The Halo-II Jacket is a full cut, waist length model (271/2â€ center back length measured from the neckline to the bottom of the back hem, size Large), with reversible feature for Hi-Vis safety requirements, zipper front and elasticized waistband. The jacketâ€™s nylon shell fabric has a waterproof/breathable barrier throughout the body, sleeves, and collar, and is fully factory seam-sealed. The jacket is completely lined w Hi-Vis Safety Yellow 100% polyester for a clean finish. This jacket is ANSI 107-2004 Class 3 Certified for high-visibility apparel.
Exterior Shell MaterialsAll jackets in the line except for the Echo Softshell and the Halo I Hi-Vis rain jacket, have a durable nylon shell that is coated with Durable Water Repellency (DWR) finish. The DWR coating helps to ensure that the jackets have less â€œwater take-upâ€ and provide â€œquicker dry timeâ€. In other words, the DWR coating keeps the water from soaking into the face fabrics of the jacket. The exceptions to the Nylon shell fabric are the shells for the Echo Softshell and the Halo I Rain Jacket. The Echo Softshell has a 100% Polyester Stretch Woven face and lining with a 100% Polyester Fleece interior lining. The Halo I Rain Jacket outer shell, the hi-vis yellow fabric, is 100% polyester. This is also true for the hi-vis yellow side of the Halo II reversible jacket, which is also 100% polyester.HALTâ„¢ (Highly Advanced Laminate Technology) Barrier Layered Waterproof-Breathable ConstructionThe Propper Defenderâ„¢ HALTâ„¢ barrier achieves waterproof-breathable performance in two ways depending on the jacket. Three of the jackets in the line have a 3-layer laminate membrane system and 3 of the jackets have a two-layer system. The Bravo â€œIkeâ€ style Duty Jacket, the Halo I Hi-Vis Rain Jacket with/drop Tail and the Delta Drop Panels use a 3-layer laminate system to achieve waterproof-breathable performance.
3-layer Laminate Membrane System
The 3-in-1 laminate membrane design uses a highly advanced laminate system to achieve waterproof breathable performance. The three layers in the laminate membrane system consist of: 1) The outside Nylon shell (Polyester shell for the Hi Vis); 2) a Polyester Film laminate; 3) A Nylon Tricot Backer Knit.
The Alpha Classic Duty Jacket, the Gamma Long Rain Jacket with Droptail and the Halo II Hi-Vis Reversible Duty Jacket have a 2-layer Performance Coating system to achieve waterproof breathable performance. The layers in this system include: 1) the outside Nylon shell; 2) A Polyurethane-based hydrophobic coating on the nylon; 3) A 100% Nylon interior lining on the Alpha Classic Duty Jacket and the Gamma Long Rain jacketâ€”the Halo II Reversible does not have a lining since itâ€™s Hi Vis side is the lining (Nylon outside, Polyester Hi-Vis side).
It should be noted that both HALT systems, the 3-layer laminate membrane and the 2-layer Hydrophobic coating system, provide excellent waterproof-breathable performance, and are both fully factory seam-sealed.
