Windstopper® fabrics are constructed by laminating our special membrane to a wide range of functional fabrics selected according to the final product’s intended use. This revolutionary structure is ultra-light, ultra-thin, and highly resistant to extreme temperatures. The microporous structure of the Windstopper® membrane ensures maximum breathability; cold wind is kept out, but moisture vapor can easily escape. Integrated into the ePTFE portion of the membrane is a hydrophobic, or water-hating, substance to keep external moisture away from your skin. This thermoregulating effect keeps you comfortable longer, so you can be at your best. To construct a Windstopper® laminate, the ePTFE membrane is bonded to a wide range of high-performance fabrics. Depending on the application, a variety of outer fabrics and lining materials are used to create 2-, 3- and even 4-layer constructions.
