Overview

Built-In Technology

Primeflex By TORAY
Fabrics that get their stretch from as much as 10% elastane, spandex, and Lycra® materials are heavy, slow to dry, and don’t last. Primeflex fabrics solve the problem of restrictive clothing by utilizing a patented spiral yarn that allows the fabric to stretch and recover without using water-absorbing spandex. Primeflex fabrics are quick dry and offer durability, comfort, and stretch without the weight.

TORAY Wind Resistant Fleece Technology
Blocking wind by adding extra layers adds unwanted weight and bulk. Our Wind Resistant Fleece Technology takes a new approach to blocking wind and eliminates the windproof membrane by utilizing a unique bonding technique between the face fabric and fleece backer. This trims weight and resists wind while also having exceptional breathability, stretch and soft next-to-skin feel.

K-DWR® (KUIU DURABLE WATER REPELLENT)
Once a fabric is soaked, insulation and breathability are compromised. K-DWR treatments bead and resist water, keeping it from penetrating the outer layer. This increased breathability and performance allow waterproof membranes to evaporate your sweat while blocking out moisture. K-DWR also enhances dry-time and protects from light rain or dew-soaked vegetation on non-waterproof products.
