DryVent™ fabrics are engineered to be fully waterproof, windproof and breathable. The outer face of the textile is treated with a durable water repellant finish that helps form droplets and repel water from the surface. Each multi layered textile is engineered to allow water vapor to pass through from the inside to the outside.
DryVent™ fabrics are engineered in a variety, weights, textures and performance characteristics that allows us to provide maximum protection, performance and comfort for the user across all our active and lifestyle waterproof, breathable clothing and accessories.
All DryVent™ clothing and accessories are fully seam sealed and designed with specific features that are relevant to the user's specific activity needs and conditions. All products that are fully taped, waterproof and breathable will be branded DryVent™.

Dryvent 3L: DryVent™ fabrics using a 3 Layer construction are primarily used on high performance technical styles that are designed for the most extreme user in their activity segment. These textiles are designed to be extremely durable and breathable and are used for longer durations in severe conditions. These types of fabrications are specified for use in our most technical clothing and accessories.
Dryvent 2.5L: DryVent™ fabrics using a 2.5 Layer construction are primarily used for highly active, fast and light pursuits, where light weight and packable is an essential requirement of the user. The inner layer is finished with a functional dry touch print that helps raise the fabric from the skin to provide comfort and enable the quick transfer of vapor through to the outside of the fabric. These fabrics are generally designed into unlined clothing and accessories for maximum light weight, packable, waterproof and breathable performance. Dryvent 2L: DryVent™ fabrics using a 2 Layer construction are our most versatile and used across all our categories. These fabrics are designed into clothing and accessories that are normally lined with a secondary fabric for extra comfort and increased warmth. These lined products can also be designed with fixed insulation for ultimate warmth and versatility and can be found in a wide range of looks and finishes.

The North Face® thermal apparel uses natural and synthetic insulation to retain heat in cold weather.
PRIMALOFT® SILVER Insulation: Engineered for a full spectrum of benefits – millions of pair pockets trap body heat in extreme conditions and lack of bulk means great freedom of movement for the activity. The PrimaLoft® proprietary treatment ensures excellent performance as the insulation maintains its warmth properties even in wet conditions. Designed for durability in a lightweight design for active applications, packability, breathability, and softness. No need to compromise on performance.
PRIMALOFT® GOLD Insulation: The benchmark in performance of all synthetic insulation, Primaloft® Gold Insulation is the go-to choice for adventurers looking for protection in extreme conditions. Microfibers trap body heat to make this the most efficient synthetic insulation available, with water-repellency that insulates even in the wettest weather – maintaining 98% of warmth when wet. These unmatched thermal properties also feature breathability, packability and outstanding softness - consider this the pinnacle of insulation performance.
PRIMALOFT® SILVER Insulation ECO: Primaloft® Silver Insulation Eco uses post-consumer recycled materials to create the highest - performing eco-friendly insulation available. The wet performance experts at PrimaLoft, Inc., have combined this 70%-recycled fiber technology with a proprietary water-repellent treatment for immediate warmth without the bulk that keeps you comfortable in wet weather. Highly compressible, and with a soft feel that mimic's goose down – the best-in-class eco-friendly insulation offers insulation that performs with a conscience.
PRIMALOFT® BLACK HI-LOFT Insulation: Primaloft® Black insulation Hi-Loft was originally developed to solve the common shortfalls of standard continuous filament insulations: packability and softness. This brings all the expected features of PrimaLoft® synthetic to its class – full warmth values, wet performance, an efficient pack, and a soft feel. Fibers create a high-loft insulation that delivers its performance promise, and eliminates any cold spots. Efficiently trapping body heat in dry and wet conditions yet maintaining breathability, this insulation offers comfort through protection from the elements.
