BreatheDry Waterproof Smock by Arbortec
Arbortec's Breathedry waterproof smock is a lightweight, breathable, pullover jacket built with the arborist in mind.
Extra-long back sheds water, and high collar with waterproof zipper and neck protector prevents water intrusion. An adjustable hood is big enough to fit over a helmet, and stows away in the collar when not needed. Hood has a wired peak, a bungee volume adjuster draw cord, and a large hook & loop storm flap.
Sleeves have inner soft cuffs with thumb loops, plus hook & loop tab fasteners to keep the cuffs watertight. A large breast pocket with waterproof zipper can take a smart phone, and further large pouch pocket can be accessed by long side zippers. The pouch pocket also acts as a ventilation point, with mesh panels inside. Zippered ventilation ports in the armpits and access zipper at the bottom of each side - useful for accessing your harness.
As a fully waterproof and breathable jacket, the Arbortec smock conforms to EN343 Class 3 standards and incorporates an increased back length to shed water. The garment features a high collar with a waterproof zipper, inner placket, and neck protector.

Arbortec garment fabric has a solid structure that physically stops water from passing through the membrane. The fabric breaths by absorbing and dissipating sweat through the diffusion of water vapour molecules.
If the fabric membrane becomes clogged with grease, dust, and dirt it is very likely to allow moisture in and leak.
Arbortec recommends washing your smock with NikWax TechWash following the guidelines on the NikWax packaging, to clean off the grease and grime, followed by a re-wash with NikWax TX. Direct to help restore water-repelling and receive Breathability.
