Andes V2 Drystar
Primary Material Textile
This garment is fitted with impact protectors for the knees. Pockets are provided at the hips for fitting aftermarket impact protectors. Adding hip impact protectors would improve the protection levels of this garment. Replacing the knee armour with higher performing impact protectors would improve the protection levels of this garment.
There are zipped vents in the upper legs to allow controlled airflow movement through the garment. The breathability rating is based on tests of the garment's materials when all vents are closed. The breathability of this product may be better when the vents can be opened. Breathability was measured without the removable thermal liner installed.
