to prevent moisture passing through.

Specially developed zippers that are designed to keep the water out thanks to a plasticised coating that overlaps the sides and teeth of the zip. This also means we can do away with excess material used in flaps and covers which, in turn, leads to a more streamlined, lightweight garment. Water Repellent Zippers
Snowbreaks are a must when the powder is chest deep, keeping the snow where it belongs, on the outside! They also provide a barrier against the wind, preventing annoying drafts. Some snowbreaks attach to your waist belt providing a total seal against the elements. Others are removable for your convenience. Snowbreak
For complete control of your personal environment, venting is as vital as good insulation. Your body sweats when active, when sweat cools, you get cold. With a variety of venting options you can dump excess body heat when needed. When it gets too cold or in deep snow, close off the vents and keep in the heat. Venting, temperature control
