EXOLITE Technology

EXOLITE fabrics are a cornerstone of our soft shell clothing range. A group of durable, stretch double weave fabrics they combine an abrasion resistant smooth outer face with a soft, highly wicking inner for all day next-to-skin comfort.

A densely woven construction combats the worst effects of the wind and weather whilst maintaining exceptional breathability. With no membrane to slow down moisture transfer EXOLITE fabrics are an ideal choice for the most strenuous or fast moving activities in the mountains. All EXOLITE fabrics feature a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish on the outer face to repel light rain and snow.

Ranging from superlight and ultra-breathable EXOLITE 125 to robust and protective EXOLITE 275 fabrics they provide optimum performance for everything from the most technical rock routes to remote ice lines and committing ski tours.
