If a fabric or product is classified as water-repellent it means it will repel water but is not impervious to it, or put in another way, there is a level of water pressure it can withstand before leaks start to appear. Water-repellent jackets can prevent moisture and short rain showers getting through, as water molecules, due to the impregnation of the outer fabric, evaporate and penetration of moisture is prevented, for example, by wind or extreme pressure on the material. Regular impregnating of the material preserves the water-repellent qualities.
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.
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.
