For those who tend to face the weather change in the outdoors for a longer period of time, HOMI TheHood Pro is designed to offer extra protection, so you’ll always be prepared for whatever that’s coming.
Integrating far infrared technology in the inner part of the jacket, HOMI TheHood keeps you toasty and helps blood circulation, providing optimum comfort wherever you go.
As far infrared rays are low in transmittance, the higher the emissivity, the better the effect. The lining of HOMI TheHood can absorb, emit, and reflect far infrared rays from the human body. The ray can go through the skin to resonate and generate heat, which boosts blood flow and relieves muscle pain.
Our far infrared treatment and fabric have high emissivity of 92% under 20°C, meaning that the far infrared function has excellent performance under normal temperature, while other brands might boast a high emissivity but only under very high temperature that cannot be achieved during everyone’s daily life.
HOMI TheHood Pro is designed to handle all the difficult weather conditions without compromising comfort and style. The waterproof rating is a solid 20,000mm that keeps you dry under downpours for a long period of time. Numbers don’t lie, but we also know that they don’t tell the whole story.
Of all the waterproof jackets out there, we noticed that water doesn’t penetrate into the jackets, but it doesn’t really go away either. So the wearer is still far from being dry and fresh. This is why we spent months designing and upgrading our waterproofness!
Triple Layer Lamination
While waterproof jackets effectively keep the water out, it’s crucial to wick the moisture from your body to really keep you dry and comfortable. HOMI TheHood Pro is lined with 3 layers of laminates, making it waterproof, windproof and breathable at the same time.
The special fabric used for its lining has a similar fiber structure to Merino wool, which has a superb moisture vapor transmission rate of 20,000g/m²/24h, making HOMI TheHood Pro extremely breathable.
The far infrared treated lining generates warmth with the natural heat from your body without any use of battery. A thin layer of air is formed between the lining and the waterproof membrane, allowing great ventilation and wicking the moisture to make you comfortably dry inside out.
Rapid Flow™ Quick Dry System
What makes a jacket resistant to water depends on the waterproof membrane on the back of the fabric. So the fabric itself is not really waterproof, the added DWR coating can only keep away light showers, water will still saturate under a longer period of time and with higher water pressure. And when this happens, even your skin is not really wet, but the water absorbed will make your jacket heavy and less breathable.
Therefore we designed a unique drainage system Rapid Flow™ to quickly remove the moisture from the surface of the jacket and speed up the drying process to really make the wearer feel comfortable.
Rain usually hits the hood and drips from the entire brim, affecting the sight and making the face wet. HOMI TheHood Pro’s brim guides the water and avoids dripping from the middle . For more protection, you can also use the built-in face mask.
Brim: HOMI TheHood Pro’s brim has a folded design that forms a thin channel, collecting the rain to slide down from both sides and avoids the middle naturally.
To avoid rain going through the whole body before it leaves completely, we designed a rain deflection stripe at the chest as a block.
Chest: The rain stops at the deflection stripe and flows towards the armpit and goes away, reducing the chance of moisture saturation.
The water only drips from the upper back and with the rest of the area remaining dry.
Upper back: The upper back section is designed to be slightly stuck out on top of the fabric at the middle and lower back, allowing it to work like an umbrella.
Cuff and rim are the places where you get the most moisture accumulation. To wick the moisture, we created tiny holes with laser to let water drain through and make them dry faster.
Cuff and rim: The laser cut, tiny holes allow the moisture to leave the jacket fast, keeping this area dry effectively.
With the adjustable cuff, you can tighten it to avoid wind or water going in when venturing out, making HOMI TheHood Pro truly waterproof and windproof.
Needle stitching leaves small holes in the garment through which water can seep when worn in wet conditions. That’s why taping seams is also the key to complete waterproofness, making sure that there’s no missing spaces for water to get in.
Stay comfortably dry and keep your jacket long lasting with the watertight taped seams.
