Incredibly stretchable wind and waterproof protection
Everything in the Yukon series is engineered and designed for the most demanding weather conditions in the world. We bonded the Dermizax® NX membrane to an incredibly durable Toray Primeflex® 100% polyester fabric that is abrasion resistant, 4-way stretch, and treated with Toray's industry leading Kudos® DWR. A circular knit backer by Toray is bonded to the inside, resulting in the most advanced 3-layer waterproof breathable fabric ever created.
The membrane is completely wind and waterproof, allows up to 200% stretch in both directions, twice as breathable as our closest competitor, and up to four times as breathable as most others waterproof fabrics.

Primeflex™ by Toray
A Key Ingredient to Losing Four Pounds
Primeflex fabrics feature a patented spiral yarn technology that allows the yarn to stretch and recover without using heavy, water-absorbing elastics such as Lycra®. The result is more comfortable, higher-performance Primeflex fabrics that weigh about 40 percent less than comparable traditional fabrics.

Toray’s Kudos® XR DWR
Kudos® XR DWR (Durable Water-Repellent)
Kudos XR DWR performs better and lasts significantly longer than conventional DWR. DWR is critical for waterproof breathable face fabric. If DWR fails the face fabric “wets out” causing condensation build up on the inside of the garment.
