SoftShell trousers

Softshell trousers

Softshell pants are part of the latest innovations in the outdoor world thanks to the technological advances of recent times. The soft shell technology, highly valued in mountain clothing for its performance, is characterized by its balance between breathability, resistance and water repellency. Such is its performance, which is applied to garments for all body parts such as jackets or gloves.

The pieces of clothing manufactured with this technology incorporate a three-layer construction. The three-layer construction provides during the practice of activity in the mountain the resistance, elasticity and breathability necessary as long as the cold conditions are not extreme.

How does the three-layer construction work? Following the theory of the three layers, each of them has a function during the practice of activity in the mountain offering protection to the different elements. In the inner layer, or first layer, resides the thermal capacity of the garment. In other words; It is the one that conserves body heat.

The middle layer, or second layer, prevents cold air from penetrating, causing us to lose body heat. This is achieved by the presence of a windproof membrane made of polyurethane, a rigid or flexible plastic material used for insulation.

Finally, we find the outer layer or third layer. Its main function is protection against water. And, although they are not waterproof, it is water repellent thanks to a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) treatment.

The outer layer or third layer, generally, is made with synthetic fibers such as nylon or polyester. However, for the development of more technical activities in the mountains, synthetic fabrics with a higher resistance index such as RipStop nylon are also used. This material is found, in a special way, in those areas most exposed to greater abrasion.

Regarding the impermeability of the soft Shell must take into account some things. Its minimum water column does not reach 10,000mm, so they do not become impervious pieces of clothing. However. Yes, they incorporate DWR water repellent treatment.

Thanks to the application of a water-repellent polymer in the outer layer -or third layer- of the piece of clothing, the tensile surface of the fabric is reduced. This causes water droplets to run off through the third layer without being able to draw.

The soft shell technology also requires maintenance to prolong the durability of the garments. For this, from Vertic we recommend that during the washing neutral detergent be used; that is to say, that does not incorporate softener. And, softeners, deteriorate the performance of the membranes damaging their breathability.

Another requirement during the washing process is to do it with water that does not exceed 40ºC; that is, not too hot water. In addition, during drying it is necessary to do it outdoors but without the ultraviolet rays of the Sun radiating directly on the garment. Since, otherwise, the piece can overheat and break down.

Both the benefits of Shell soft technology and the versatility when used in different activities on the mountain, makes it a great option to enjoy the adventures in the mountains.

Let yourself be guided by the advice of our specialists. Through your needs, demands and your favorite activities in the mountains you will find the soft shell trousers that best suits you so you can enjoy your adventures in the mountains like never before.
