That elusive balance

That elusive balance

Asmund uses a 3 layer, ultra lightweight, micro-ripstop Polartec® NeoShell® fabric. NeoShell® has a highly aerobic air permeability which provides a durable protective shell with advanced wicking capabilities to keep moisture vapour moving away from your core. Shedding entire layers or relying on pit-zips can be avoided altogether through enhanced breathability. Prior to the invention of NeoShell® the elusive balance between waterproof and windproof protection and true breathability had yet to exist in a hard shell fabric. Jottnar uses only Polartec® NeoShell® in our waterproof, breathable fabrics.
