Face Fabric

Body – 50D 124 g / m² 100% recycled polyester with DWR finish

Upper Back – 20D 91 g / m² 100% recycled polyester with DWR finish


FUTURELIGHT™ 3L – The nanospinning process used to create FUTURELIGHT™ fabric has allowed the brand to add unmatched air permeability into the membrane of a fabric for the first time. The process creates nano-level holes, allowing for incredible porosity while maintaining total waterproofness, letting air move through the material and provide more venting than ever before.
