3 Layer Construction
The Headwall bib is a 3 Layer construction using a durable all-way stretch woven fabric outer layer, an expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) waterproof breathable membrane and a very lightweight backing fabric attached to the interior. This lightweight backing helps to improve comfort by absorbing moisture from the inside and transporting it through the membrane and to the surface of the face fabric while simultaneously protecting the waterproof membrane from skin-borne substances. 3-Layer construction is the most advanced, protective, packable, durable and breathable construction method, and also the most expensive. But when tasked with developing a fabric that excels in the worst conditions, this is the ideal approach, and these bibs excel in the most sustained extreme conditions.
Athletic Fit, Freedom To Move
The result is a trim-fitting garment allows the skier maximum freedom of movement in a garments with the superior waterproofness of the 3 layer construction. Add to that a 20K/20K C6 Durable Water Repellent (DWR) Coating, this highly breathable fabric allows you sweat vapor to escape and rain and snow to bead right off you.
