Technical Performance Hard Shell Waterproof Water Repellent Wind Repellent Breathable Fabric

The following fabrics are considered Technical Performance Shells (sometimes referred to as "Hard Shells").  They are manufactured using cutting edge technology to create top of the line waterproof breathable fabrics.  Some styles are 3-layer shells such as Polartec's Neoshell while other styles are 2-layer shells, such as HyVent.  Three-layer shells are laminated fabrics comprised of an outer fabric, a waterproof breathable membrane and an inner fabric while 2-layer shells have only the outer fabric and the membrane.  It's the membrane's specifications that determine how waterproof and breathable the fabric is. 

Many of these fabrics are used by high-end brands such as Arcteryx, Patagonia, North Face and Nike.  If you are looking for a fabric to make a highly waterproof and breathable shell for your outdoor pursuits, you are in the right place!  These fabrics can also be used as the outer layer of an insulated jacket and we carry Polartec Alpha, Alpha Direct and Power Fill insulations.

If you are looking for something a little less technical, have a look at our Water Repellent Shells Non Technical fabric collection.
