These garments are intended for use under harsh conditions. They need to be resistant to prolonged rain and hard wind. All Grade 1 garments are made using Gore-Tex® laminate. Manufacturer Gore laminates the membrane onto the outer fabric for us.
Gore tests both the lamination and the design of the garments. Garments in Grade1 are guaranteed rain and windproof. They also have guaranteed excellent breathability.
Some of Chevalier’s shell garments for mobile hunting or trekking are equipped
with water-repellent zips and openable, extra ventilation.
Garments in Grade 1 are Outland, Upland and Paclite.
