Organic Cotton

Level Six Certified Organic Cotton

 

 


 

 

HYDROSHIELD 

Hydro-Shield is a nano treatment done during the yarn spinning process to infuse the yarn before it is woven with a highly water resistant finish which does not affect the overall breathability of the finished fabric.

 


 

UPF 

UPF stands for “ultraviolet protection factor”.  Our UPF 35+/50+ rating means that no more than 1/35th or 1/50th of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays pass through the fabric.

 


 

 

THERMOSTRETCH 

3mm Thermo-Stretch Neoprene Body for a skin tight fit and extra warmth

 

 

 


 

 

SUPERSTRETCH 

Ultra stretch neoprene

 

 


 

 

DCS waistband

  


 

Combination of our 3 and 2.5 ply materials

 


 

2 layers of materials to reinforce high wear areas

 


 

1. DURABLE WATER REPELLANT SPRAY

Designed to make surface water bead off the jacket, this spray is a crucial part of the garments breathability. There are several DWR’s available and their effective durability is reflected in their price. Because our gear is made for paddling, Our DWR is the toughest available.

 

2. FACE FABRIC

60g/m2 100% nylon. We employ a lighter denier of nylon for the 2.0 Ply line of gear to ensure comfort and freedom of movement.

 

3. eXhaust MEMBRANE

This Layer provides the systems waterproofness and breathability. The eXhaust membrane is a ultra thin layer that has micro pores small enough to prevent water from penetrating but large enough to allow body vapor (sweat)  to escape. Sandwiched between the protective layers of the outer face fabric and a screened print, this system is breathable and durable enough for the punishing demands of paddling.
Water Specifications:
- 3,000 mm water resistance (water column test)
Breathability Specifications:
-3,000g/m2/24hrs breathability (JIS L 1099 B1 tests)

2. FACE FABRIC

185g/m2 100% nylon. We went with a lighter denier of nylon for the 2.5 Ply line of gear that would feel nice and soft to the hand without sacrificing strength.

 

3. eXhaust MEMBRANE

This Layer provides the systems waterproofness and breathability. The eXhaust membrane is a ultra thin layer that has micro pores small enough to prevent water from penetrating but large enough to allow body vapor (sweat)  to escape. Sandwiched between the protective layers of the outer face fabric and a screened print, this system is breathable and durable enough for the punishing demands of paddling.
Water Specifications:
-10,000 mm water resistance (water column test)
Breathability Specifications:
-6,000g/m2/24hrs breathability (JIS L 1099 A1+B1 tests)

 

4. MEMBRANE PROTECTION

A diamond shaped grid is screened to the underside of the waterproof breathable eXhaust membrane. This synthetic dot matrix protects the membrane from abrasion and wear and tear with other clothing layers. Being thinner than 3-ply Tricot, this film is the best choice to increase the toughness of our lightweight paddling gear.

2. FACE FABRIC

194g/m2 100% nylon. We went with a denier of nylon that would feel nice and soft to the hand without sacrificing strength.

This Layer provides the systems waterproofness and breathability. The eXhaust membrane is a ultra thin layer that has micro pores small enough to prevent water from penetrating but large enough to allow body vapor (sweat) to escape. Sandwiched between the protective layers of the outer face fabric and the tricot mesh, this system is breathable and durable enough for the punishing demands of paddling.
Water Specifications:
-20,000 mm water resistance (water column test)
Breathability Specifications
-8,000g/m2/24hrs breathability (JIS L 1099 A1+B1 tests)

 

4. MEMBRANE PROTECTION

Polyester Tricot Lining is laminated to the underside of the waterproof breathable eXhaust membrane. This synthetic mesh protects the membrane from abrasion and wear and tear with other clothing layers.
