Lightweight, wrinkle-free, and easy to wear, FlannelTec allows ultimate flexibility and unlimited possibilities.
| Ecorepel®: inspired by feather’s water repellent function, is based on long paraffin chains that wrap themselves spiral-like around individual fibers or yarns in a very fine film, which reduces surface tension so that water droplets and mud run off easily. Ecorepel remains breathability and soft feel. Moreover, ecorepel®, free of fluorocarbons, supports eco certifications such as Bluesign and Oeko-Tex.
| Outlast®: Guarantees perfect warmth and insulation. It continuously interacts with the unique microclimate of the human body and the environment to moderate temperature from being too hot, or too cold, to be just right.
| Storm Cotton: A special water-repellent finish for Cotton which offers improved performance in water repellent rate while maintaining cotton's breathability. Even if it repels liquids, this finish allows moisture vapor to pass through the fabric, so the user feels more comfortable.
