- World's best water repellant performance. Unlike other water repellent treatments, Polkatex™ DWR will retain its ability to keep you dry wear after wear, and wash after wash. Polkatex™ is a water based treatment with a fluorine finish that adheres to the fibers in treated fabrics to provide excellent water resistance. Polkatex™ also contains a cushioning agent that fills in the molecular bonds, giving them a unique elasticity. This elasticity allows the bonds to rebound from abrasion, and resist degradation from harsh detergents and oils. Polkatex™ is so durable that even after 100 washings it still retains 90% of its original repellency.Ballistic Airlight™
- 15-denier Ballistic Airlight™ nylon is astoundingly thin, weighing less than half of a 45-denier nylon of normal shells while offering equal strength. This strength comes from the manufacturing process where the nylon is repeatedly stretched to align the molecules, much like the tensilizing of steel, resulting in an extremely light weight, wind resistant, breathable and water resistant fabric.
