Gelanots® - Toyota Tsusho, Japan

Breathable windproof, waterproof / water repellent fabric. Used in drysuits, jackets and trousers

Two versions used:-
Lighter version - 3 layers membrane fabric (20000mmH2O/20000g/m2 24h)
Thicker version - 4 layers membrane fabrics (26000mmH2O/10000g/m2 24h) - colours available below & bottom right

GEL is a hydrophilic non-Porous film made of 100% Polyurethane in a thickness of 20 micron in average. It is Water and wind proof membrane offering higher breathability than the common standard while maintaining a soft hand feel.
IM, made of 100% Polyurethane, has a hydrophobic micro-porous coating with a top layer of hydrophilic non-porous membrane for a higher durability, UV and salt water resistance.

Colour options

Some possible colour combinations


Breathable wicking material. Used for cooling rash shirts / vests and for thermal underwear

Various fabrics for different applications, with varying degrees of wicking / evaporation, and heat/cooling retention/release properties. Some fabrics also have sun protection properties

Polartec® Delta™ was created so cooling fabric technologies could better utilize the body's natural cooling process — sweat.
Next-to-skin fabrics that target wicking and fast drying will keep moisture moving, but don't work towards actually cooling the body down. Delta™ works more efficiently by elevating touch-points for increased airflow, faster moisture dispersal, and reduced wet-cling.

Polartec® Power Dry® is the most advanced next-to-skin moisture management fabric.
By using Powertec's proprietary bi-component knit construction, every fiber works with maximum efficiency. Moisture is quickly pulled away from the body and transferred to the outer surface for faster evaporation during activity.

Polartec® Power Grid™ is the evolution of fleece fabric engineering.
Polartec's patented grid construction knit strengthens performance efficiency by increasing warmth and breathability, while also reducing fabric mass. These geometric patterns improve compressibility, wicking, and add technical style. By reinventing thermal warmth possibilities, Power Grid™ is a minimalist design that maximizes fabric performance.

Polartec® Power Stretch® is a performance-fit fabric platform that raises the bar for stretch fabric capabilities.
Advanced dual-surface knit construction gives Power Stretch® enough tensile strength for durable shape recovery. Performance wicking abilities mean it keeps up with any activity.

Power Stretch® Pro™ offers the greatest elastic stretch of our growing performance-fit platforms.
Advanced dual-surface knit construction gives Power Stretch® Pro™ enough tensile strength and abrasion resistance for durable shape recovery. Performance wicking abilities mean it keeps up with any activity.
