What is the WINDSTOPPER Fabric?

The Freedom to Be Your Best

WIndstopper Logo
WINDSTOPPER® products give you the freedom to be your best and enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle. They keep you comfortable, warm and protected across a wide range of weather conditions and activities. You can focus on your experience without the distraction of being cold, damp or overheated.
Why is windproof protection so important? Consider this: With a wind speed of 20 mph, a temperature of 41°F will feel like 17°F – in just two minutes. Instead of being put toward your performance, all your energy will soon be focused on trying to keep your body warm. Slam the door on windchill and protect the warm but highly sensitive microclimate that surrounds your skin. WINDSTOPPER® fabrics are 100% windproof and keep you up to 2.5 times warmer than comparable materials without the WINDSTOPPER® membrane.
WINDSTOPPER® fabrics offer soft, lightweight weather protection in one versatile and durable garment. Owing to their total windproofness and maximum breathability, our garments will keep you comfortable longer across a wide range of weather conditions and activities.

Technical Details

Every square inch of the WINDSTOPPER® membrane contains 1.4 billion micropores. 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.
More comfort equals better performance. Yes, it really is that simple. Just ask any professional athlete.
