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.

Featured in all our Yukon, Chugach, Guide, Attack, Alpine, Northstar, and Peloton 130 styles.

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.
