From design concept we believed that combining a highly wind resistant DWR treated outer shell with our soft brushed tricot mesh liner could yield an insulated wind shirt with stellar moisture management ability. Worn as an outer these jackets shield you from cold winds and light precipitation.

15-denier Ballistic Airlight Nylon

ecinfo_001_00016.jpg

15-denier Ballistic Airlight nylon is a calendered hollow fiber fabric ideal for use in high performance outdoor clothing. The calendering process makes a tightly woven lightweight fabric more fiber proof and wind resistant. To achieve these desired traits the fabric is run between heated rollers to flatten and “shingle” each fiber. Once a high grade DWR (durable water repellant) is applied the resulting fabric is highly resistant to the elements and incredibly strong for its weight.

An elite water-repellent technology, Polkatex® DWR protects insulation from light moisture and helps maintain warmth.

Why Wind Shells?

They ARE NOT water proof.

They ARE NOT air tight.

They DO NOT HAVE “bomber” construction.

SO WHY are they essential when trying to add performance to a layering system?

With the addition of a 2 to 5 ounce / 50 to 150 gram wind shell you can easily expand the comfort range of your clothing in high winds, cool temperatures, and light precipitation. An ultra light wind shell layer excels when counted on to prevent conductive heat loss by shielding you from chilly gusts and light precipitation. It also offers a measure of shelter from sun and pesky insects in warmer surroundings. Additionally, by utilizing air permeable fabrics wind gear can offer a small amount of “breathability” to assist in bleeding excess heat. Finally, by being simple in construction and on the fragile side the highly compressible garment fits in the palm of your hand, making it easy to include in your trail kit and ideal for most activities.
