These fabrics are worn as outer- or mid-layer. They can be elastic and are mostly bonded knits or sometimes bonded woven. Windproof or wind-permeable, water repellent and sometimes even waterproof, these fabrics are used for jackets or pants.

Softshell November 2018

Many sporty, yet natural, double knits are among the new Softshells that use merino for the backings. The loden and corduroy fabrics are also new as are some of the Scottish plaids. In addition to the roughened qualities, more quilted variations and spacers can be found. New three-layer constructions with insulation as the Midlayer are making functional materials suitable for everyday wear. Sportly softshells with mesh backings, fancy prints, and jacquards compete with technical structures. Many of these fabrics are made from recycled materials, for example, PET from plastic bottles and PA from fishing nets.

Softshell April 2018

Softshells are ready for the summertime with light grades and multifaceted finishes. Wool and mesh-backings ensure a good climate balance as does drirelease technology on the inside. Spacers are represented as are double face fabrics with short-sheared backings. The elasticity of these all-rounders is unsurpassed. Three-layer designs with non-woven insulation and triple-weave designs are new. These very lightweight grades for summer hardly weigh more than 100 grams.
