The Science of High Performance
Five years in the making, in partnership with W.L. Gore, we have developed the new N80p-X face fabric. The primary objective of our outerwear is to create functional garments that work exceptionally in adverse conditions, and we put a lot of research and scientific development into highly-technical textiles.
In the performance of waterproof, breathable garments, the face fabric is a critical component. Preventing it from "wetting out" reduces heat loss, maintains breathability, and consequently maximizes comfort. The high-density construction of N80p-X increases its strength and resistance to fibre breakage, leading to gear that is in inherently water-repellent, snow-shedding, and engineered for longevity.
