Features

DRYFLO™

It's easy to see why magazine gear tests consistently rave about Dryflo® performance. Lowe Alpine's base layer fabric uses a permanent technology to shift sweat away from your skin, rather than relying on chemical treatments that can eventually wash out.

Exclusive to Lowe Alpine, Dryflo® is made from 100% polyester fibres that are hydrophobic, resulting in a wicking process that does not absorb moisture (unlike cotton), but uses a unique denier gradient system that mechanically transports moisture away from the body.

Dryflo®'s open knit construction offers high breathability making it the ultimate choice for wearing under waterproof/breathable garments.

Dryflo® is quick drying, giving next to the skin comfort.

Dryflo®'s wicking and breathable properties also make a Dryflo® top the ideal shirt in summer.

Thermal properties are often a consideration for the consumer. All Dryflo® apparel offer optimum warmth without any adverse effect on the wicking or breathability.

TRIPLEPOINT®

Triplepoint® is Lowe Alpine's renowned family of waterproof, breathable fabrics. Tested by mountaineers in the world's wildest places Triplepoint® fabrics are guaranteed to keep you dry and comfortable.

is Lowe Alpine's renowned family of waterproof, breathable fabrics. Tested by mountaineers in the world's wildest places Triplepoint® fabrics are guaranteed to keep you dry and comfortable.

Independent laboratory tests show that Triplepoint® fabrics breathe better in the rain, due to their water-repelling structure. Fabrics use multi-coating high-pressure technologies. The breathable coating is applied to special face fabrics, selected for the particular garment. A Durable Water Repellency (DWR) finish sheds water droplets that might otherwise hinder the breathing process.
