The Core level of performance from Dry.Q garments. Offers exceptional waterproof-breathability and durability as a result of the unique method of manufacturing: no pre-finished fabrics are used; instead, each Dry.Q Core fabric is engineered layer by layer, combining face and backing materials with different benefits to make the best jacket for the climate.
Ripstop stops rips!
Ripstop fabrics are fabrics woven with special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. Used in sails, hot air balloons, kites, and parachutes (disclaimer: jacket will not work as a parachute… or at least hasn’t been tested to).
Fully Taped Seams
With fully taped (or sealed) seams, every possible seam in the garment has been sealed up with a waterproof tape to prevent water and snow seeping through the stitching, so absolutely no liquid makes its way into your gear.

Perfect for putting in the bottom of your bag in case it rains, super light so you don't notice it's there. Comfortable, waterproof and breathable. Obviously being a thin 2.5L thin shell that is super light, I wouldn't recommend it for situations where you need good durability, go for a thicker and heavier 3L jacket if you need that. Serves it's purpose well though as a light waterproof shell.
