Dry.Q Elite is used in Mountain Hardwear's most premium waterproof breathable products. It offers the most comfortable level of breathability by combining high moisture vapor transfer rates and air permeability at all body temperatures. Traditional waterproof breathable technologies require high levels of user exertion (high body heat) before the breathability kicks in. Dry.Q Elite is instant on technology. It starts breathing the instant you put it on, regardless of temperature or level of exertion for waterproof, windproof performance like you've always wanted, guaranteed.
Brushed Tricot Lining
100% polyester fine denier, high filament count warp knit tricot. A slightly heavier version of Mountain Hardwear's Micro Chamois. Soft brushed face with a wicking finish.
Care and Feeding of Waterproof Breathable Shells
For best performance, it is a good idea to keep your waterproof/breathable Gore-Tex or Conduit shell clean and its DWR (durable water repellent) finish freshly charged. This means keeping oil and grease away from the garment, washing it when it gets dirty and reapplying its DWR finish.
Shells can be machine-washed in warm (not hot) water using regular powdered laundry detergent. Wash in a front-loading washing machine only. Do not use Woolite, other cleaners with lanolin (or any other oil), or fabric softener. Put the garment through at least two rinse cycles, as the detergent can interact with the DWR finish and needs to be totally rinsed out of the material.
After the shell has been washed, reapply the DWR finish while the garment is still damp. The heat of the dryer will help set the DWR finish into the fabric. Tumble dry on medium heat.
We recommend you re-treat your shell at the beginning of your wet weather season, and at least once during the season. However, if you are washing your shell often, we recommend re-treating the DWR finish more frequently. For best results, use spray-on, rather than wash-in, products. Once you have successfully cleaned and refinished your shell, it should work as well as new again.
