Outer DWR Coating UltraTech Waterproof Fabric ultratechfabrics.com 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 (Durable Water Repellent ) film. This process guarantees a high performance fabric that is rugged and robust.

Primaloft Insulation This is the ultimate hi-tech alternative to down insulation. Developed by the US military in the early 80s to provide their troops with reliable insulation layers featuring an unsurpassed warmth/weight ratio. Primaloft is now consistently used in sports applications where technical, high performance materials are required. Unlike traditional down insulation, which gets weighed down and loses much performance when wet, Primaloft is up to 96% air and thus retains its insulating properties when saturated, as well as being more resistant to abrasion.

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.

YKK Zippers Zippers from YKK are synonymous with quality and reliability. These extremely durable, easy to use, high quality zippers are currently the global leader for performance outerwear applications. Being smooth to operate and with less of a tendency to catch, or malfunction, these zippers can be easily operated using one hand in even the coldest conditions. We use only YKK in every piece on every line in our range.
