These 2layer fabrics are used for the outer layer of the functional garment system. They are woven and either laminated or coated. They can be elastic and must be breathable and waterproof for use in jackets and pants. The term “Lightweight” applies if the construction is under 100g/sqm.

Dominating this table of commercial, waterproof materials are the many new outer surfaces. The selection ranges from lodens to elastic corduroys and wool blends. Some of the laminates have fancy print patterns or jacquards, even with holographic effects or three-dimensional structures. Generally, these fabrics are very urban, while still tops in function with very good abrasion-resistance. Nearly all treatments are PFC-free with many fabrics being made of recycled PES or PA. Polyamides, from biopolymers such as castor beans, are also on the rise.

2Layer April 2018

The 2-layer, weatherproof, functional fabrics are extremely versatile and anything but boring. They run the range from smooth to structured surfaces, from technical to natural look, and from soft touch to more solid textures. Powerful colors alternate with black or natural tones, plus many new prints and structures. Honeycomb, mesh patterns, and color gradients are included just as are melanges, overprinted herringbone, and very fine technical ripstop.
