Pertex® Shield - how it works

The fabric of the material is a sophisticated outer layer designed for very challenging mountain tours when weight and functionality play a primary role. The versatile, 2-, 2.5- and 3-layer technology combines lightweight fabrics with waterproof, windproof and breathable membranes. On the outermost layer, the durable DWR membrane (durable water repellent membrane) lets rain and snow roll off, thus maintaining breathability. Additionally, the material is pleasent to the touch and is therefore ideal for outdoor clothing.

Some tips for cleaning and care of Pertex® products

Before you wash your cloths you should always take a look at the care label! Due to the porous material structure, gentle detergents without surfactants are best suited for cleaning. Use the gentle cycle at low temperatures, do not use softeners and do not spin but if you do, only slightly. As soon as the water repellent effect is diminished, you can reimpregnate the products.
