Waterproof Ratings

How waterproof a garment is will depend on its waterproof rating.  Waterproof Ratings are determined using a Hydrostatic Head Test and are used to ensure the product meets the British Standard (which must be more than 1,500mm). 

In a Hydrostatic Head test, the fabric is pulled tight under a 1 inch diameter sealed tube of water. This is then observed over 24 hours to see how many millimetres of water the fabric can withstand on top of it before it soaks through. The level at which water starts to come through the fabric is the hydrostatic head, which is measured in mm.The higher a jacket’s waterproof rating, the longer the fabric will remain waterproof for.

PSI (pounds per square inch) is another way of rating waterproofness. To be classed as fully waterproof, the product has to have a minimum of 3 PSI by British Standard

 

Rating Resistance Weather
0 - 1500 mm Water resistant Very light rain
1500 - 5000 mm Waterproof Light to average rain
5000 mm Very waterproof Moderate to heavy rain
10000 mm Highly waterproof Heavy rain

 

Products with a rating of 1,500mm to 2,000mm are suitable for everyday use in light rain, whereas a product with a rating of 5000mm to 10,000mm is suitable for just about all weather conditions so is great for tackling the worst of the winter weather around the yard. These higher rated jackets will also be breathable.
