The Fabrics of Outa Ware

                              

Outa Ware uses only the highest quality outdoor fabrics.  The following is the current list of the high-quality fabrics used in the OUTA WARE clothing line:

SUPPLEX - This nylon fabric made by Burlington Industries (USA) feels similar to cotton but behaves only like nylon can. It is wind and water resistant, lightweight, colorfast, easy-care and dries quickly.

POWDERHORN - SUPPLEX nylon with a durable water repellent (DWR) solution applied to the fibers before the fabric is woven for a long lasting water resistant finish.  

STORMCHEK - A urethane coated  Powderhorn SUPPLEX nylon with the DWR finish to make it the most water and wind resistant fabric available.   This fabric dries super quick but is not very breathable.

HI WICK NYLON- A nylon that offers more comfort and breathability than the Supplex fabrics above. The Hi wick nylon does not repel water, but absorbs perspiration.

MICROFIBER - A polyester that offers more comfort and breathability than the Supplex fabrics above. The Microfiber does not repel water as well as Supplex.

DRY X -A rugged 70 Denier Nylon with a micro-porous waterproof & breathable coating. It's waterproof to 3000 mm of hydrostatic pressure and breathable to 3000 grams of 24 hour moisture vapor transmission.
                                                     

FULL COUNT ULTREX- A fabric similar to DRY-X but made by Burlington Industries in the USA.

2 Ply GORE-TEX- A "top of the line" light weight breathable waterproof fabric made by Gore.  These fabrics are significantly lighter than both the ULTREX and DRY-X and therefore are more breathable, but a little less durable.

3 Ply GORE-TEX- A "top of the line" light weight waterproof  breathable fabric made by Gore  which does not need a liner.  Ideal for ultra light backpacking, rain, and ski clothing.
