Following Microsoft’s announcement to reduce support for Internet Explorer 11 even further, along with their recommendation to switch to Microsoft Edge, we, too, have now decided not to support this browser any longer. This was a conscious decision, on the one hand in order to protect you and your data, and on the other to ensure that we can implement new technologies that Internet Explorer 11 does not support.

What does moisture vapour transmission (breathability) mean?

Moisture vapour transmission (breathability) is an important attribute for waterproof clothing.

The moisture vapour transmission is denoted by the “Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate” (MVTR), and is given in g/m²/24h. This value indicates how much moisture vapour will pass through a square metre of fabric in a 24-hour period (g/m2/24).
This means:
the greater the MTVR value, the better the moisture vapour transmission rate and therefore the breathability.
