Gear-Zone Guide to Polartec Neoshell
Posted by Nicki | February 03, 2012
This is it - the most breathable, waterproof and climatically controlled fabric on the planet!
Active pursuit enthusiasts have always had to live slightly outside their true comfort zone, within the age-old restrictions of waterproof versus windproof versus breathability, and the subsequent problems of heat build-up, sweat saturation, wind-chill and basic discomfort.
Not any more.
Polartec’s revolutionary new Neoshell technology has been hailed as the best of the best, the most outstanding product innovation for the great outdoors, and the most breathable waterproof fabric in existence.
Neoshell, it is claimed, has it all - a fully waterproof material which allows more air exchange then anything else out there, giving greater breathability and temperature regulation than anything that has come before.
This is said to be the ultimate in personal climate control, with unprecedented breathability in a fully waterproof shell which still keeps the wind out…and the heat in.
Personified in Rab’s ground-breaking new Stretch Neo Jacket, this latest Polartec innovation allows twice as much air flow through the fabric as anything available from their leading competitors, combining the comfort and breathability of a soft shell with the rugged, all-weather performance of a traditional hard shell.
Not only will you stay dry on the inside and the outside, the Neo Stretch also offers essential wind protection too - giving you the best of both worlds in one neat, streamlined package.
The Rab Neo is tailor-made for high intensity pursuits that demand optimum freedom of movement, making it the perfect choice for those taking part in a host of different outdoor activities that involve battling against the very worst the weather can throw at you.
