DryVent™ fabrics are engineered to be fully waterproof,
windproof and breathable. The outer face of the textile is treated
with a durable water repellant finish that helps form droplets and
repel water from the surface. Each multi layered textile is engineered
to allow water vapor to pass through from the inside to the outside.
DryVent™ fabrics are engineered in a variety, weights, textures
and performance characteristics that allows us to provide maximum
protection, performance and comfort for the user across all our active
and lifestyle waterproof, breathable clothing and accessories.
All DryVent™ clothing and accessories are fully seam
sealed and designed with specific features that are relevant to the
user’s specific activity needs and conditions. All products that are
fully taped, waterproof and breathable will be branded DryVent™.
DryVent™ fabrics using a 3 Layer construction are
primarily used on high performance technical styles that are designed
for the most extreme user in their activity segment. These textiles
are designed to be extremely durable and breathable and are used for
longer durations in severe conditions. These types of fabrications are
specified for use in our most technical clothing and accessories.
DryVent™ fabrics using a 2.5 Layer construction are
primarily used for highly active, fast and light pursuits, where light
weight and packable is an essential requirement of the user. The inner
layer is finished with a functional dry touch print that helps raise
the fabric from the skin to provide comfort and enable the quick
transfer of vapor through to the outside of the fabric. These fabrics
are generally designed into unlined clothing and accessories for
maximum light weight, packable, waterproof and breathable performance.
DryVent™ fabrics using a 2 Layer construction are our
most versatile and used across all our categories. These fabrics are
designed into clothing and accessories that are normally lined with a
secondary fabric for extra comfort and increased warmth. These lined
products can also be designed with fixed insulation for ultimate
warmth and versatility and can be found in a wide range of looks and finishes.
