Featherlight fabric is the warm weather cousin to Everywhere fabric that is 33% lighter but retains many of the same properties. It’s the most breathable fabric we offer and still offers a water and stain resistant DWR finish as well as UPF 40+ for sun safety. When the temperatures rise, reach for our Featherlight fabric. It offers a similar style with warm weather performance.
Ultraviolet Protection Factor gauges a fabric's effectiveness at filtering both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) light. In everyday terms, a rating of UPF 40+ means the fabric allows less than 2.5% UV transmission. UPF-rated clothing enhances protection against UV-related health risks. Increase your personal safety and decrease your reliance on sunscreen by covering up with our UPF-rated clothing.
DWR (Durable Water Repellency) coating is the outermost finish applied to exclusive 686 fabrics increasing their contact angle and thus repelling water while maintaining high breathability. DWR also helps repel stains and oils that can damage your garment's surface.
