Not all fabric is created equal

BOA technical outerwear uses a three layer fabric from the eVent DValpine series waterproof breathable fabrics. Superior fabric along with superior zippers and cord locks lead to enhanced performance and durability.

Meet eVent®: A waterproof and breathable membrane

eVent® fabrics are designed to ‘let the sweat out™’. The patented waterproof membrane is constructed of millions of tiny pores. From these pores, sweat vents to the outside of the fabric in one easy step, called Direct Venting™ technology

Choose eVent over GORE-TEX

Whereas GORE-TEX® uses a polyurethane layer in their fabrics to absorb sweat in a two layer process, eVent® application is made to the inner layers of the garment, taking away the need for a PU layer. eVent refers to this as Direct Venting Technology. This means that eVent® is technically more breathable, and therefore quicker to dry than GORE-TEX®. 

eVent® may need more care than a GORE-TEX® alternative as the PU layer protects the PTFE layer from oil and grease. Your eVent® jacket and pants will need to be washed and reproofed more often than a GORE-TEX® alternative. Because of the highly breathable benefits of eVent® this is even more important than with other membranes, as it will keep your eVent® garment performing at its best!
