ULTRATECH WATERPROOF AND BREATHABLE SHELL FABRIC
UltraTech is a range of high-quality materials developed in collaboration with leading Taiwanese manufacturers who specialize in technical fabrics and yarns. Designed to maximize performance across diverse conditions, UltraTech fabrics are manufactured in fully controlled facilities, using advanced processes: The technical outer shell is laminated with a fully waterproof and breathable membrane, then treated with a water repellent DWR film. This process guarantees a high-performance fabric that is rugged and robust.
DWR - Durable Water Repellent coating, as the name suggests, is hydrophobic. It repels water, causing it to ‘bead up’ on the outer surface and stops it from penetrating the outermost layer. When melting snow cannot penetrate the outer surface of the fabric and saturate inner layers, breathability remains high, weight remains low and performance is not compromised.
