What are wholesale waterproof jackets?

Wholesale waterproof clothing requires to be waterproof, windproof, comfortable, and moisture permeable to ensure that people can keep their bodies dry, warm, and able to move freely in complex and harsh outdoor environments.

Fabrics classification of wholesale waterproof jackets:


According to different functions

It can be divided into two: 

(1) DWR jacket: It usually is the waterproof jacket with only the function of Durable Water Repellent. The water droplets will not easily penetrate into the coated fabric surface, forming water droplets on the fabric surface. Therefore, this kind of jacket can only be worn in light rain.

(2) Waterproof jacket: It usually is the waterproof jacket with water pressure, which also with DWR. It generally refers to making a rubber base on the bottom of the fabric. It is divided into two types: coating and lamination. Most waterproof fabrics are laminated. This is the real waterproof and can be worn in heavy rain and snow without getting wet.

(The picture on the left above is DWR fabric. You can clearly see that the water droplets are rolling on it and can't easily penetrate into the fabric;
The picture on the right above is the water pressure test of the waterproof fabric. When the maximum water pressure that the fabric can withstand is reached, the waterproof fabric will break.)


According to different fabric processing technologies

Waterproof PU coating

PU coat the back of fabric and the pores on the surface are closed to prevent water. Coated fabric processing can also be divided into dry coating and wet coating, which will make the fabric’s hand feeling different. Fabric is like human skin, moisture will make the skin firmer and more elastic, and wet coating will also make the fabric feel more comfortable. Compared with the two, the waterproof fabric with dry coating will be more like the skin of the elderly, while the waterproof fabric with wet coating will be more like the skin of the young.

Waterproof film

PU/TPU film always are bonded with other materials to form a composite fabric. Under the protection of the waterproof film, keep the inner layer dry. 

The fabric with waterproof film will be more elastic and lighter than the fabric with waterproof coating. Waterproof fabric with PU film and TPU film is also called two-layer waterproof fabric. And another common three-layer waterproof fabric in the market is made of shell fabric/PU film/Tricot. The waterproof treatment of these fabrics will change the water pressure of the fabrics.


According to different taping processing technologies

Different taping including PU taping, TPU taping and rubber taping. It is usually used for side seams and cross seams of clothing to help the clothing achieve complete waterproof. The taping technology requires a high level of workers, who need to skillfully control the temperature, speed and stability of the taping. Poor taping will seriously affect the waterproof of jackets, and even water will seep into the seams.

The taping workers of Sky Swallow have more than 5 years of operation experience. Our water pressure for straight seams are at least 5000 MM, and that for cross seams are at least 4000 MM.

(The picture above shows our workers taping the straight side seams.)

(The picture above shows our workers are reinforcing the cross seams taping. Because there are more than two pieces of fabric splicing at the cross seam, which is the most vulnerable position on the whole jacket, it must be reinforced again after a taping to ensure the adhesion of the sealing glue.)


Differences of waterproof jackets between waterproof fabric and DWR fabric

Please note that wholesale waterproof clothing is different due to different fabrics and processing. So if you're buying wholesale waterproof jackets or finding waterproof jacket supplier, please pay attention to this.

For example, DWR jacket and waterproof jacket mentioned above. You can wear the DWR jacket for some outdoor activities in the light rain, but you must not wear it into the storm! That will make you wet all over! The waterproof jacket with water pressure can meet your activities in the storm. It can not only completely isolate the wind and rain, but also help you keep dry.


Different waterproof durability

The waterproof durability of waterproof fabric is longer, and the physical and chemical properties are more stable: while the waterproof durability of DWR fabric is shorter than waterproof fabric, and the physical and chemical properties are not as stable as waterproof fabric.

Different water pressure resistance indexes

The water pressure resistance index of waterproof fabric of wholesale waterproof clothing is usually more than 3000mm, while the DWR fabric have no water pressure.

Failure due to washing

Waterproof fabrics of wholesale waterproof jackets usually do not fail due to washing and long-term use, while DWR fabrics will gradually weaken or even fail with washing and long-term use.

The specific functions applied to wholesale waterproof clothing are different

Waterproof treatment is a completely impermeable barrier, which keeps water out whether the fabric absorbs water or not. The main function of DWR treatment is to reduce the adsorption of water by the fabric, so that the water can be "pulled away" on the surface of the fabric.
