Concurve water-resistant cycling wind jackets on this page: Size XXL in yellow


Concurve Balance water-resistant XXL yellow cycling wind jacket. New, $100.00

Part# 24460

Made by Gore of Gore Windstopper fabric.

Outdooresearch.com explains Windstopper fabric: "WINDSTOPPER® is a laminate, which means it is sandwiched together with other textile layers to create a single fabric. The first layer is the WINDSTOPPER® membrane. This ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluorethylene) film is a megalight, incredibly versatile polymer that has 1.4 billion micropores in a single square inch of the membrane. These micropores are 900 times larger than water vapor molecules, which allows water vapors to escape nearly unhindered. The ePTFE film is the most basic part of WINDSTOPPER®; but it’s performance features are enhanced by what’s stuck on one or both sides of it. The ePTFE membrane is bonded to another fabric (often a nylon face) and, in some applications, a third against-the-skin layer.  The result is a windproof fabric that is highly breathable.

"While WINDSTOPPER® is windproof, highly breathable and water resistant, it is not waterproof. GORE-TEX®, like WINDSTOPPER®, is a laminate, but the difference is the GORE-TEX® membrane has much smaller pores, with over nine billion pores per square inch. The smaller pores completely prevent moisture from penetrating from the outside, making GORE-TEX® fully waterproof and windproof, but less breathable than WINDSTOPPER®."
