System guide

Our garments are divided into four different groups or "systems". Each garment system has its own specific properties. Labeling our products this way makes it easy for our customers to understand how each garment is designed and thus find a product that will meet their particular needs.

Level guide

For a quick and easy overview our garments are categorized in four different levels. We talk about Dry Level, Heat Level, Function Level and Breathable Level. Depending on the garment system group the number of levels varies.

Dry Level logotype
The Dry Level communicates the water column of the waterproof fabric and is only used in fully seam sealed Storm System garments. The Dry Level number is expressed in meters of water pressure the fabric can resist.
Heat Level logotype
The Heat Level stands for the garments ability to protect you against low temperatures. A high level number has a better ability to isolate the heat and keep your body warm then a low level number. What effects the level is the garments insulation volume, if it´s waterproof and/or windproof and how much of your body the garment covers.
Function Level logotype
The Function Level will tell you what functions each garment has and what they stand for.
Breathable Level logotype
The Breathable Level is achieved using waterproof and breathable fabrics. If a garment is using waterproof and breathable fabric but seams are not sealed this will result in a higher Level number then if it would have had sealed seams. As the seams will let air pass through. The other factor is the ability a waterproof fabric allows moisture vapor to be transported from the inside of the fabric to the outside. The Level number indicates how many kilograms that will pass through 1 m2 during 24 hours. The breathability can be measured in many different testing methods, at Didriksons we use the one called ASTM E-96 BW STANDARD. It’s important to also look at the garments function level when you are looking for a garment to be used when you are active as ventilations etc. help you to keep a good microclimate inside your protective shell.
