This 150-denier Trilobal® polyester safety wear has been lined with polyurethane (PU) to provide water-resistance. The manufacturer grants this product a waterproof rating of 5,000 mm, i.e. it can withstand the pressure of a 5 m water column. A waterproof rating is granted when a material has been tested under the pressure of a cylinder filled with water, in this case, 5 m high of water. This height defines the limit at which the material stops being resistant and water starts passing through.

All seams have been taped and heat-sealed. This lightweight and flexible raincoat is ideal for occasional use. It is recommended for any worker surrounded by motorized vehicles: school crossing guards, drivers, transport workers, etc.

Reflective stripes and visibility:
This water-resistant coat has been provided with silver retroreflective stripes, each one measuring 50 mm (2 in.) in width. This raincoat has two front vertical stripes, back X-shaped stripes, one horizontal stripe around the waist, and one stripe around each arm.

Fluorescent orange is quite visible during daylight and in bright artificial lighting conditions. In most cases, it ensures a high contrast with most backgrounds. However, bright orange is less visible at night and in poor lighting conditions, be it natural or artificial, e.g. at dawn or dusk.

Silver retroreflective stripes are the most visible there is in poor lighting conditions, be it natural or artificial, since they reflect the light toward the light source (flashlight, automotive headlamp, etc.). Therefore, they offer greater protection at dawn, dusk, and night. Reflective bands won’t, however, increase visibility during daylight.

Design:
This raincoat features a full front zipper with plastic teeth fully protected by a hook and loop flap. Both sleeves are also equipped with hooks and loops plackets to adjust their opening. The wide style of this coat allows one to easily wear warm clothes underneath while still allowing a good airflow. To ensure breathability, four flaps protected openings were designed on the front and back, and two sealed large pockets were added at the front. The snap-off hood has an elastic drawstring for better adjustment, and may be detached from the collar. There is a mesh lining on the inside upper back for added comfort. This raincoat is not flame-resistant.

This PU lined Trilobal® polyester raincoat is said to be manufactured with a 150-deniers yarn; in layman’s terms, it is lightweight but offers an effective protection, thanks to Viking™ patented weaving. By definition, 150 deniers refer to the weight in grams of 9,000 m of the yarn used to make this coat, that is, 150 deniers equal 150 g. The manufacturer, Viking®, is unable to provide the polyurethane liner’s thickness. However, he ensures that Trilobal® polyester offers a good resistance to wear and tear.

Regarding the term Trilobal®, it refers to the type of woven fabric. It strongly resembles the oxford cloth which is widely used in the industry, namely the apparel industry. Trilobal® weaving is said to be four times more resilient than the oxford which consists in interlacing a warp thread (horizontal line) and a weft thread (vertical line) to create a basket weave structure. Indeed, Trilobal® consists of a triple twined polyester thread that creates a cross-section of fibres at regular intervals to form cells. These cells significantly increase the tensile strength of the garment effectively preventing tears from expanding to the next cell.

Water-resistance:
Polyurethane-lined waterproof safety wear is usually worn by workers who may be exposed to remote risks of chemical splashes. PU is lightweight and porous; it’s thus ideal to manufacture light and breathable workwear. Yet, during heavy rains and windstorms, PU tends to get waterlogged and lose all its water-resistant property. Once overloaded, polyurethane lets water leach into the raincoat under any pressure, e.g. by leaning on something or bending over.

Maintenance:
This raincoat should always be machine-washed in a delicate setting with cold or lukewarm water, and a gentle soap. Never use bleaching agents or fabric softeners on this coat. It should also be air-dried in a sheltered spot out of direct sunlight. Never tumble dry, iron or dry clean this raincoat.
