The Outer layer – whether soft or hard shell – comprises weather protective fabrics which can be made of either 100 per cent Australian Merino, or Merino laminated as lining to synthetic hard shell fabrics, usually in combination with membranes or coatings.

Breathability properties make wool suitable for high performance garments in all kinds of outdoor activities or sports, from low to high intensity. It is important that all layers work seamlessly together to move vapour away from the skin and create a dry and insulating microclimate.

With an all-wool layering system the moisture vapour buffering capacity (breathability) provides a transfer effect able to deal with most weather conditions and activity levels.
