New Polartec® NeoShell® fabric is a waterproof, windproof high–performance textile. But unlike traditional hard shell fabrics, its exclusive membrane does not rely on diffusion to achieve its breathability. Instead, it uses the convection process associated with soft shells. A constant two–way flow of air is maintainedthe more you move, the more air is exchanged. The result is an unprecedented level of breathability while active, enabling you to stay drier during high–exertion activities.
Our durable water–repellent (DWR) finish causes moisture to bead on the surface so it rolls off or evaporates rather than soaking into the fabric.
