APEX Softshell Technology
A soft shell technology breakthrough. Apex is a signature material, researched and developed exclusively by The North Face, making the fleece/shell combination possible through its proprietary blend of characteristics. Apex offers the dynamic duo of a tightly woven abrasion-phobic face for protection, and a soft-brushed interior for performance and comfort. Apex technology is built to stretch for comfort and mobility and is treated with their Durable Water Resistant (DWR) finish.
Durable water repellent (DWR) finishes on fabrics and zippers give them increased water resistant qualities and significantly extend the life of waterproof and waterproof breathable technologies. The addition of an enhanced hydrophobic treatment enables DWR to adhere to material for an extremely extended lifetime.
GORE-TEX® products are designed to provide superior comfort and durable waterproof protection for a wide range of outdoor activities. The GORE-TEX® revolutionary patented membrane technology is specifically engineered to form an impenetrable barrier against wind and water while maintaining breathability. GORE-TEX® fabric is used in a two-layer construction for a lighter and softer feel and in a three-layer construction for a more heavy-duty alternative.
