Ripstop fabrics are fabrics in which thicker threads are woven in at intervals of 5 to 8 millimetres, resulting in increased tear resistance. If the material tears at one point, the ripstop property ensures that the material only tears up to the next thicker thread. Ripstop fabrics can be clearly recognised by their typical crosshatched threads structure
Denier is a unit of measurement. It is the ratio of mass or weight to length. Denier is the unit for the thickness of the thread or yarn, which is used in the production of fabrics. Fabrics with a higher denier (DEN) count tend to be thicker and more durable.
This product provides protection against ultraviolet radiation with a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor in fabric in clothing) 50+.
The water-and wind-resistant soft shell material provides good protection from the dangerous wind chill effect, which results from air getting through the material to the skin. Coated soft shells without membranes usually offer higher breathability but are less water-repellent. However, when being exposed to rain for several hours, one should in any case have a waterproof rain jacket in reserve. It is recommendable to fall back on a waterproof jacket during persistent rain. The seams of wind-resistant functional textiles are not welded or laminated, which distinguishes wind-resistant from windproof.
This product is (also) available in pony size. Ponies and Shetland ponies have a special exterior which requires specific equipment that is particularly tailored to their body dimensions. Aside from their low height, small hooves, a compact back as well as a short croup are often characteristic for different breeds of ponies.
Breathability refers to the ability of a man-made fibre or natural fibre to release the body's own water vapor. Breathable fabrics allow for quick drying already during use and thus prevent both heat build-up from the body under the fabric as well as cooling due to dammed up moisture.
