Nikwax Analogy is more than just breathable, it is directional, moving liquid water
Nikwax Analogy Waterproof FabricConventional breathable membrane waterproof fabrics fail because they cannot remove all of the sweat we produce when we are working hard, especially in cold and wet conditions. Therefore condensation and icing are well known problems experienced with membrane rainwear.
Nikwax Analogy overcomes these problems because it is not only breathable, but also directional. The Analogy fabric system directs condensation and perspiration away from the body, where it can safely drain away.
To understand the difference between directionality and breathability, read more here.
Nikwax Analogy comes in two weights: Nikwax Analogy: durable, full-weight protection Nikwax Analogy Light: same protection, weighs 20% less. A little less durable, but perfect for fast & light adventures
