On a 3-layer fabric a lining serves as a protective layer that lifts the membrane from the surface of your skin for increased comfort and performance.
Our waterproof-breathable membranes are covered in billions of misroscopic pores which keep water droplets out but let small water vapor molecules (sweat and body moisture) escape.
The face fabric serves as a protective layer with DWR treatment that helps water to bead up and roll off the fabric without saturating the jacket.
