A : geckobrands products use three ratings to describe water resistance:
- Light Water Activities: Withstands light rain and splashes. Products that fall into this category are suitable for use where light water resistance is sufficient, such as summer backpacking.
- Extreme Water Activities: Withstands quick submersions. Products that fall into this category and are suitable for canoe, kayak and rafting use where boats may tip, flip or be swamped.
- Submersible: Withstands 1 meter of submersion for 30 minutes (IP-67 standard). Suitable for use in extreme and prolonged wet situations.
