Uhip Urban Stretch Coat
The coat has two large front pockets with flaps and two large open front pockets with side openings with soft and comfortable fleece lining. The sleeves are designed with wrist warmers and the cuffs have a neat wrap-around button that also easily folds down over the hand to protect you from moisture and cold.
By opening up the two-way zip at the front and the slit at the back, you can sit in the saddle while the coat hangs down and warms your legs. The inside of the coat is equipped with leg straps that can be fastened around your thighs to keep the garment in place.
The coat is slightly straighter in its design and the material is really stretchy while also being wind- and rain-resistant. The high comfortable collar with soft lining, together with the length of the coat, encloses the heat and ensures that your body heat keeps you warm without the air escaping.

10/10 Recycled Polyester, 2-layer,
Material made from Recycled Polyester with Mechanical Stretch. TPU Membrane to provide high waterprotection and breathability.
Polyester has exceptional colour resistance and retains colour intensity very well. Other benefits are its high tolerance to many chemicals and extremely low water absorption (for example, when you perspire, the material releases moisture into the air instead of absorbing it. Uhip is aiming to use only recycled polyester in future.
WP: 10 000mm
Water column is a way of measuring the degree of waterproofness in a garment to understand the garment’s ability not to let water through. How high a water column a garment can withstand is also affected by how it is used; a harder and more active use requires more of the material. Therefore, we recommend regular reinforcement with impregnation to ensure the full function of the garment.
MP: 10 000g/m2/24h
Breathability is often measured in a ‘g/m2/24hrs’ measurement. This rating represents the amount of water (or sweat) by weight that can pass through a square metre of fabric over a day.
Essentially, taping seams enhance the waterproof protection of clothing. Needle stitching leaves tiny holes in the garment through which water can seep when worn in wet conditions; taped seams prevent this from happening.
Bionic Finish ECO Fluorocarbon free DWR
Fluorine-free water repellent textile finishes of RUDOLF GROUP to achieve water-repellent effects. Many plants have a natural water repellency. BIONIC-FINISH® ECO absorbs this effect so that we can use it for our products.
Uhip does not use down in our garments, but we have used wool or synthetic fibres instead. The benefits of synthetic insulations are that they keep the heat even in wet conditions and it dries quickly. The basic principle for all insulations is the same: small spaces in the fibres encapsulate body heat and keep you warm. The more air between the body and the cold, the more effective insulation.
