Dyna-shell is Dynafit’s premium weatherproof, breathable fabric. Similarly to Gore-Tex Active, it is completely waterproof, incredibly lightweight, and packs down very small, which makes it ideal for active sports such as running, cycling and hiking.
The DWR finish has become almost ubiquitous in the outdoor industry, and the satisfying water beading it provides has become the hallmark of a beautiful jacket. It is not strictly waterproof but will provide protection on it’s own against a light shower; however it does wear off so needs to be topped up from time to time. The DWR stops water from soaking into the outer layer of waterproof fabrics like Gore-Tex meaning they remain breathable and light in even in heavy rain.
