The Technology

Consistently keeping ahead with advancements in technology is what enables DexShell's protective gear to be so effective in repelling the outdoor elements, even in the most challenging conditions.

Patented '4-Way Stretch' Technology

By using a unique micro dot lamination technique this process provides greater freedom to enable the user to be more active. The micro dot lamination between the Outer Lining and Interlining provides greater stretch allowing the product to be far more flexible and in turn help the users ability to move.

Porelle® Membranes

Porelle® waterproof breathable membranes have been engineered for lamination to create high performance fabrics for a range of different market applications.

Porelle® Membranes produce a wide variety of membranes for use in high-end markets to supply a wide variety of waterproof and breathable membranes. These membranes are also resistant to high temperatures and are extremely durable. DexShell selects a line of Porelle® membrane with the WVP 15,000 g/m2.day ASTM E96:95

Porelle membranes are manufactured by PIL Membranes with over 30 years' experience in the market place. Porelle® is the registered trademark of KL Technologies Group Limited.

Hydrostatic Head Test

In the Hydrostatic Head Test Dexshell rivals its competitors with its impressive waterproof materials. The higher the hydrostatic head value the more water resistant the fabric is. For any fabric to be valued as fully waterproof it should withstand the pressure of a column of water 1000mm high without leakage. Dexshell products exceed this by far.

Coolmax

COOLMAX® YARNS

COOLMAX® is the performance yarn that includes an effective fiber-based moisture management system. The system can move perspiration away from the body, through the fabric, and transfer out of the wear. It can evaporate quickly, allowing the wearer to feel cooler and much more comfortable. COOLMAX® fresh FX has the permanent anti-bacterial performance due to the special treatment by silver-based additive during the production. COOLMAX® is the registered trademark of Invista®.

Merino Wool

MERINO WOOL

Warm, breathable, moisture repellent and anti-static, Merino has the capacity to deal with moisture like no other yarns, absorbing perspiration and releasing it into the air as vapor. It is naturally odor resistant too. Luxuriously soft and gentle against the skin, it reacts to your body's temperature, keeping you warm when it's cold and releasing body heat and moisture when it's hot. The natural elasticity and resilience of Merino wool enables it to spring back into shape with ease.

Bamboo Rayon

BAMBOO RAYON

Known for being incredibly soft, Bamboo Rayon is anti-static and sits well next to your skin. It is moisture-wicking to keep you drier. Anti-bacterial. Its warm thanks to its hollow fiber yet also breathable so that it performs well in all temperatures. It grows naturally, needs very little rain to produce rapidly, and is 100% biodegradable.


Drirelease® WOOL BLEND

drirelease® technology uses an engineered blend of multi-denier, multi-staple length hydrophobic (water-hating) and hydrophilic (water-loving) fibers to keep wearers dry, cool and comfortable. The unique blend of synthetic and natural fibers in drirelease® yarn actually accelerates the water release rate. Rather than just spreading moisture across the surface, drirelease® fabrics push water and perspiration to the outside of a garment, releasing them into the air faster than other performance fabrics on the market. The drirelease® WOOL blend is as warm as 100% wool without the itch. The wearer never feels clammy against the skin. drirelease® can be found in a wide variety of outdoor and active apparel from many of the world's best brands.
