This is a truly amazing, "cutting edge" composite fabric that helps keeps you dry from rain, and from perspiration. It's composite structure allows it to be waterproof and breathable at the same time.
The material consists of an outer nylon fabric that is semi-permeable to water (allows water to escape) , bonded to a special micro-porous urethane membrane that is only allows water in vapor form to pass through.
Here's how it works: the outer nylon material is coated with a material that makes it nearly waterproof, stopping water from the outside from soaking into the fabric. The inside micro-porous membrane is a specially formulated urethane, with microscopic holes throughout the material. The holes are so tiny, that water in liquid form, can not pass through them, and just beads on the surface. However, water in vapor form; like perspiration is vaporized by the heat of your body into particles many times smaller than droplets of liquid water, and is allowed to pass through the tiny holes in the membrane.
