The degrees of warmth level thermal markings are indicative. They have been prepared keeping in mind that underneath the shell layer, mid- and base layers will be worn according to the weather - the colder it is, the more warm layers will be chosen. An average time spent outdoors with this guidance is approximately an hour. If you plan to do sports / play actively, choose lighter mid-layer clothing and/or lighter outerwear.No flakes:
shell/mid-season product, no insulation.One flake:
light wadding, fleece or light down.Two flakes:
warm waddign or warm down.Three flakes:
extremely warm wadding, pearl wadding or fluffy down.
All Reima fabrics or products marked with drop symbols are waterproof. The waterproof level is indicated with water columns which tell how much water pressure the fabric endures in thickness, before water begins to pass its surface. The thickness of the water mass / pressure is stated in mm.Water column over 3 000 mm:
Protects against rain for some time.Water column over 5 000 mm:
Protects against heavy rain, too.Water column over 8 000 mm:
Is suitable for both heavy rain but also sitting on wet.Water column over 12 000 mm:
For extreme conditions. Protects in active outings in wet surroundings and in heavy rain, all-day.
Reima measures durability with a hardcore Martindale test where abrasion resistance of fabrics is tested with sand paper. Our indicated figures are not comparable with the ones of upholstery fabric testing, as they are resulted by using a woolen cloth, not sand paper. For each product we choose the best suitable and durable fabric, according to the purpose of use. Particularly durable fabrics are given a separate arrow symbol with the Martindale test value. If a product does not have this symbol, the durability measured with Martindale is less than 30 000 cycles, and possible test result indicated in the material information.Abrasion resistance over 30 000 cycles Martindale:
Very good durability, suitable for casual pants and durable jackets.Abrasion resistance over 50 000 cycles Martindale:
Excellent durability, suitable for pants and lower parts of overalls.Abrasion resistance over 80 000 cycles Martindale:
Extremely durable fabric, usually used as reinforcement material and in our most durable pants.
With lab tests verified UV sun protection indicates how much longer a child can play in the sun without the delicate skin to burn underneath the clothing. We measure the UV cut using the standard AS/NZS 4399:1996.UV cut 20+
prevents 95% of ultraviolet radiation.UV cut 30+
prevents 96,7% of ultraviolet radiation.UV cut 40+
prevents 97,5% of ultraviolet radiation.UV cut 50+
prevents 98% of ultraviolet radiation.
Breathability level is informed for those fabrics that are functional: meaning they keep water out, yet allow moisture to be transferred to outer layers. Breathability can be measured by different standards. We at Reima use our own method, which is comparable to the ISO 15496 standard.Breathability at least 3 000 g/m2/24h:
The product is somewhat breathable and suitable for everyday outings and light rain.Breathability at least 5 000 g/m2/24h:
The product is breathable and suitable for playing outside.Breathability at least 7 000 g/m2/24h:
The product is very breathable and suitable for active playing/sports.
