If you’re reading this, you probably already know it and love it. Polartec NeoShell is the world’s first, and still the most, breathable waterproof fabric on the market. If you’ve felt it, you've felt the difference. The NeoShell style Bonfire uses has the softness and stretch of a knit, while achieving a fully waterproof rating of 10,000mm. How do we do it? Well, let me tell you about my 3L’s:
L1— Let's start with the microporous membrane. The brains of the operation. Our patented electrospun, hydrophobic membrane, sandwiched between L2 and L3, consists of precisely sized pores to allow positive air exchange, releasing excess body heat while remaining completely waterproof. Its unique construction is durable, stretchy, and surprisingly light — all excellent features to totally transform your next session.
L2 — Onto the face. The facing fabric is what the world sees when they’re watching you do your thing. The newest Apex NeoShell Jacket features a burly polyester woven stretch face — which will come in Black and Dark Teal for the 2021-2022 update. Woven faces add durability, so snags and rips are no longer your concern.
L3 — A soft, supple polyester-knit backing. The unheralded hero here enables membrane stretchiness to ensure the gestalt is category-leading stretch and breathability.
These three layers work together to forever change expectations around comfort and mobility in inclement conditions, creating a fabric so comfortable you'll want to wear it even when the sun's out. Tested and proven in the moodiest weather in the world, Polartec® NeoShell® keeps you dry inside and out so you can stay dialed no matter the activity or condition.
