What is the difference between waterproof, water-resistant and water repellent?

  • Water-resistant: ability to resist the penetration of water to some degree but not entirely
  • Water-repellent: not easily penetrated by water, especially as a result of being treated for such a purpose with a surface coating
  • Waterproof: impervious to water.

All KEEN products that feature either a KEEN.DRY® membrane or a membrane are waterproof. This feature is available across all KEEN collections on selected styles.
