Here it is: the next generation of softshells. The almost magical qualities of Polartec® NeoShell® not only make this lightweight jacket waterproof, but also highly breathable, with stretch for days. It comes with a full complement of big-mountain features, and has the added benefit of being free from the noise of a hardshell. Put it on once; keep it forever!
Superior waterproofing, wind resistance and breathability are the hallmarks of our Polartec® Neo Shell® collection. The almost magical qualities of Polartec® NeoShell® offer a highly breathable membrane with a special wicking backer to control sweat and keep your core ultra-comfy. And you'll be amazed that a technology this tough can be so lightweight. Combined with our M1 Softshells, it's in a class all its own.
Waterproof, breathable and ultra-flexible, Polartec® Neo Shell® fabric redefines what a softshell can be. It protects like a hardshell yet breathes like a softshell, with an abrasion resistant face, soft inner layer and highly breathable two-way air exchange. Using convection, the waterproof membrane dramatically accelerates moisture vapor transfer.
With its exclusive membrane technology, Polartec® NeoShell® engages convection to move moisture vapor away rapidly. Even at extremely low levels of pressure, air flows in and out of the fabric. This pulls the moisture out to help keep you drier during high-exertion activities.
Polartec® NeoShell® gives you warmth without weight because it uses light weight fibers and layers. Its wind resistant feature blocks 99.9% of the wind while the new wicking backer gives increased comfort and wicking performance. High performance innovation with easy care allows you to machine wash your garments.
M1 Softshells provide the highest level of water resistance and warmth, best for intermittent aerobic activities in cold and wet conditions.
