Water-repellent treatment prevents water entering the fabric when it rains.
Quite a close-fitting cut. The jacket's inner volume allows you to wear it over a warm second layer such as a micro-fleece.
Thermal comfort and windproof
The wind causes the perceived temperature to decrease considerably.
With an outside temperature of 0° and 20 km/h winds, it will feel like the temperature is -10°.
"Windproof" components help eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect." They are very effective at reducing heat loss by creating a barrier against the wind.
Tightening at the bottom of the jacket with elastic cord and toggles
Tightening at the cuffs with velcro tabs
Water-repellent property of the component (not to be confused with waterproofing)
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its capacity to make water run off its surface without absorbing it.
This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight and breathable. The fabric is made water repellent by treating its outer surface, however this property may deteriorate with use.
In order to reactivate it, follow the guide:

Response of the brand
Thank you for your valuable review.
Trek 900 softshell is made to be used as a shell to block wind while Trekking. The price of this jacket is normally higher than our normal windproof jacket because of the component used in this. We use Merino wool fabric inside in this jacket so that it can be used while Trekking for several days without any bad odours.
However we take your feedback seriously as it will help us improve our products further.
