How are Dexshell products both breathable and waterproof?

All of our Dexshell products are manufactured with PORELLE® 'waterproof, breathable' membranes which is manufactured in the UK. They are manufactured by PIL Membranes who have over 30 years' experience in the market. The Porelle membrane is a thin but strong, flexible layer which is embedded between each of our products in the '3 layer construction'. The PORELLE® membrane does not allow water droplet to pass through, making it totally waterproof but it also allows the membrane to breathe by allowing water molecules to pass through the membrane due to the high temperatures and humidity inside our socks, gloves and hats compared to the outside using the osmosis process.

Do Dexshell products require any special waterproofing treatment?

No, our PORELLE® membrane is a permanent waterproof barrier which doesn't require treatment to maintain or restore it's waterproofness.

Will dexshell products keep me warm aswell as waterproof?

Yes. All of our products are listed with a thermal rating 1-5 with 5 being our most thermal. We use a 3 layer construction on our socks, hats and gloves. This keeps them warmer and with the windproof and waterproof PORELLE® membrane it will keep you element repellent and warm.
