Pertex® Equilibrium® is a lightweight and soft fabric that allows full freedom of movement yet is strong and robust, making it suitable for rigorous use. It has a comparatively low weight and packing volume and has the following main properties:
A soft shell technology breakthrough! TNF™ Apex soft shell fabrics are a signature material, researched and developed exclusively by The North Face®. TNF™ Apex offers the dynamic duo of a tightly woven abrasion-phobic face for protection, and a soft-brushed interior for performance and comfort. Built to stretch for comfort and mobility, TNF™ Apex is also treated with our Durable Water Resistant (DWR) finish to achieve the ideal balance between weather resistance and breathability.
The DWR finish increases watershed and is laboratory tested for durability and extended wash and wear according to the standard AATCC 22 Water Repellency Spray Test. All TNF™ Apex fabrics meet The North Face® standard rating of 90 (70 after a specified number of home washings) for long-term durability.
TNF™ Apex garments are built for warmth and keep you dry in a thick fog or light rain environment. The tightly woven fabric face creates a hard barrier to the elements of cold weather, while the soft-brushed interior allows for a soft warm-next-to-skin feel. The brushed interior also promotes a microclimate, allowing for superior moisture management and continued climate control.
