Schoeller Stretch-Woven Soft-Shell
Schoeller is a Swiss fabric manufacturer best known for its high quality protective fabrics, which are used for everything from alpinism and snow sports to fighting fires. Black Diamond use Schoeller’s stretch woven soft-shell fabric because it’s optimally windproof, breathable and water resistant, making it ideal for aerobic alpine activities. It’s also stretchy and moves with your body, giving you a better range of movement than a shell might.
Merino is a unique type of wool hailing from the merino sheep, and has been a landmark fabric for many a specialist brand. Merino fibres are smoother, softer and lighter than those of standard wooly-jumper wools, which makes them super thermally efficient. Merino fibers also have a natural crimp which means more air pockets for added warmth and breathability, and it’s naturally antibacterial, so it won’t stink after one afternoon on the mountain. Merino also contains Keratin, which is scientifically proven to be really good for your skin, making it one of the best base-layer and underwear materials around. It’s generally more expensive than the equivalent polyester, but is often worth the extra dollar.

Primaloft Silver Hi-Loft is lightweight and compressible, as well as super-warm and loftier than it parent fibre, Primaloft Silver. It maintains 84% of its warmth when it’s wet, making it one of the most effective insulating fibres in the world.
