Oakley Fireball Dwr Hoodie 2016
The Fireball DWR Hoodie is a regular fit, full zip hoody made from a cotton polyester mix that is treated with DWR to give it a degree of waterproofing. It can therefore be worn on the mountain as a thermal layer or as a soft outer garment with some functionality in town. The hoody also features a media-compatible pocket.
|MATERIALS||60% Cotton, 40% Polyester DWR brushed back fleece|

The DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish has become almost ubiquitous in the outdoor industry, and the satisfying water beading it provides has become the hallmark of a beautiful jacket. It is not strictly waterproof but will provide protection on it’s own against a light shower; however it does wear off so needs to be topped up from time to time. The DWR stops water from soaking into the outer layer of waterproof fabrics like Gore-Tex meaning they remain breathable and light in even in heavy rain.
