The softshell is therefore the assembly of a first layer of stretch polyester fabric which provides comfort when worn. The intermediate layer is composed of a microperforated membrane repellent waterproof and windproof but permeable body moisture, all ensuring optimum insulation. The third layer in micropolar fleece guarantees you excellent thermoregulation. This fabric assembly increases the evacuation of perspiration and will allow you to do moderate intensity activities in cold weather.
