thank you for your interest in Ergo 365 pro Jacket.
I don't know where you took information, but they're wrong.
Ergo 365 Pro jacket features a 3-layers external shield. More deeply, the external fabric is made by the following 3 layers:
1st layer: 100% Nylon Oxford with Teflon Water Repellant treatment (it's the black fabric on the outside:
2nd layer: H2OutŪ Hydropholic Membrane 3000 WP / 5000 TR (it's the white lamination in the middle)
3rd layer: 18D Tricot (it's the Comfort part in the inner)
This is just the external fabric.
Of course this is worn together with the removable membrane (separate jacket) and the thermal liner (separate jacket).
What does this mean?
If you ride in full winter time (in UK for example) you wear the 3 jackets together, while the external 3-layers-fabric doesn't get sodden at all, because of its water repellent treatment.
Again, if you ride in rainy condition in very hot climates, you just use the external 3-layers shield, close all the 6 big air intakes, stay dry, with high breathability, and don't get sodden.
