Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) Finish - Patagonia's proprietary durable water repellent fabric finish, Deluge® DWR, lasts substantially longer than a standard DWR's. Garments with the Deluge® DWR finish have like-new repellency after years of extensive use.
H2No® - this barrier is Patagonia's standard for 100% waterproof and breathable protection. H2No® is created by adding a waterproof and breathable laminate or coating to a high performance protective fabric. This fabric package blocks wind and water on the outside while allowing water vapor generated by your body to escape.
