Three-layer Dry Q. Elite
Dry Q. Elite is Mountain Hardwear’s premium waterproofing and breathability technology. It is a layered fabric, with a similar structure to three-layer Gore-Tex: a durable, waterproof outer fabric, waterproof and breathable membrane and a moisture-wicking, bonded liner. However, it works by being constantly active, breathing even when the wearer is standing still. Usually, waterproof and breathable materials don’t start breathing until you’re already sweating, but fabrics with Dry Q. Elite technology start breathing as soon as you put them on, which helps to regulate your body temperature quickly when you do start working hard.
