“What chemical is used for the waterproofing? ”

  • I am not sure what the waterproofing is. I no longer have the tags. There isn't a funny odor to the coat. I do know I did not like the waterproofing of another coat I tried on the "Miss Metro Parka." The waterproofing material has a more rubbery feel to it which is not something I prefer. This is just a nice warmer down parka with water repellant. I am sure it is not a coat you would want to wear in a down poor. You would get soaked!

  • This item is water resistant, but not waterproof. We do not have specifics on this item, but most factory-applied treatments are fluoropolymer based.
