    What makes eVent better?

    The critical difference between eVent technology and traditional waterproof/breathable fabrics is the millions of microscopic pores built in to eVent's proprietary membrane that work instantly to vent water vapor (sweat) that builds up inside your apparel and footwear when you perform.

    This is called Direct Venting™ technology, and unlike other technologies, it doesn't need to get wet to work. It’s a 'dry system' that allows eVent fabrics to be fully waterproof and fully breathable – keeping you dry and comfortable in the widest range of temperatures and conditions.


    Direct Venting™ technology is engineered to keep you in the ‘dry zone’ – a steady state of temperature and humidity that reduces the wild swings our bodies go through to stay in balance during physical exertion.

    The result is that you’ll spend more time performing at your best and less time fussing with your gear. And when conditions are bad, that can make all the difference.

    Fabric Care

    More ways to care

    Your garment made with eVent fabrics may contain a durable water repellent finish (DWR) on the exterior of the fabric that serves as a first barrier to penetration of the fabric by external water. This DWR finish degrades over time and will occasionally need to be replenished. You will be able to tell when this water repellency has degraded because water will cease to bead up on the fabric. Even though the waterproof eVent membrane is still keeping the water from passing through the fabric, performance will be increased if you maintain the DWR finish with regular treatments. We suggest treating the DWR finish at the same time as your regular garment washings.

    How to wash your eVent garment

    Always follow the garment manufacturer’s care and use instructions. Below are general considerations for maintaining garments with eVent fabrics. Avoid heavy soiling, which could affect membrane performance temporarily. Thorough washing will generally maintain and restore product performance. Regular washing of your eVent garment will enhance product performance. Your garment may be machine washed in warm water (110F / 40C) with liquid detergent, and we recommend a second rinse to remove all traces of detergent from the fabric. We recommend you drip-dry your garment. Remember also to refer to the garment manufacturer’s guidelines. Do not use fabric softeners or bleach. Never dry-clean your garment. We also recommend that you avoid ironing the garment, but if you do, use the steam setting on no higher temperature than “warm”. At some temperatures, the heat from the iron can have a rejuvenating effect on the DWR finish but there is a greater potential for fabric damage if the iron is too hot.

    The Best Waterproof Shooting Jacket

    <p><span style="color: rgb(84, 141, 212);">A Review from Chandler Brown Wild Hare Shooting Gear Pro Staff:</span></p><p>The Hydro-Elite rain jacket is the best waterproof shooting jacket on the market. The dual cuffs keep water from running down your sleeve when mounting the gun, and the jacket breathes well with the large vents in the back and underarms. The feature setting the Hydro-Elite apart from the competition is the hood integrated into the collar; it is designed to tuck away into the collar but will not get in the way of your gun mount. The collar still keeps a good seal and comfortable fit, yet the hood easily folds out to function as a fully waterproof jacket while you are not shooting. The Hydro-Elite has definitely kept me shooting at my best even when conditions get tough.</p>
