DWR stands for 'Durable Water Repellent'. This is a coating added to a fabric in the factory to make it water resistant. It helps stop jackets 'wetting out' and is used on garments which have breathable membranes and those which do not. In garments with breathable membranes 'wetting out' seriously reduced the breathability of the garment and so DWR treatment is an important part of the waterproofing proccess. DWR wears off over time and will need to be re applied with the appropriate Nikwax product.

Polartec's Hardface technology is a treatment which can be added to almost any fabric and provides additional benefits without affecting the functions of the original fabric. This surface-fusion polymer application dramatically increases abrasion and snag resistance, enhances water repellency and creates a smooth surface for layering.
It also increases the lifespan of garments, allowing you to wash them more often without affecting the face of the fabric. Primarily used on fleeces this treatment turns vastly extends the range of conditions that any given product can be used in.
Rumors fly at first freeze, feeding the pursuit of all things frozen and snowy.

Heavier fabric reinforcement in the knees and lower legs protect against ski edges, crampons and the patented knee-scum mixed-climbing technique. The gusseted, 2-snap position bottom cuffs zip open wide to accommodate ski and expedition boots, but also have an elasticised gaiter-style cuff with tie-down loops, for a variety of fits and footwear.
