Soft Shell Fabric--3 layers
Soft Shell fabric has a 100% DWR face fabric with a TPU or PTFE (Micro Pours Teflon) Membrane and 100% Polyester Micro Fleece backing. Going beyond traditional 2-layer systems, which feature fleece insulation and a waterproof/breathable shell, to a single layer that protects against all but the worst weather conditions and delivers extended breathablity, abrasion resistance and stretch to enhance your outdoor experience. The durable water repellent (DWR) face will shed rain and snow and the mechanical stretch gives freedom of movement.
Garments made from Soft Shell are designed to replace traditional fleece and shell systems for most outdoor clothing applications, reducing the weight and number of layers needed to insulate and protect. They are ideal for skiing, snowboarding, winter climbing, cycling and back-country trekking. They are used in jackets, pants, bibs, hats, and gloves.
