Pertex, a manufacturer of extremely lightweight yet highly-durable performance fabrics, has developed new Pertex Shield AP and a lighter weight version of Pertex Shield+.

As per a Pertex press release, Pertex Sheild AP is an ultra, high-performance waterproof breathable fabric, which features an advanced air-porous membrane to offer the highest levels of durability and performance.

“Pertex Shield AP offers enhanced comfort across a range of weather conditions and environments and its durable construction ensures reliable protection throughout the garment’s lifetime,” it added.

New ultra-lightweight Pertex Shield+ is the brand’s lightest 3-ply waterproof breathable fabric and offers extreme wind and water protection with excellent breathability.

“This creates the ultimate waterproof performance fabric for fast-moving outdoor athletes and activities such as alpine climbing, cycling, adventure racing and skiing,” the fabric manufacturer informed.

“Pertex fabrics are developed to match the specific needs of the end-user,” said Steve Laycock, brand director, Pertex.

“By altering the design, construction and finish, we are able to engineer products to suit a range of applications,” he too added.

“We are thrilled to have partnered with Montane and Rab in the design of their new garments made with our new Pertex Shield+ and Pertex Shield AP technologies,” Laycock observed.

For spring/summer 2016, Rab has reengineered its award-winning Flashpoint jacket for men and women with Pertex Shield+ 3 layer fabric.

The shell’s new, super-lightweight fabrication, along with its minimal seams and micro seam tape, offer end users protection from the elements when weight is at a premium.

Montane will introduce its new men’s packable Minimus 777 Jacket and Minimus 777 Pull-On, both made with Pertex Shield+.

These minimalist jackets are designed to go unnoticed in a pack and be pulled out for emergency weather protection while still allowing the wearer to move quickly and comfortably.

Montane’s new men’s and women’s Air Jacket is a light, breathable and versatile mountain shell constructed with Pertex Shield AP.

Designed with a 100 per cent nylon rip-stop face and an advanced air porous membrane, the Air Jacket offers the highest levels of waterproof durability and breathability in a wide range of weather conditions.

The new Pertex fabric range will be presented at the OutDoor Show July 15-18, 2015 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, and at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, August 5-8, 2015 in Salt Lake City, UT.

Founded in the 1970s by Hamish Hamilton and Perseverance Mills Ltd, Pertex was purchased in 2005 by Japanese conglomerate Mitsui & Co. Ltd.
