More Info on the Operative from DC
Howdy! Mike from DC Shoes checking in to provide a little more detail regarding the Operative jacket, along with some education on how the Sympatex Collection provides superior waterproofing and breathability.
The Operative jacket is the pinnacle of jackets offered by DC. Rated at 45K waterproofing, the Operative packs down into a small travel bag that is included in a hidden stash pocket. 3M Thinsulate paneling helps keep the body warm without the bulk or weight of a traditional heavy fill. An army of pockets are made with accessibility at the forefront, with power straps at the front zip to provide an adjustable fit. The Operative is constructed with stretch fabric to give maximum maneuverability and comfort.
Stormproofing of the Operative jacket is made with the use of Sympatex in DC's pinnacle outerwear pants, jackets and bibs. Sympatex is a recycled membrane that provides industry leading waterproofing and breathability. Sympatex has the unique ability to breathe dynamically - Which means the higher the physical activity, the more efficient it works, keeping you dry and warm.
