Stretchy & resilient

If you buy just one Eco-Shell garment, then make sure it’s made from Eco-Shell Original. This three-layer shell material offers all-round performance in the outdoors with its perfect combination of low weight, high breathability and light stretch. And, as with all our Eco-Shell garments, it’s impregnated with a PFC-free durable water repellent (DWR). 

For extra tough treks, hikes and climbs, we recommend our reinforced version. It utilises rip-stop threads that minimise the chance of holes and tears developing in the fabric.

In 2012 we decided to switch to fluorocarbon-free impregnation throughout our product range. Find out more about how we work with sustainable materials here.

But we feel this is a price worth paying. But don’t worry! Re-impregnation is easy.
