New 4-layer Twin Sensor waterproof/breathable fabric combines both hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties, providing the best performance in waterproofing and breathability.
Outer shell fabric is coated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish to prevent wetting out, improving breathability.
Hydrophobic micro-porous coating does not allow water to pass through, but does allow moisture vapor to pass through and escape.
Hydrophilic laminate absorbs & transports moisture vapor away from the body, helping to increase breathability, and through to the micro-porous coating.
The bi-component nature of the fabric offers the most effective waterproof/breathable technology for inclement weather.
