Pertex, designer and manufacturer of high-performance fabrics, has joined forces with long-standing partners and top outdoor industry manufactures including, Rab, Marmot, Montane, The North Face and Outdoor Research to offer consumers the water- and wind-resistant benefits of Pertex Shield and Pertex Equilibrium fabrics in their outerwear and sleeping bag lines for summer 2013.

“While winter has been our key market in the past, the advances in our Pertex Equilibrium and Shield fabrics have brought the quality and performance manufacturers demand to options suitable for Spring and Summer,” said Steve Laycock, brand manager, Pertex. “The wind and water resistance paired with a unique face and feel make these two fabrics ideal for lightweight summer outerwear and sleeping bags.”

Pertex Shield uses a technically advanced face fabric combined with a proprietary polyurethane laminate to move moisture away from the body providing athletes and adventurers with the perfect balance of weather protection and breathability with flexible, lightweight construction. Both wind and waterproof, Pertex Shield is used in jackets, pants and sleeping bags to ensure dryness whether running, climbing, biking, or adventure racing.

Pertex Equilibrium combines two different yarns with different properties to lift moisture away from the skin to the outside of the fabric where the moisture evaporates. During high aerobic activity, the evaporative heat loss of Equilibrium reduces overheating which, in return, reduces excessive sweating creating body temperature ‘equilibrium.’

Founded in1970, by mountaineer Hamish Hamilton and Perseverance Mills Ltd. based on the theory of Hamilton’s known as capillary action applied to polyamide yarns. Pertex was purchased in 2005 by Mitsui & Co. Ltd., a company dedicated to the research and development of innovative textile technology.
