Schoeller Stretch-Woven Soft-Shell
Schoeller is a Swiss fabric manufacturer best known for its high quality protective fabrics, which are used for everything from alpinism and snow sports to fighting fires. Black Diamond use Schoeller’s stretch woven soft-shell fabric because it’s optimally windproof, breathable and water resistant, making it ideal for aerobic alpine activities. It’s also stretchy and moves with your body, giving you a better range of movement than a shell might.
NanoSphere is a water resistant coating like DWR that protects your kit from water and dirt. NanoSphere uses technology borrowed from the natural structure of a leaf, which has a finely-structured surface that repels water and dirt by making it harder to establish proper surface tension. The NanoSphere stops water from soaking into the outer layer of waterproof fabrics meaning they remain breathable and light in even in heavy rain.
